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.
About the Role
Confluent is going places. We want software engineers to join us on this journey as participants and beneficiaries as we put data in motion. So, what role does our team play at Confluent, and how can you help?
Our team focuses on adding resiliency to Confluent Cloud by adding scalability to our systems and processes. Our responsibilities cut across the organization where we gain knowledge in both breadth and depth of the inner workings. Our goal is to help teams spend time in building features for our customers rather than in manual processes or operational toil. We build and partner in managing the critical infrastructure they need to make their services reliable, available, and durable (in short... resilient).
Our engineers work with large-scale distributed systems with a focus on codifying infrastructure, making self-healing systems, and automating everything (where possible). We are passionate about reducing downtime, incidents, and toil, and that passion makes us experts in these areas.
