To Build a Great Company, Build a Great Team

We believe that an important part of building a great company is making sure that our employees are the best they can be.

Smart, Humble, and Empathetic

Smart, Humble, and Empathetic

Our employees appreciate, benefit, and learn from working with other smart, humble, and empathetic people. We strive to hire those who care deeply about others and interact with empathy towards our customers, partners, and employees.

Be Fired up and Get It Done

Be Fired up and Get It Done

As much as we benefit from working with smart, humble, and empathetic employees, we also need to “get it done” to pursue our enormous market opportunity. We are in hyper-growth mode and are scaling to fill the demands of the market and our current and future customers.

Tasteful not Wasteful

Tasteful not Wasteful

We want to invest in areas that matter the most -- in other words, spend “tastefully,” not wastefully. We believe that thoughtful spending is essential to building a high-quality business.

One Team

One Team

It is critical that we act as and make decisions as a unified company, doing our best to optimize globally rather than locally. This means doing our best to avoid the politics, misalignment, and tribalism companies can be prone to. It means recognizing that we succeed individually and as teams, only if Confluent succeeds as a whole.
