Public Cloud Engagement Manager (Remote)


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.

The Confluent Public Cloud Engagement Manager is part of the team assigned to AWS on a global basis.  This position is responsible for providing leadership, management, and strategy for the sell with/go-to-market engagement and all joint activities with AWS.  The Engagement Manager will have a myriad of different responsibilities to ensure leverage and consistent engagement with AWS to drive customer engagements, qualified pipeline, and cloud bookings that meet and exceed quota and expectations.  The Engagement Manager will be part of the team that coordinates Confluent sales activities and will be a central conduit for engagement management between the Confluent’s sales organization and AWS.  The Public Cloud Engagement Manager will report to the Director of AWS Alliance but will have several dotted line coordination requirements for consistent communication and engagement with Business Development, Marketing, Channels, Inside Sales, and Product Marketing/Development.  You will be a knowledge expert on all aspects of AWS and will be asked to present at QBRs, executive meetings, training, and events.
The Public Cloud Engagement Manager role is highly strategic to the company and the Public Cloud initiative in regards to strategy, influence, and execution.  The Engagement Manager is required to contribute to the larger Confluent’s Public Cloud strategy outside of their day-to-day activities and will be called upon for their subject matter expertise in training, QBRs, enablement, and other engagement activities.  It is expected that the Cloud Engagement manager has consistent interaction and engagement with customers, strategic vendors, channel partners and other third parties in support of the “sell with” activities with AWS.  The Engagement Manager will demonstrate a deep understanding of AWS go-to-market strategies including but not limited to co-selling, strategic planning and goal setting, channel programs, marketing campaigns and programs, strategic events, and funnel management.  Since this is a global role, the Public Cloud Engagement manager must be able to manage activities on a worldwide scale with sufficient attention to all four theaters.
