About Starry:

Starry is reinventing the way people connect to the internet. Our mission focuses on two things. First, we’re making the experience of accessing the internet simple, transparent, and delightful.

You are a software engineer with a BS or MS in Software, Computer, or Electrical engineering or equivalent discipline/experience and are comfortable developing in C++ or Rust. Experience in Python is also good to have. You have at least four years experience with a product based company, but equivalent experience will be considered.
