At Confluent, we're creating a category that transforms how every company manages and streams data. Have you ever found a new favorite series on Netflix, picked up groceries curbside at Walmart, or paid for something using Square? That's Confluent in action-giving our customers instant access to massive amounts of real-time data, enabling them to thrive in an ever-changing digital world. As one of the fastest-growing enterprise companies in history, and with Fortune 100 customers across major industries, we have a tremendous opportunity in front of us. We also have experience on our side. Our leaders have taken companies of our size to major success before and include some of the original creators of Apache Kafka.

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 unlimited potential. Chart your own path and take healthy risks with the backing and support of our #OneTeam culture.

Grow as we grow-whether you're just starting out or managing a large team, you'll be amazed at the magnitude of your impact.

We are looking for a Frontend Software Engineer interested in building engaging and insightful products for managing and visualizing large scale distributed real-time data streams.
