Description

With Confluent, organisations can harness the full power of continuously flowing data to innovate and win in the modern digital world. We have a purpose that drives us to do better every day – we're creating an entirely new category within data infrastructure - data streaming. This technology will allow every organisation 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:

The Confluent Cloud Platform based on Apache Kafka is the leading Cloud Native Platform as a Service for streaming data infrastructure, but this is just the beginning. We are building a PaaS enabling customer around the globe to deliver streaming applications.

What You Will Do:

  • Design, implement and maintain Golang infrastructure services (typically implemented as Kubernetes operators) to deliver the Confluent cloud foundations to the wider engineering organization
  • Terraform, Datadog, Prometheus and a strong command of Linux, public cloud and networking should come as standard - though Golang software engineering will be your primary focus
  • As a Confluent Cloud Infrastructure Software Engineer, you will be working alongside the rest of the Confluent engineers to build our PaaS product
  • You, and the rest of the team, will be responsible for the availability, performance, monitoring, emergency response, and capacity planning of the Confluent cloud
  • If you love the hum of big data systems covering 10,000's of instances, thinking about how to make them run as smoothly and securely as possible, and want to have a big influence on the architecture plus operational design points of this new product, then you will fit right in

What You Will Bring:

  • BS, MS, or PhD in computer science or a related field, or equivalent work experience
  • 2-4 years of relevant cloud infrastructure/cloud networking experience
  • Strong fundamentals in distributed systems design and development
  • Experience building and operating large-scale systems
  • Solid understanding of basic systems operations (disk, network, operating systems, etc)
  • A self-starter with the ability to work effectively in teams
  • Proficiency in Go, Python, C++, or other statically typed languages
  • Experience/knowledge with public clouds (AWS, Azure or GCP)

What Gives You an Edge:

  • Experience with Golang is advantageous
  • Experience using Apache Kafka is a big plus
