Description

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 platform makes it ridiculously easy to discover and query huge datasets regardless of the data’s format and location. Dremio Distributed Querying Processor can query data across on-prem or cloud data sources ranging from Amazon S3, ADLS, RDBMS, NoSQL, HDFS and more. Dremio accelerates the retrieval of data via the use of its proprietary Data Reflections™ which results in retrieval times that are up to 1000x faster. 
 
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.
 
We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building successful products or systems. You’re comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces, working in a fast paced environment and dealing with ambiguity.
