Starburst announces $42m series B: We're Hiring!
Our company was founded in an unusual way; with customers and revenue from the beginning. For over a decade, and across three companies, our Founding Team has been focused on solving the pains of data access – it’s too slow, inflexible, and expensive. Starburst provides a modern solution that addresses these data silo and speed of access problems. We help companies harness the value of open source Presto, the fastest distributed query engine available today, by adding the connectors, security, and 24×7 support that meet the needs for fast data access at scale.
Our mission is to build a real business in support of our vision. Starburst has humble bootstrapped roots that allowed us to focus on building a sustainable business. It takes delivering tremendous customer value alongside retaining a frugal operating mindset.
We do not model ourselves after high-burn Unicorns.
Unicorns aren’t real.
We think of ourselves as workhorses – Clydesdales if you will – because they embody hard work, strength, and are cool.
Humility – Continuous Self-Improvement.
We’re all trying to become better versions of ourselves. That requires you to welcome feedback. The goal is to get to the right answer, and we all need to check our egos in that pursuit.
Ownership – Drivers Wanted.
You own your own performance and ultimately your destiny. Regardless of the role you perform here, we want drivers. If you see something that can be improved, don’t wait for someone else to improve it. Every employee has equity and this is truly your company – and ours.
Meritocracy – Rewards Are Earned.
Those who work the hardest and perform the best earn rewards. Rewards = All-Star Bucks and increased compensation. Rewards ≠ first-class flights, boondoggles, and spa days.
Grit – We Never Stop.
Startups have ups and downs. When we inevitably face hard times, your inner drive helps you stay the course and work harder. You’re addicted to the grind and RSVP to no drama.
Authenticity – Be Genuine. Have Integrity.
We’re real people building a real business. We expect you to bring your whole self to work and operate with honesty.
