Title: Technical Trainer
Date Posted: 2017-09-06
Location: United States
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.

Confluent technical trainers are often the first point of contact customers have with the company. As a member of this team, you are the sort of person who is comfortable explaining highly complex subjects to people with clarity, patience, and empathy. You are just as passionate about teaching open-source and proprietary products to your students. You have experience teaching courses to groups large and small, in public venues and on-site with clients. Nothing makes you happier than connecting with a room full of people and creating an environment in which they are able to learn and master exciting new things. You are US-based, but you're okay traveling up to 75% of the time.

Experience We Are Looking For:

- You're a good Java programmer and a decent Linux admin
- You have amazing presentation skills
- You have experience teaching technical topics to small and large groups
- You always want to learn new technology, and you have a real drive to help other people understand it

Skills That Give You an Edge:

- You know Apache Kafka
- You have previous experience teaching open source technologies
- You understand large-scale distributed systems
- You have experience creating training materials

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.
