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 is looking for an experienced technical communicator with software development experience to help drive adoption and awareness of Confluent among technical audiences such as developers, architects, and technical executives. Confluent makes it easy to use Apache Kafka to set your data in motion, and we need your help in creating compelling market-facing technical materials that help bring Confluent to life. You’ll work closely with our product marketing, product management, and technical teams as you show users like yourself exactly how Confluent can help them overcome their challenges.


What You Will Do:

  • Create, maintain and support compelling demos and examples that showcase the value of Confluent 
  • Work with product and product marketing teams to determine technical content plans across solutions, use cases, differentiated features, and product launches geared towards a technical audience 
  • Author technical blogs, whitepapers, and reference architectures on Confluent solutions, use cases, and features, as well as Apache Kafka and data analytics more broadly
  • Conduct and support workshops, interactive webinars and other hands-on events showcasing Confluent
  • Engage with technical influencers and contributors looking to learn more about Confluent and Apache Kafka or to evaluate streaming alternatives across online third-party platforms
  • Evangelize solutions to the  most common and high-impact use cases that our customers are facing in webinars, talks, documentation, and examples
  • Identify any product gaps inhibiting GTM success for Confluent and work with Product Management to prioritize developer needs into the roadmap


What You Will Bring:

  • Experience as a technical marketing manager, software developer, solutions architect, technical sales engineer, trainer, curriculum developer, technical writer or a developer relations person 
  • Ability to write top-quality code samples and mini-applications to tie our technology offerings to our marketing initiatives
  • Some knowledge of Apache Kafka, distributed systems, and fully managed cloud infrastructure
  • A knack for building on-the-job technical proficiency in new or unfamiliar technologies
  • Experience recording screencasts and instructional videos of your talks and articles
  • A track record of working in a cross-functional role that balances the needs of different stakeholders, while still prioritizing the customer/developer

What Gives You an Edge: 

  • Good JVM language programmer (Java preferred) with experience in other commonly used languages and technologies
  • The curiosity to keep up to date on the latest technologies related to Confluent, streaming data, and distributed systems
  • Practical experience with cloud architectures, fully managed cloud services, and comparable offerings from cloud service providers
