Real-Time Data at Massive Scale

Backed by Index Ventures, Benchmark, and Sequoia Capital, Confluent is an infrastructure company founded and led by the original authors and thought leaders behind Apache Kafka™, one of the most successful open source data projects ever. Confluent’s products let leaders in industries spanning retail, logistics, manufacturing, financial services, technology and media move data from isolated silos into a real-time data nervous system. We believe all businesses will come to be modeled in software and built atop a streaming platform, and we want to put ours at the heart of every company, both on prem and in the cloud.

Confluent technical trainers are often the first point of contact customers have with the company. As a member of this team, you are the sort of person who is comfortable explaining highly complex subjects to people with clarity, patience, and empathy. You are just as passionate about teaching open-source and proprietary products to your students. You have experience teaching courses to groups large and small, in public venues and on-site with clients. Nothing makes you happier than connecting with a room full of people and creating an environment in which they are able to learn and master exciting new things. You are US-based, but you’re okay traveling up to 75% of the time.

Experience We Are Looking For:

  • You’re a good Java programmer and a decent Linux admin
  • You have amazing presentation skills
  • You have experience teaching technical topics to small and large groups
  • You always want to learn new technology, and you have a real drive to help other people understand it

Skills That Give You an Edge:

  • You know Apache Kafka
  • You have previous experience teaching open source technologies
  • You understand large-scale distributed systems
  • You have experience creating training materials

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.
