Confluent is one of the fastest growing startups in Silicon Valley. Founded by the team that built Apache Kafka, Confluent provides a streaming platform that enables companies to easily access data as real-time streams. In addition to our enterprise platform, we recently launched our cloud offering, Apache Kafka as a Service, which will allow companies of all sizes to leverage the power of streaming data.

Confluent recently closed $50 million in funding at our series C with investors such as Sequoia, Benchmark and Index Ventures. In 2016, we tripled our headcount, opened an office in the UK, signed over 100 partners and hired our go to market team.
