Confluent is pioneering a fundamentally new category of data infrastructure focused on data in motion. Have you ever found a new favorite series on Netflix, picked up groceries curbside at Walmart, or paid for something using Square? That’s the power of data in motion in action—giving organizations instant access to the massive amounts of data that is constantly flowing throughout their business. At Confluent, we’re building the foundational platform for this new paradigm of data infrastructure. Our cloud-native offering is designed to be the intelligent connective tissue enabling real-time data, from multiple sources, to constantly stream across the organization. With Confluent, organizations can create a central nervous system to innovate and win in a digital-first world.

We’re looking for self-motivated team members who crave a challenge and feel energized to roll up their sleeves and help realize Confluent’s enormous potential. Chart your own path and take healthy risks as we solve big problems together. We value having diverse teams and want you to grow as we grow—whether you’re just starting out in your career or managing a large team, you’ll be amazed at the magnitude of your impact.

About the Role
As a Developer Advocate for Confluent, you will help developers be successful using Apache Kafka and Confluent technologies and feel awesome while they do it. During the pandemic, you won’t travel much, but you will engage with the community online and build compelling content from home. You’re eager to be part of a diverse distributed team with big goals, and you have an unremittingly positive attitude. Ultimately, you will help developers achieve our mission: to build a streaming data platform and put it at the heart of every company.

What You Will Do:

  • Write sample code, build creative new conference talks, make screencasts, make compelling tutorial videos, and write some of the best blog posts the streaming data world has ever seen
  • Engage/present at conferences and meetups online and in-person (when possible) with the community of developers, ops professionals, and other distributed systems enthusiasts around the world, teaching and inspiring them to apply event streaming technologies more effectively
  • Help other developers by interacting on Confluent Community Slack, Stack Overflow, Twitter, GitHub, or places where developers come for help online
  • Represent the developer community to the Confluent product and engineering teams, making sure that everything we build is easy to learn and sensible to use
  • Collaborate on and support initiatives in our developer strategy (content, community, training, engagement) centered around developer.confluent.io

What You Will Bring:

  • You have experience as a software developer
  • You enjoy teaching, making complex concepts simple, and reframing technology in a way that inspires
  • You can write top-quality blogs, code samples and mini-applications to demonstrate the technologies you want to teach
  • You can record screencasts and instructional videos of your talks and articles
  • You’re a fun, confident speaker at conferences and meetups—even online
  • You can convincingly argue from the developer's perspective

What Gives You an Edge:

  • You’ve worked languages such as Python, Javascript, or C#
  • You know something about databases, analytics, or back-end systems in an enterprise context
  • You’re active in a technical community, as an open-source contributor, organizer, helping others on Slack/Stack Overflow, etc.
Come As You Are
