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.

To be successful in this role you must have the experience, rapport-building skills, and technical acumen to put together and implement a strategic plan for continually evolving our HRIS system to meet the needs of all stakeholders.

  • Provide leadership, prioritization, and development opportunities for the HRIS team to optimize operational excellence and develop talent
  • Lead the architecture and design of how Workday and other cross-functional and downstream systems share information across platforms
  • Ensure Workday setup and configuration is accurate and maintained for the US and international countries where Confluent has employees
  • Own compliance and operating standards including documentation of requirements, change control governance, testing, and appropriate approvals.

What We're Looking For

  • 10+ years of HRIS experience, including 2+ years of Global HRIS experience and 5+ years managing an HRIS team, including remote employees
  • Experience with Workday configuration at a minimum for HCM and Workday report writing
  • Experience with system architecture and design to enable sharing of information across platforms
  • Strong project management experience leading project-based initiatives against a strategic roadmap partnering with non-technical stakeholders
  • Ability to coach and mentor direct reports
  • Ability to meet aggressive deadlines while adapting to changes in scope as needed
