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 Cloud delivers a complete end-to-end streaming experience via a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. To deliver a simple, understandable, and scalable product experience requires abstracting the complex interactions of underlying cloud infrastructure, networking, storage, and compute powering a stateful distributed system. The Product Manager for Confluent Cloud Networking will focus on making the complex network infrastructure reliable, scalable, flexible, secure, and easy to work with so customers can focus on building streaming applications instead of managing infrastructure or mastering Kafka internals. This role will be directly responsible for the product management of our core cloud platform network infrastructure.

  • Developing product and technical specifications for Confluent Cloud network infrastructure
  • Technical validation of proposed network architectures and solutions
  • Coordinating multiple teams who are both providers and consumers of our internal services.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Product management experience and overall experience in PaaS or SaaS domain with a focus on cloud networking, Load Balancing, and DNS 
  • Experience defining product functional specifications including API, CLI, and GUI Excellent communication skills and experience working in a collaborative and consensus-driven environment
  • Experience with AWS/Azure/GCP networking and load balancing technologies
