President at Confluent, Erica Schultz: Cashing in on Your Currency


When Confluent’s President of Field Ops Erica Schultz was 23, she was working at Oracle and cold-emailed the manager of the Argentina office, asking to work for him. This experience would open the door to opportunities in Buenos Aires and Miami, a time in Erica’s life she does not take for granted. As a leader today, she hopes to pass on this sentiment, constantly looking for individuals worth taking a chance on: “As I look around my organization, I think, OK, who’s the undiscovered not-yet-fully-realized talent that we should think about for this role?”In this episode, Erica and Joubin talk about why Buenos Aires, Argentina is the best city in the world; the lessons she learned from her father and what changed for her after he died of a rare form of cancer at age 54; her stints at Oracle, LivePerson, and New Relic; the importance of earning responsibility as you advance in your career; staying both humble and paranoid; and the importance of what Confluent is doing in the ever-changing digital infrastructure business.In this episode, we cover: The incredible influence of Erica’s namesake, her father, who passed away as her career was taking off (09:28) “The impact we leave is the impact we have on people” (15:21) How Erica became the captain of the Dartmouth rowing team after being cut from the swim team (18:03) Developing leaders from within a high-growth organization, and earning responsibility (31:36) Why Erica left a CRO role at LivePerson to work for the CRO of New Relic (37:03) Why she had her team at New Relic read “The Boys in the Boat” by Daniel James Brown, and loves the story of runner Roger Bannister (41:34) Being humbled by a changing competitive landscape, and the transformation of the digital infrastructure world (44:17) Real-time data and why both businesses and consumers increasingly need companies like Confluent (49:19) What Erica thought when she first met Confluent’s founder CEO Jay Kreps (56:03) How to transition from operator to executive to board member (59:14) Links: Connect with EricaLinkedIn Connect with Joubin Twitter LinkedIn Email: grit@kleinerperkins.com Learn more about Kleiner Perkins

Forgotten Home with Erica Schultz

Play Comics

Some of my favorite stories are the ones where I’m plopped into a new world and have to figure things out with the characters. Ones where you’re not spoon fed all the information and get exposition that makes sense or have it outside of the story itself (ie footnotes or something). And putting it with a story about extended wars from other worlds and people trying to escape so their family doesn’t get caught up in it without an escape? Yeah go ahead and sign me up for that. Erica Schultz has that part of writing down. Which is really good because it means I can get lost in the story of Forgotten Home and not distracted by stupid exposition that you know wouldn’t actually happen in real life. Plus, and I say this totally seriously, possibly some of the best advice I’ve been given yet about how to get into comics. Learn such things as: The most pragmatic “how to get into comics” answer that I’ve ever gotten. Leaving some mystery for your readers so they can’t just guess what’s going to happen. Being flexible with your writing so you can adapt as things come up. And so much more!
