About Starburst
At Starburst, we are working to dismantle the status quo of data silos and vendor lock-in every single day. For decades, database companies have held their customers hostage and we believe that’s just plain wrong. Starburst offers a full-featured data lake analytics platform, built on open source Trino. Our platform includes all the capabilities needed to discover, organize, and consume data without the need for time-consuming and costly migration projects. Today more than 300 leading organizations trust us to make better decisions faster.
Though Starburst has raised $414M in venture funding from top investors, we were founded in a rather unusual way as we bootstrapped the business with customers and revenue from the very beginning! We are a remote-first company with employees all over the world and are proud to be named a Best Place to Work. Come join our team of All-Stars!
About the role
As a product manager, you’ll work closely with engineering, UX, and other product managers to deliver core functionality to improve Galaxy's performance, connectivity, scalability, and security. This is an incredible opportunity to solve some of our most strategic and hardest technical and customer problems in the data space.

As a Product Manager at Starburst you will:

  • Build and deliver on a roadmap that balances the needs of customers and internal teams with clear prioritization based on data-driven customer insights
  • Collaborate with teams globally across multiple time zones and operate in an Agile development environment
  • Align with other teams that depend on you across the company to ensure you understand their future needs and our roadmap is unblocked and timelines are in-sync
  • Own cross-functional interactions for your features
  • Ccollect & summarize usage data/dashboards for decision making and OKR tracking

Some of the things we look for:

  • Experience as a product manager or technical product manager
  • A deep understanding of the technical landscape and markets, experience in databases, data warehousing, and data lakes, and familiarity with many of the data infrastructure products in the industry is a nice to have
  • Experience with Iceberg or Delta Lake is strongly preferred
  • Demonstrated experience prioritizing work while effectively collaborating with teams for multiple products dependent on your roadmap
  • Entrepreneurial and self-motivated personality with a track record for delivering results in a fast-moving environment
