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.

Confluent sets Data in Motion via its various solutions like Kafka, KSQLDB, Connect, Schema Registry, etc. These solutions are deployed across all major cloud providers in 1000s of instances. Managing this Fleet of instances for our customers along with Confluent internal services is the responsibility of the Fleet Management team. We are working towards building a complete and compliant platform to safely and scalably run operations on the fleet. Fleet Management is a young, fast-growing, and high-performing team sitting inside the broader Cloud Control Plane org.
