Confluent is pioneering a fundamentally new category of data infrastructure focused on data in motion. Have you ever found a new favourite 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 organisations 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 organisation. With Confluent, organisations 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 energised to roll up their sleeves and help realise 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 a functional Project Manager to act as a force-multiplier focused on increasing execution efficiency. Reporting to the Head of People Strategy and PMO, you’ll serve as a centralized resource and partner closely with all of our People functions and other cross-functional stakeholders.    

In this role you will provide support on projects and work streams focused on the People orgs transformation, operational excellence and strategic improvements. As a ‘go-to’ person, you will be instrumental in guiding the seamless transition from big picture to details while navigating tight timelines. You will facilitate cohesive collaboration within and across organizations by providing operational discipline, identifying and mitigating dependencies and risks, and forging strong relationships through effective communication.   


What You Will Do:   

  • Drive planning processes by leading conversations with key stakeholders to develop concepts into defined deliverables and ensure execution reliability.
  • Continuously improve and scale the People organization by sharing project frameworks, tools, and best practices that can be easily adopted to increase delivery efficiency.
  • Lead and manage complex and large scale cross-team, cross-functional initiatives from inception through deployment including defining scope and execution milestones.
  • Proactively evaluate and resolve obstacles and balance competing priorities through fluid communication with project stakeholders.
  • Engage and energize project teams to achieve aggressive goals.
  • Leverage general knowledge to conduct simple analyses and establish performance metrics.
  • Solicit and evaluate feedback to determine appropriate actions, solutions and initiatives needed.
  • Create and deliver clear and detailed documentation and presentations for complex projects.


What You Will Bring:   

  • Strong project management skills and ability to manage competing priorities without losing sight of the most important initiatives.
  • Practical working knowledge and experience in human resources with at least one full deployment project leveraging key HR systems (e.g. HCM/HRIS, LMS, ATS, etc.).
  • Demonstrable experience in analyzing business needs and aligning them to project execution and KPIs.
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills to be able to influentially drive alignment among stakeholders while ensuring execution accountability across teams.
  • Deductive problem solving for moderate to highly complex problems; some limited data analysis may be required.
  • Proven ability to clearly document and articulate goals, requirements, timelines, resources and risk within and across cross-functional teams.


What Gives You an Edge:   

  • Experience with Workday
  • Exposure to Tableau
  • PMP certification(s)
  • Experience working in high growth public company setting
