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.
About the RoleAs a Staff Product Manager for Developer Content, you’ll own one of the most comprehensive and innovative products for developer learning on the internet. The role itself is a hybrid between product management and developer advocacy. In it, you will define the vision for Confluent Developer, prioritize its roadmap, liaise with internal partners over content, optimize the site to the benefit of developers while meeting key business metrics, and take the product through the company’s quarterly product planning process as a 1st class product. You’ll also manage internal relationships with training, docs, marketing, and product learning teams.

What you'll do

  • Build and maintain a roadmap and vision document that defines the future state of the Confluent Developer product
  • Research the state of the art in docs, training, and developer content, disseminating this research to the wider organization as well as incorporating ideas from it into your own plans
  • As content is created, provide feedback and nurture delivery to ensure that the quality of web, video, and written content is maximized. You will regularly take part in implementation meetings to provide feedback on critical decisions in the product
  • Present new product proposals to the product organization and executive team as they are formulated
  • Own and nurture the team’s product relationships, both those that depend on us (Customer Solutions, In-Product Learning, Marketing) and those we depend on (web development, video production, etc.)
  • Where possible, contribute your own content too! 

What we're looking for

  • Experience producing world-class developer content, ideally for cloud-based services
  • Ability to build and manage relationships with dependent teams and manage an ongoing product relationship
  • Experience managing a backlog backed by user stories and customer research
  • 3+ years of experience as a product owner or senior contributor in developer relations
  • Exceptional written and presentation skills. At Confluent we rely heavily on documents to explain the vision and facilitate concrete communication
  • A deep understanding of the developer process, what makes developers happy, and how people learn and grow a technical career
  • Empathy for all disciplines of a growing enterprise technology company including engineering, sales, marketing, and business development
