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 approximately 25 million Internet properties, for customers ranging from individual bloggers to SMBs to Fortune 500 companies. Cloudflare protects and accelerates any Internet application online without adding hardware, installing software, or changing a line of code. Internet properties powered by Cloudflare all have 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 named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Company Cultures list and ranked among the World’s Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company. 

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! 

About the department

Cloudflare’s Engineering Team builds and runs the software that handles about 10% of HTTP requests on the Internet today. We also build and run the internal tools that builds and runs our software. The Engineering Team is split into two groups: one handles product development and the other handles operations. Product development covers both new features and functionality and scaling our existing software to meet the challenges of a massively growing customer base. The operations team handles one of the world’s largest networks with data centers in 102 cities worldwide.

What you'll do

We’re looking to grow our front-end product team with highly motivated individuals who are excited to work with product owners, designers, and systems engineers to build new and, in some cases, rebuild existing products and features. You should have experience working with large-scale JavaScript applications and a track record of building great products. You must care deeply not only about the quality of your and the team's code, but also the product functionality and user experience. 

We believe that great design is at the heart of any successful product. You will work closely with our design/UX team and must be comfortable seeking feedback from non-technical sources. We work iteratively and deploy often (can be several times a day). We build and maintain the Cloudflare Dashboard, a large TypeScript / React application, maintain a suite of common components published on npm, and build/package with Webpack. Other technologies we use include Redux, Fela, GraphQL, Apollo, Jest, Enzyme, Cypress, D3 and more. 

Examples of desirable skills, knowledge and experience

  • Minimum of 2+ years experience building product
  • Strong knowledge of HTML, CSS, and TypeScript
  • Strong knowledge of React.js
  • Experience with JS frameworks and writing reusable/modular code
  • Track record of building great interfaces and being detail oriented
  • Ability to work in cross-functional teams
  • Mentoring other team members to help bring out their best work
  • Willingness to dive deep and understand product internals
  • Excellent debugging skills
  • Unit/integration testing experience

Bonus Points

  • Familiarity building products with design systems
  • Experience working alongside user researchers to build products
  • Proficient in interviewing engineering candidates
  • History of building products in complex systems
  • Knowledge of different parts of the networking stack before (such as DNS, firewalls, etc.)
  • Experience with PHP, Go, or Postgres

 

What Makes Cloudflare 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.

1.1.1.1: We released 1.1.1.1 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 commitment and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.
