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
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 the central nervous system to innovate and win in a digital-first world.

In this leadership role on our Product Team, you will lead the core stream processing infrastructure as well as the products, end-to-end solutions, and partnership/ecosystems that will drive the future of the company.

One of the critical aspects of a CNS is the ability to quickly, easily, and consistently process and act on the data streams flowing through the system. In this role, you will manage teams that will bring new functionalities/products to the market. As we are at a very nascent stage of our journey in this new category that we are building, evangelizing and bringing the products to market will be a very critical aspect of this role.

What You Will Do:

  • Create the product strategy to win in this area
  • Deliver on the product strategy by building a roadmap that balances the needs of our customers with our internal stakeholders
  • Develop the right go-to-market strategy for the target segments and personas
  • Align with other teams across the company to ensure our roadmap is unblocked and timelines are in-sync

What You Will Bring:

  • Advanced degree in engineering
  • 10+ years of product management experience in enterprise infrastructure systems (databases, stream processing, etc.) with developed expertise in the domains of stream processing or data infrastructure
  • A history of success in bringing new categories to developers and customers
  • Experience building, mentoring and motivating high performing product management teams 
  • Ability to evangelize and sell the product vision to both customers and internal teams
Come As You Are
