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.

External Thought Leadership: Shape the industry thinking around Event Streaming, with a particular focus on Developers, Architects, CTOs. Drive adoption of Apache Kafka and Confluent products.
Product Direction and Prototyping: Recommend notable changes in technology direction to Product/Engineering. Prototype early-stage ideas, explore practicalities of different software approaches and formalize new strategies for implementing them.

What sort of person are you?
You’re likely working as a senior engineer or architect, applying your understanding of software, people, organizations and products to solve the big problems faced in software delivery. Your career has at least some focus on data engineering and event streaming. You may well have written a book, be a keen blogger, or occasional conference speaker, motivated by your desire to get your ideas out into the world. Alternatively, you may have taken a different path to a similar place: for example, coming from a product management role or having worked as a developer advocate.
