Principal Software Engineer






Santa Clara, CA, US


Dremio is an exciting, early-stage, Series B, well-funded startup in hyper-growth mode. We are backed by Lightspeed, Norwest, Redpoint and Cisco Ventures.
Dremio’s Data-as-a-Service platform takes a fundamentally new approach to data that eliminates barriers to data access and consumption, enables real time analytics and accelerates time to insights. The platform provides a quantum leap in performance, based on four areas of innovation - Distributed Query Processor that uses cost-based query planning to automatically generates query plans to make optimal use of Data Reflections™ and native pushdowns; Apache Arrow based Distributed Query Execution Engine on 1 to 1000+ nodes, architected for cloud deployments with elastic compute and running on object stores; Data Reflections™ to accelerate data and queries automatically, up to 1000x faster, with the full power of relational algebra; Native Pushdowns with optimized query semantics for each data source – Amazon S3, ADLS, RDBMS, NoSQL, HDFS, and more
At Dremio we are committed to the open source software model. We are the co-creators of Apache Arrow and many of us have been actively committing to projects for nearly a decade. We use a number of open source projects to build Dremio, including projects we embed in our platform, as well as tools we use to build software.
Founded in 2015, Dremio is headquartered in Santa Clara, CA. Connect with Dremio on GitHubLinkedInTwitter, andFacebook and visit for more information on the opportunities at Dremio.
