What We're Building

For AI and Big Data application developers, Bigstream's hyper-acceleration provides dataflow run-time software that executes existing data processing platforms on top of next-generation compute systems in a seamless manner. Unlike hardware- and/or platform-specific alternatives, Bigstream offers the highest level of performance instantly with no application changes or loss of API programmatic access.

As a pretty accomplished marketer and technologist, I'm not used to pretty much everyone else in the office being smarter than me, but I wouldn't have it any other way! This company is taking on an enormous engineering challenge: completely transparent hyper-acceleration of big data and machine learning workloads. We've released our first product and we are seeing record-breaking performance for Spark SQL, data ingest, ETL, and machine learning applications. It's a great time to join the company in any capacity
