Ab Initio Software

About Ab Initio Software

Ab Initio transforms how companies work with data, from data discovery and strategy through implementation and governance.

We build a high performance, general purpose data processing and analysis product suite, and combine it with an incredible level of implementations expertise and support. Our customers are from a wide range of industries, including finance, healthcare, communications, manufacturing, and retail.

Through our college hiring program, we hire for a variety of roles, including software development, technical consulting, and technical writing. Our development stack includes C++/Java/Typescript and React, and we solve challenging technical problems at all levels of the stack, from working on the core of our fault tolerant, highly scalable data processing platform, to designing intuitive UIs for non-technical users.

We also have an 11-week summer internship program for computer science students.


Software Engineering Intern

June 2020 - August 2020 Lexington, MA
“For the first couple of weeks, we'd do a lot of coding together. But once I got the hang of things, I was able to do a lot of implementation by myself. I really enjoyed working on my project with my mentors, who were almost always available to lend a hand or point me in the right direction. One of the things I like about the culture is that it is truly a learning culture. I was never looked down on for asking questions or making mistakes. Rather, I was always encouraged to ask questions and learned how to fix and prevent future mistakes.”

“The people are all incredibly smart, dedicated, and willing to drop anything and help out. They also put a lot of thought and effort into ensuring that the remote internship was a good experience. There was a wide range of projects, and mine evolved to become something bigger that will be carried forward by the team.”
