Presto (https://github.com/prestodb/presto) is an open source, high performance, distributed SQL engine that aims to make SQL analytics over big data fast and easy. It offers rich SQL language capabilities, including aggregations, joins, window functions, and other complex SQL constructs for data engineers, data scientists, and business analysts to quickly and interactively process terabytes to petabytes of data.
PrestoDB project has a public fork that has features that are not available in PrestoDB and are being asked for in the PrestoDB community, such as, Apache Iceberg connector, Google cloud integration, etc.
We are looking for a software engineer contractor to work with the Presto team to port those features to the PrestoDB project.
Strong software engineering background with a keen eye on both performance and correctness. Significant experience in Java (required) and experience with distributed systems/database systems is preferred (optional).
BS/MS and 5+ years of Software Engineering experience
