Want to work on a data analytics platform that responds so quickly that incredulous prospects believe it must be broken? A platform that returns query results in seconds, instead of hours, days, or even months?

We’re HP Vertica, a Boston-based startup and a rapidly growing Big Data analytics company, with engineering offices in Boston, Sunnyvale, and Pittsburgh. If you want to look past basic MapReduce and tackle the really Big Data problems really fast, then we want you to join our team as an intern or a full-time developer.

At HP Vertica, we deal with interesting problems in distributed systems, fault tolerance, optimization, and machine learning. We control the whole engine. Our customers such as Facebook, Zynga put in any data and ask whatever questions they want; it’s our job to make that easy and fast. It’s a practical twist around some tough theoretical problems.

We’re also in the unique position of being able to operate like a startup, while also leveraging big-company resources. We’re part of HP, but we operate as an independent unit. Think of us as a start-up that has maintained that small-company atmosphere and hunger to achieve, while also enjoying the perks and backing of a large, stable company.


We are seeking skilled candidates in the following functions

Why should you choose HP Vertica?

HP Vertica hires summer interns every year. We are looking for those students who are passionate about gaining experience within the Big Data field and aren’t afraid to admit they are a nerd or “brogrammer.” We after all, are an equal opportunity employer. All of our internships are paid and allow students to work closely with industry leaders while being a part of a cross functional team. All of the internship projects align with the students’ academic interests. Our interns have a blast while they continue to develop their professional/ technical skills. Did we mention that many of the students that participate in the program are either asked back or converted to a fulltime employee upon graduation? Now that’s pretty rad, especially in a slowly upturning economy.
