Design jobs at Starburst Data

Starburst Data

Starburst is on a mission to modernize data access & analytics. Our company was founded in an unusual way; with customers and revenue from the beginning! Our growth is already ahead of some of the most successful software start-ups, and we don’t plan on slowing down.

We believe our opportunity is huge. Every large company in the world suffers from a data silo problem. Traditional data warehouse products approach the problem with old solutions that breed inefficiency and ultimately can’t help business analysts run fast analytics on all their data. 

Starburst provides a modern solution that addresses these data silo & speed of access problems. Starburst helps enterprises harness the value of open source Trino (formerly PrestoSQL), the fastest distributed query engine available today, by adding the tools and 24x7 support that meet the needs for big data access at scale. Ultimately, Starburst helps organizations run analytics anywhere to make better business decisions.

Are you a skilled designer and research enthusiast pursuing a future in user experience? The UX team at Starburst Data is seeking a summer intern to help make an impact in the lives of our customers through customer research, user data, and iterative prototyping to deliver amazing designs. You will apply your education and refine your design and research skills with hands-on experience. 

Throughout your internship, you’ll partner with and be mentored by senior UX designers, and work closely with the product team, engineering, and writers. We expect that you’ll complete the internship with a quality piece you can showcase in your portfolio.

This paid internship will span 12 weeks in Summer 2021.

Core responsibilities:

    • Collaborate with product managers, engineers, and writers.
    • Participate in user research and interaction studies.
    • Translate requirements into user journeys, wireframes, and prototypes.

    • Experience applying user-centered design methodologies.
    • Experience with design and prototyping tools (including Figma).
