Dubbed an "open-source unicorn" by Forbes, Confluent is the fastest-growing enterprise subscription company our investors have ever seen. And how are we growing so fast? By pioneering a new technology category with an event streaming platform, which enables companies to leverage their data as a continually updating stream of events, not as static snapshots. This innovation has led Sequoia Capital, Benchmark, & Index Ventures to recently invest a combined $125 million in our Series D financing. Our product has been adopted by Fortune 100 customers across all industries, & we're being led by the best in the space-our founders were the original creators of Apache Kafka. We're looking for talented & amazing team players who want to accelerate our growth, while doing some of the best work in their career. Join us as we build the next transformative technology platform!
We are looking for a Consulting Engineer to join our Customer Success team. As a Consulting Engineer, you will help customers extract business value from their real-time data streams.
In this role, you will interact directly with customers, contributing to implementation during any or all phases of the application lifecycle - portfolio assessment, application planning & design, deployment architectures, development & build, integration & release configuration, system testing, production operations, application optimization, & best practices adoption.
To do this, you will provide software, development, & operations expertise that leverages your deep knowledge of best practices in the use of Apache Kafka, the Confluent platform, & complementary systems such as Hadoop, Spark, Storm, relational & NoSQL databases.
Throughout these interactions, you will build strong relationships with your customers & ensure exemplary delivery standards. You will also have the opportunity to build state-of-the-art streaming data infrastructure, in partnership with colleagues who are widely recognized as industry leaders.
In addition, promoting Confluent & our amazing team to a public audience is something we invite all our employees to undertake. This can be in the form of writing blog posts, speaking at meetups & well known industry events about use cases & best practices, or as simple as releasing open-source code.
Although Confluent is headquartered in Palo Alto, you can work remotely from any location on the East Coast of the United States, as long as you are able to travel to client engagements as needed.
What you need to succeed
You will need excellent technical skills & industry experience, since you'll be working with some of the best companies & sharpest minds. Credibility is key. We don't expect you to be a Kafka expert when you join Confluent, but we do want to see some tentpole achievements & skills.
