Teradata Aster (a fully owned subsidiary of Teradata) is a proven leader in big data management and big data analysis for data-driven applications. AsterDB is the first MPP data warehouse architecture that allows applications to be fully embedded within the database engine to enable ultra-fast, deep analysis of massive data sets.

Aster Data's unique "applications-within™" approach allows application logic to exist and execute with the data itself. Termed a "Massively Parallel Data-Application Server," Aster Data's solution effectively uses Aster's patent-pending SQL-MapReduce with parallelized data processing and applications to address the big data challenge.

If you are seeking a startup environment where you can make a huge impact yet require the stability of a well-established and financially stable company, then this is the opportunity for you. Our small teams allow you the opportunity to be visible as an independent contributor yet give you the ability to move into more senior roles including technical leadership and management more readily.

We're looking for people who want to solve incredibly complex problems to build the next generation Internet scale data analytics platform. If you are one of these people, we'd love to hear from you.
