Confluent is pioneering a fundamentally new category of data infrastructure focused on data in motion. Have you ever found a new favourite 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 organisations 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 organisation. With Confluent, organisations 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 energised to roll up their sleeves and help realise 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.

Can you imagine creating a paradigm shift in a global enterprise’s infrastructure?

Are you equally at home rolling up your sleeves and solving deep technical challenges using the most cutting edge real time data solutions as you are presenting complex use cases to a varied business audience?

Would you enjoy guiding leading enterprises as they embark on projects that utilise the power of real time data whilst simultaneously interacting internally across a hyper-growth product company as it redefines the way the world uses its data.

If the answer to these questions is yes then the Confluent Professional Services organisation could be your perfect next home.

Confluent’s Professional Services organisation is far from a traditional vendor outfit, we are not defined by utilisation rate and margins, we are defined by customer success. The strategic significance of the team cannot be overstated, our Solution Architects play an essential role in enabling our customers to successfully deploy the Confluent Platform, either on-prem, in the cloud, and hybrid solutions.

On top of the customer engagements you will interact right across our organisation, of course with the sales, technical sales, marketing, support in EMEA to present one team to our customers here but also playing your role with our Product, Engineering, R&D teams, and the wider Confluent Community to ensure that we build products that deliver beyond customer expectations. To really succeed you will build relationships and engage throughout the company.

As we are growing so fast and creating new lines of business you will be presented with opportunities to grow your role at speed, you will of course need energy and focus but also the ability to think on your feet and operate in a fluid team environment to ensure we have the right people working on the right projects.

In order to hit the ground running when the ground is already moving fast you will need to bring your experience of building complex distributed solutions for Enterprises. Whilst we would love you to have 10 years experience delivering Kafka solutions we do live in the real world so your expertise will probably be in complex databases, messaging, stream processing, or enterprise data integration. You will also need to know your way around datacentre and hyperscaler infrastructure without a map, we don’t expect you to dive into the Linux Kernel but you need to know where it is.
