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
We seek an experienced, accomplished, and high-impact ISV alliances leader to join our Partner Ecosystems team. Given our aspiration to make event streaming the central nervous system of the modern digital business, a robust cloud partner ecosystem is not only essential to our success but represents an x-factor opportunity as we create this new event-streaming category.
This is a true strategy-through-execution role. You will drive the vision, prioritization, and development of partnerships with our larger ISV partners and ensure that these relationships deliver against business and strategic goals. You will also be comfortable rolling up your sleeves to lead contract negotiations and define and execute mutual goals and metrics. This will require excellent leadership, business, technology, and relationship skills as you work across all facets of the business to align requisite cross-functional leaders, both at Confluent and with our partners.
You will leverage your industry insight and experience to make recommended adjustments to strategy to ensure business and mutual partnership success. To make all this happen will leverage your industry-leading competencies in (a) building and managing a portfolio of ISV partnerships specifically within the SaaS applications sector, (b) developing joint business plans, value propositions, campaigns, and GTM strategies, and (c) delivering against aggressive multi-year financial and strategic goals.
