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:

Confluent Cloud delivers a complete end-to-end streaming experience via a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. To continue its expansion, Confluent Cloud is targeting the US public sector market and is starting by getting the FedRAMP certification. However, winning this market will require a lot more than a certification. Which features are blocking deals? How to have a compliant yet consistent experience? How to be as fast as possible?

The Senior Product Manager for Confluent Cloud Platform will focus on completing FedRAMP certification, defining a roadmap to win the streaming US public sector market and iterating on Confluent government clouds. This role will be directly responsible for the product management of our core cloud platform in Confluent government clouds.


What You Will Do:

  • Achieve FedRAMP certification
  • Own Confluent’s government clouds roadmap
  • Collect government customers' requirements
  • Develop product specifications for all government cloud-specific features
  • Coordinate across Confluent FedRAMP teams and commercial cloud teams
  • Drive product-led growth for government clouds
  • Enable field to sell Confluent government clouds
  • Drive product-led growth for Confluent government clouds
  • Help marketing to target government customers


What You Will Bring:

  • 5+ years of cloud experience in a PaaS or SaaS stack
  • Experience working in the public sector
  • Experience defining functional specifications, including mapping compliance requirements into product/technical specifications
  • Excellent communication skills and experience working in a collaborative and consensus-driven environment
  • Multi-cloud or hybrid experience a plus
