Real-Time Data at Massive Scale


Backed by Benchmark, Sequoia Capital, and Index Ventures, Confluent is one of the fastest growing startups in Silicon Valley. Founded by the team that built Apache Kafka, Confluent provides a streaming platform that enables companies to easily access data as real-time streams. In addition to our enterprise platform, we recently launched our cloud offering, Apache Kafka as a Service, which will allow companies of all sizes to leverage the power of streaming data. Join us on our mission to put a streaming platform at the heart of every company!

About the Role:
As a Product Manager at Confluent, you’ll work across the company to make this vision a reality. 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.

What We're Looking For:

  • Minimum 3 years experience as a software product manager, ideally for a developer product
  • Empathy for our enterprise customers, and a passion for solving their problems with software
  • Technical background. Apache Kafka™ is transforming the core data infrastructure of many companies, and Confluent’s products are leading this transformation
  • Ability to craft a product strategy and roadmap in concert with customers, engineering, design, and go-to-market teams
  • Excellent communication skills, including the ability to distill technical concepts to a non-technical audience
  • Entrepreneurial or leadership experience
  • Direct experience with modern distributed data products (ideally, Apache Kafka™) and deep knowledge of the open-source data software ecosystem is a plus
  • Experience defining product management’s role in an organization (our product team is currently 4 people!) would be a plus
  • Bachelor's, Master’s, or PhD in Computer Science or related technical field


About Confluent

Our Story Founded by the team that built Apache Kafka®, Confluent builds a streaming platform that enables companies to easily access data as real-time streams Background Every byte of data has a story to tell, something of significance that will inform the next thing to be done. In a data-driven enterprise, how we move our data becomes nearly as important as the data itself. With greater speed and agility, data’s value increases exponentially. From its very early days, we have open-sourced Apache Kafka™ and have led it to impressive industry-wide adoption across several thousand companies. Now we are focusing on building a streaming platform to help other companies get easy access to enterprise data as real-time streams.
