Release Engineer

Confluent

Job description

Dubbed an "open-source unicorn" by Forbes, Confluent is the fastest-growing enterprise subscription company our investors have ever seen. And how are we growing so fast? By pioneering a new technology category with an event streaming platform, which enables companies to leverage their data as a continually updating stream of events, not as static snapshots. This innovation has led Coatue Management, Altimeter Capital and Franklin Templeton to join earlier investors Sequoia Capital, Benchmark, and Index Ventures in the recent Series E financing of a combined $250 million at a $4.5B valuation. Our product has been adopted by Fortune 100 customers across all industries, and we’re being led by the best in the space—our founders were the original creators of Apache Kafka®. We’re looking for talented and amazing team players who want to accelerate our growth, while doing some of the best work of their careers. Join us as we build the next transformative technology platform!

As a Release Engineer at Confluent, you will be working across the entire Confluent Platform helping to place our event streaming platform at the heart of every modern enterprise.  You will enable us to deliver solutions to our customers, wherever they run our software. You will work on automating our release pipelines, driving improvements in our release process, and building tools to improve visibility and efficiency in release delivery.

Who You Are:


  • Smart, humble, and empathetic
  • Have a strong sense of teamwork and put team’s and company’s interests first
  • Driven and excited about challenges of a fast-paced, innovative software startup environment

What We Are Looking For:


  • Experience building and scaling release automation
  • Strong object-oriented programming fundamentals
  • Proficient in a major programming language (e.g. python, java)
  • Strong understanding of Linux and Linux packaging (e.g. .deb, .rpm)
  • Strong understanding of development systems, especially Git and Jenkins
  • Working knowledge of build tools like maven and gradle
  • Experience building and releasing docker images
  • Experience working effectively and driving requirements across teams

What Gives You An Edge:


  • Knowledge of Apache Kafka
  • Previous experience testing open-source products is a plus
