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. Join us on our mission to put a streaming platform at the heart of every company.

As a Developer Evangelist for Confluent, you get to help users of Apache Kafka and Confluent technologies be successful and feel awesome doing it. You'll meet directly with the community of developers, engineers, and distributed systems enthusiasts around the world, teaching them and inspiring them to apply streaming technologies more effectively. You'll write sample code, build and deliver conference talks, speak at meetups, make screencasts, and write some of the best blog posts the streaming data world has ever seen. You're willing to travel 50-75% of the time, you're eager to be part of a diverse team with big goals, and you have an unremittingly positive attitude.

What We're Looking For:

- A seasoned software developer
- Someone who is a fun, confident speaker at conferences and meetups
- Has the ability to create your own material and present from standard decks
- Great writer, and can write winsome, on-brand technical blog posts
- Demonstrates the ability to record screencasts and instructional videos of your talks and articles
- A great classroom trainer willing to pitch in with paid classroom training using our standard curriculum
- Experience writing top-quality code samples and mini applications to demonstrate the technologies you want to teach
- Eager to explain how the open-source projects and Confluent's commercial offerings are different

Skills That Give You an Edge:

- Strong JVM language programmer (Java or Scala preferred)
- Up to date with current JVM-community engineering practices
- Familiar with distributed systems, maybe even Kafka
- You constantly keep up to date on the latest technologies related to Confluent, streaming data, and distributed systems

At Confluent, we value working with smart, humble and empathetic people across every team. Our goal is to remove any obstacles for our teams and individuals, allowing you to do the best work of your life.

To help you do that, our benefits include: generous vacation policy, comprehensive medical, dental, vision and life insurance coverage based on your location, a monthly fitness allowance and free lunch and munchies.
