Product Manager, Confluent Cloud Marketplaces & Partnerships
Employment Type: Full-Time
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 Coatue Management, Altimeter Capital and Franklin Templeton to join earlier investors Sequoia Capital, Benchmark, and Index Ventures in the recent Series E financing of a combined $250 million at a $4.5B valuation. Our product has been adopted by Fortune 100 customers across all industries, and we're being led by the best in the space-our founders were the original creators of Apache Kafka®. We're looking for talented and amazing team players who want to accelerate our growth, while doing some of the best work of their careers. Join us as we build the next transformative technology platform!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 amazing for developers to use with 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. We've taken the first step by integrating with the cloud provider marketplaces, but there's so much more we can do: identity + access control, monitoring, cost tracking and resource tagging, even integrating Confluent Cloud directly into the cloud provider consoles, plus integrating with other software vendors like MongoDB, Snowflake, and others. We hope you'll join us and help discover even more opportunities.This role involves constant interaction with our cloud infrastructure partners (AWS, GCP, Azure), and staying on top of differences across the various cloud provider services while trying to maintain a consistent experience for our customers.
