Care.com Accelerates Time to Market and Improves Customer Experience with Confluent

An online marketplace for a range of care services including childcare, senior care, tutoring, pet care, and housekeeping with millions of members across 20 countries, Care.com was in need of a much simpler, unified IT architecture to be able to streamline go-to-market initiatives and pivot quickly and effectively with the ever-changing needs of its customers and the marketplace in general.

To accomplish this architectural transformation, the company began building a new platform—the Bravo Platform—that could seamlessly scale with its changing data needs while taking a more agile, granular, and nuanced approach to data security. The company was already using Confluent Platform but chose to transition to Confluent Cloud to power the Bravo Platform and achieve its goal of unifying a series of monolithic architectures into a single, agile platform that could accelerate Care.com on its stated mission of being a one-stop shop for families of all types to meet all of their care needs.

Challenge

Integrate a collection of large, monolithic systems into a single platform that accelerates time to market and improves the overall customer experience.

Solution

Leverage the scalability and reliability of Confluent Cloud to reduce the operational burden of managing the core infrastructure.

Results

  • Increased operational agility and time to market
  • Devops time-saving
  • Better scalability
  • Enhanced security
