Product Manager – Confluent Cloud Marketplaces

Job details

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 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. Marketplace integrations are a key driver of our business, and you will have an opportunity to make a significant impact on both the customer experience and Confluent’s bottom line.
    • Set the strategy: Identify opportunities for Confluent Cloud to better serve developers across platforms by executing tried-and-true playbooks and inventing entirely new approaches.
    • Understand our users: Conduct interviews and analyze data to define personas, user journeys, and key jobs to be done.
    • Work across constituencies: Create shared understanding and direction across engineering, product, business development, support, sales, and marketing teams within Confluent and externally with our partners.
    • Be responsible for the whole lifecycle: Drive multi-company, cross-functional initiatives from conception through initial delivery and ongoing iteration after launch.
    • Close the loop: Define quantitative and qualitative targets, measure performance against them, share results with stakeholders, and incorporate those learnings into the next development cycle.
    • Manage complexity: Deliver value while handling the surprises and challenges of a quickly evolving product, ambitious partnership targets, and a rapidly growing organization.
What We’re Looking For:
    • 3+ years of software product management experience
    • Demonstrated ability to drive business outcomes through product changes
    • Experience with partnerships, SaaS, developer tools, and/or cloud infrastructure products and services
    • Hands-on experience with Azure / AWS / GCP
Come As You Are
At Confluent, equality is a core tenet of our culture. We are committed to building an inclusive global team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, beliefs, and experiences. The more diverse we are, the richer our community and the broader our impact.
Confluent requires all employees (in office and remote) in the U.S. to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Consistent with federal, state, and local requirements, Confluent will consider requests for reasonable accommodation based on medical conditions/contraindications or sincerely-held religious beliefs where it is able to do so without undue hardship to the company.
