Real-Time Data at Massive Scale

Duration: Full-Time


Confluent is pioneering a fundamentally new category of data infrastructure focused on data in motion. Have you ever found a new favorite series on Netflix, picked up groceries curbside at Walmart, or paid for something using Square? That’s the power of data in motion in action—giving organizations instant access to the massive amounts of data that is constantly flowing throughout their business. At Confluent, we’re building the foundational platform for this new paradigm of data infrastructure. Our cloud-native offering is designed to be the intelligent connective tissue enabling real-time data, from multiple sources, to constantly stream across the organization. With Confluent, organizations can create a central nervous system to innovate and win in a digital-first world.

We’re looking for self-motivated team members who crave a challenge and feel energized to roll up their sleeves and help realize Confluent’s enormous potential. Chart your own path and take healthy risks as we solve big problems together. We value having diverse teams and want you to grow as we grow—whether you’re just starting out in your career or managing a large team, you’ll be amazed at the magnitude of your impact.

As a Senior Product Manager in the Kafka Connect team at Confluent, you’ll contribute to the mission of building the world’s best event streaming platform. You will help drive Confluent’s open-source contributions, as well as, Confluent’s Enterprise feature portfolio. You will also be responsible for enabling seamless, enterprise-grade integration between Kafka and common external systems and supporting on-premise deployments and fully managed services in Confluent Cloud.

  • 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 4 years of experience as a software product manager, ideally for a developer product, and 6-8 years of experience in overall technical roles.
  • Empathy for our enterprise customers, and a passion for solving their problems with the software.
  • 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
  • Strong technical competency, especially with distributed data systems, public and private clouds, and stream processing
  • Experience with a modern integration platform is a plus
  • Experience with CDC (Change Data Capture) technologies is a plus
  • Experience engaging with an open-source community is a plus
  • MBA is a strong plus

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.
