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.

Confluent and Kafka help connect the wide variety of cloud provider services, internal apps, third party services, and everything else modern companies use.  Your job will be to make Confluent Cloud available as a SaaS platform on our cloud infrastructure partners (currently AWS, Azure, and GCP) and other partners (ISVs, channel partners, and more). Success means developers can discover, try, buy, and use Confluent Cloud seamlessly with the wide range of other cloud services they’re already using.

In this role, you will be building marketplace integrations with cloud partners in managing subscription workflows, usage-based reporting, identity and cloud partner product integrations. You will get an opportunity to work on business critical flows from ideation to completion by closely collaborating with Cloud Infrastructure partners, Product Managers, different engineering and business teams. We’ve taken the first step by integrating with the cloud provider marketplaces, but there’s so much more we can do and even integrating Confluent Cloud directly into the cloud provider consoles, plus integrating with other software vendors like MongoDB, Snowflake, and others. Marketplace integrations are a key driver of our business, and you will have an opportunity to make a significant impact to Confluent Cloud. We hope you’ll join us and help discover even more opportunities.
