About Us

At Cloudflare, we have our eyes set on an ambitious goal: to help build a better Internet. Today the company runs one of the world’s largest networks that powers trillions of requests per month. Cloudflare protects and accelerates any Internet application online without adding hardware, installing software, or changing a line of code. Internet properties powered by Cloudflare have all web traffic routed through its intelligent global network, which gets smarter with every request. As a result, they see significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks. Cloudflare was recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Company Cultures list.

We realize people do not fit into neat boxes. We are looking for curious and empathetic individuals who are committed to developing themselves and learning new skills, and we are ready to help you do that. We cannot complete our mission without building a diverse and inclusive team. We hire the best people based on an evaluation of their potential and support them throughout their time at Cloudflare. Come join us!  

What You Would Do Here:

Cloudflare is growing our People & Places team. Our focus is getting the best people to work at Cloudflare and then allowing them to do their best work. As we continue to build out our People team, we are looking for a trusted partner to help drive large scale system solutions that make the People team and our partners more efficient, effective and productive.  We are in the early stages of building out system infrastructure that will help Cloudflare scale thoughtfully and this is a great opportunity to shape the strategic direction of our tools roadmap and see a tremendous amount of impact from your work.  

You will work very closely with our entire People team and our cross functional partners to understand business needs and design/implement solutions that help us reach functional and strategic goals.  You will figure out how to get the most out of our existing systems (primarily Workday but other tools as well), identify gaps and ensure your solutions are fully adopted and effective. This role requires an ability to design technical solutions (coding ability a strong plus) but also speak plainly and in non-technical terms with business users.  Reporting to the Head of People Systems and Operations, you must partner effectively with all levels of the organization, lead others, drive results, proactively identify and resolve problems, and make challenging decisions. 


Who You Are:

Motivated by innovation and creating a world class employee tools experience, you have been drawn to or served on a People/HR team at some point in your 8+ years of work experience. You are able to think both strategically and tactically to design and execute on a systems strategy that will transform how the HR team works.  You are familiar with a wide variety of people systems and data tools, but have enough grit to start with the basics in Excel and/or Google docs. You may even have coding ability and like to build applications in your spare time. You have an entrepreneurial spirit and are always looking for ways to innovate. You understand business logic across systems and are able to lead implementations of new system integrations and troubleshoot issues with existing integrations.  You are comfortable juggling multiple complex projects at once and context switching with ease throughout the day. You have a collaborative approach and enjoy sharing knowledge and teaching others. You approach problems with a growth mindset and are naturally curious to learn more and try new things. You enjoy ideating with peers about both short and long term goals and thinking outside the box to create best in class solutions that are uniquely suited to Cloudflare’s needs.


  • Provide functional and technical expertise for Workday, Greenhouse and any future People technology systems, including business process configuration, report development, integration design and configuration, and data management.
  • Recommend business process improvements to better prepare the company for scale and growth and be inventive in a dynamic work environment.
  • Maintain existing system integrations and lead the implementation of new integrations.  Partner with integration developers on all phases of deployment and troubleshooting.
  • Drive change management for tools and solutions you are delivering.
  • Lead large, global implementations of either new systems or new functionality within existing systems.  Own entire process from requirements gathering, documentation, testing strategy and execution, communication/change management, and ensure highest level of adoption as new system features or functional areas are rolled out.
  • Boost team productivity with simple custom solutions with google app script, R script, or any other coding language you may be familiar with.

What Makes Us Special:

We’re not just a highly ambitious, large-scale technology company. We’re a highly ambitious, large-scale technology company with a soul. Fundamental to our mission to help build a better Internet is protecting the free and open Internet.

Project Galileo: We equip politically and artistically important organizations and journalists with powerful tools to defend themselves against attacks that would otherwise censor their work, technology already used by Cloudflare’s enterprise customers--at no cost.

Athenian Project: We created Athenian Project to ensure that state and local governments have the highest level of protection and reliability for free, so that their constituents have access to election information and voter registration.

Path Forward Partnership: Since 2016, we have partnered with Path Forward, a nonprofit organization, to create 16-week positions for mid-career professionals who want to get back to the workplace after taking time off to care for a child, parent, or loved one. We released to help fix the foundation of the Internet by building a faster, more secure and privacy-centric public DNS resolver. This is available publicly for everyone to use - it is the first consumer-focused service Cloudflare has ever released. Here’s the deal - we don’t store client IP addresses never, ever. We will continue to abide by our privacy policy and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.
