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 & win in a digital-first world.
We're looking for self-motivated team members who crave a challenge & feel energized to roll up their sleeves & help realize Confluent's enormous potential. Chart your own path & take healthy risks as we solve big problems together. We value having diverse teams & 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.
About the role:
Developers sit in the heart of Confluent's DNA, with the whole company being heavily influenced by our open source roots. The Developer Relations function is in many ways the personification of this. As a result, it enjoys an elevated position in the organization, reporting directly to the Office of the CTO.
As Head of Developer Relations, you will be directly responsible for our Developer Advocate, Integration Architecture, & Technologist teams & all developer-facing thought-leading content.
We are looking for a leader who can build & grow this team to create the world's number 1 developer-focussed learning & thought leadership function. This team will be responsible for building our developer portal at developer.confluent.io, creating content watched by hundreds of thousands of developers, & supporting the Apache Kafka & Confluent developer communities as they grow.
The role will involve direct line management responsibilities for these teams, planning & executing key initiatives, interfacing with other parts of the organization, & ensuring that the teams work efficiently, with clear commitments & targets.
What sort of person are you?
You're likely to be leading either a developer relation or engineering team & applying your understanding of software, people, organizations, & products to solve the big problems faced in software delivery. You're likely to have developer advocacy experience yourself, speaking, writing, & engaging with the developer community & with a deep understanding of open source technology & how developers think.
