  • Deliver materials that clearly articulate Confluent’s value to a variety of personas (architects, developers, operators, execs) based on their understanding and awareness of Kafka, Flink, and data streaming  
  • Partner with design and production teams to deliver compelling, high-production value events that inform and delight our customers  
  • Provide guidance to marketing and content teams that are driving derivative assets from the key narratives you will drive  
  • Contribute to strategic initiatives within marketing, like new branding efforts, new product launches, and more  

What You Will Bring:       

  • 10+ years of product and/or technical marketing experience with specific experience building compelling, high-production value keynote content 
  • Proven track record of working directly with C-Suite/senior leadership team members to create and refine materials 
  • Exceptionally strong communication skills, with an understanding of how to create a consistent narrative that works at different technical altitudes (developers and architects through to executives and press)
