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:

As a Staff Product Manager and product owner on the Distributed Cloud Product team, you’ll contribute to the mission of making the world’s best event streaming platform run everywhere. The Distributed Cloud team is responsible for the product experience of operating a streaming platform in customer’s own environments and across the private and public cloud.

You’ll be responsible for the success of a major product initiative, from initial conception and customer development to growth strategy. You’ll become the trusted resource for your product, making sure that the engineering, design, sales, and marketing have what they need to make the right tradeoffs, build the right product, and grow it successfully in the market. You’ll become the face of the product to customers and the market.

What you will do / Responsibilities:-

  • Set the strategy: Identify opportunities for Confluent to better serve operators across infrastructures by executing tried-and-true playbooks and inventing entirely new approaches.
  • Understand our users: Conduct interviews and analyze data to define personas, user journeys, and key jobs to be done.
  • Work across constituencies: Create shared understanding and direction across engineering, product, business development, support, sales, and marketing teams within Confluent and externally with our partners.
  • Be responsible for the whole lifecycle: Drive multi-company, cross-functional initiatives from conception through initial delivery and ongoing iteration after launch.
  • Close the loop: Define quantitative and qualitative targets, measure performance against them, share results with stakeholders, and incorporate those learnings into the next development cycle.
  • Manage complexity: Deliver value while handling the surprises and challenges of a quickly evolving product, ambitious partnership targets, and a rapidly growing organization.

What We're Looking For:

  • Experience with Enterprise software deployment, monitoring and security architectures
  • Experience building and supporting enterprise-grade products as an engineer, product manager, or solutions architect.
  • Experience building, writing, maintaining and defending a clear product roadmap and backlog backed by user stories and customer research.
  • 10+ years of experience as a product owner or product manager although exceptions might be made for seasoned engineers with strong customer focus.
  • Exceptional written and presentation skills. At Confluent we rely heavily on documents to explain the vision and facilitate concrete communication.
  • Ability to build relationships with co-workers and customers located around the world.
  • Demonstrated ability to drive business outcomes through product changes
