This technology will allow every organization to create experiences and use the power of data in ways that profoundly impact the way we all live. This impact is our purpose and drives us to do better every day.

One Confluent. One team. One Data Streaming Platform.

Data Connects Us.

About the Role:

We are seeking a product engineering leader to drive the Access Management Foundations team in the Product Security organization against a large and ambitious roadmap. As Confluent grows and introduces new and exciting features, the Product Security organization is involved from the ground up to see to it that there is a tight security integration and ensure the best customer experience on our streaming data platform. The deeply-experienced team is responsible for not only setting critical directions in how customers are able to utilize different product features at Confluent, but also developing foundational components of our product security story for others to build from.

What You Will Do:

  • Own the overall vision and execution for the Access Management Foundations team in the Product Security Engineering organization
  • Work closely with product management, engineering leadership, and other key stakeholders across various teams in Confluent and Confluent Cloud to build and drive the overall roadmap
  • Deliver high impact to the business by driving important technical initiatives in areas comprising (but not limited to) security, reliability, multi-tenancy, architectural direction, and major component refactor across organizational boundaries
  • Work with engineering teams and product on critical aspects of product definition, architectural design, and delivery
  • Influence the overall domain health and operational hygiene for the Cloud Platform

What You Will Bring:

  • 10+ years of experience in software development and 4+ years in management
  • Experience designing resilient systems at scale, in the three major CSPs (AWS, Azure, GCP), with a proven track record of seeing around corners to reduce complexity and create critical enduring technical foundations
  • Ability to influence the team, peers, and upper management using effective communication and collaborative techniques
  • Ability to hire while ensuring a high hiring bar, keep engineers motivated, coach/mentor, and handle performance management
  • A great track record of timely shipping features and have a sense of urgency, an aggressive mindset towards achieving results, and excellent prioritization skills
  • Bachelors or Master's degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent
