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.
- Selling solutions that fundamentally change how organisations structure their business is not easy.
Are you interested in taking the most modern technology out there and building solutions that are not only about enabling your customers to keep up with the competition but taking paradigm leaps for their business?
Could you drive the technical discussion of a complex real-time data stream sales process whilst simultaneously articulating the new business opportunities the technology can bring to senior leaders?
If you have the technical know-how and the wits to communicate all this to a wide audience then the Confluent Pre-Sales team could be the place you can utilise all your skills and passion.
What we’re looking for:
- In order to hit the fast-moving ground running, you will need to bring the experience of creating complex distributed solutions at enterprise scale and a thorough knowledge of cutting edge data infrastructure solutions.
- As you will be a key player in selling the value of our platform and the new business use cases you will be experienced in dealing with customers, through engagingly presenting to enterprise architects and C-level executives alike and deftly handling objections while influencing key decision-makers.
- Your technical expertise will almost certainly be in infrastructure software like databases, message queues, SaaS, microservices or Big Data products. An affinity with opensource is also a given. As you will be working with our customer to architect the right solution you must be conversant in programming languages (Java, Python etc) through to data pipelines and the surrounding eco systems.
- As you will be interacting daily with our product teams an ability to clearly define customer requirements and the communication and relationship building skills to drive internal development projects will be second nature to you.
