Confluent is looking for a functional Sr Project Manager to act as a force-multiplier focused on increasing execution efficiency.

In this role you will provide support on projects and work streams focused on the People orgs transformation, operational excellence and strategic improvements. As a ‘go-to’ person, you will be instrumental in guiding the seamless transition from big picture to details while navigating tight timelines.

What You Will Do:

  • Drive planning processes by leading conversations with key stakeholders to develop concepts into defined deliverables and ensure execution reliability.

  • Engage and energize project teams to achieve aggressive goals.
  • Leverage general knowledge to conduct simple analyses and establish performance metrics. 
  • Solicit and evaluate feedback to determine appropriate actions, solutions and initiatives needed.
  • Create and deliver clear and detailed documentation and presentations for complex projects

What You Will Bring:

  • Strong project management skills and ability to manage competing priorities without losing sight of the most important initiatives.
  • Practical working knowledge and experience in human resources with at least one full deployment project leveraging key HR systems (e.g. HCM/HRIS, LMS, ATS, etc.).
  • Demonstrable experience in analyzing business needs and aligning them to project execution and KPIs.
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills to be able to influentially drive alignment among stakeholders while ensuring execution accountability across teams.
  • Deductive problem solving for moderate to highly complex problems; some limited data analysis may be required.
  • Proven ability to clearly document and articulate goals, requirements, timelines, resources and risk within and across cross-functional teams.

What Gives You an Edge:

  • Experience with Workday
  • Exposure to Tableau
  • PMP certification(s)
  • Experience working in high growth public company setting
