Confluent is an infrastructure company founded and led by the original authors and thought leaders behind Apache Kafka. We are building an open-source enterprise-class stream data platform for real-time stream processing centered around Kafka. Our mission is to put it at the heart of every company.

The next big goal for Confluent is to make it as easy as possible for anyone to use Confluent’s products, including Kafka, to build their next killer streaming application. To do that we are building the Confluent Cloud which provides our products as a service in all the major public clouds. We are at the beginning of this engineering journey and are looking for great engineers to come join the world class team of engineers that are passionate about building and running large scale, multi-tenant distributed data systems for customers that expect a very high level of availability.
