Help us build a better Internet


About Us

At Cloudflare, we have our eyes set on an ambitious goal: to help build a better Internet. Today, Cloudflare runs one of the world’s largest distributed networks that powers more than 10 trillion requests per month, which is nearly 10 percent of all Internet requests worldwide. Cloudflare protects and accelerates any Internet application online without adding hardware, installing software, or changing a line of code.

Our customers range from Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits to small businesses and budding entrepreneurs. We are working to create a faster, more secure, and more reliable experience for anyone online and given the scale at which we operate, our mission is big. Our team is hard at work shaping the future of the Internet by solving some of its toughest challenges. 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 have growing front-end needs, so we’re looking for highly motivated individuals that are excited to join product teams and work with product owners, designers, and systems engineers to build (and rebuild, in some cases) new and 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 a great design is at the heart of any successful product and 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 are in the midst of migrating our front-end application from Backbone to React, maintain a suite of common components published on npm, and build/package with Webpack. Other technologies we use include Redux, Fela, Jest, Enzyme, Puppeteer, D3, PHP & Go (API layer), Docker, Salt, Postgres, and more. 

Examples of desirable skills, knowledge and experience

  • BA/BS in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Minimum of 2+ years experience building product
  • Strong knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Strong knowledge of React.js
  • Experience writing reusable/modular code and JS frameworks
  • Track record of building great interfaces and being detail oriented
  • Ability to work in cross-functional teams
  • Willingness to dive deep and understand product internals
  • Excellent debugging skills
  • Unit/integration testing experience

Bonus Points

  • Experience with PHP, Go, or Postgres
  • History of building products in complex systems
  • Knowledgeable in one or more of the following areas:
  • Layers 4-7 of the OSI Model
    • DNS
    • Billing Systems
    • Access Control & User Permission Systems

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.

Project Athenian: 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 policy and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.

Sound like something you’d like to be a part of? We’d love to hear from you!

Cloudflare hires the best people based on an evaluation of their abilities and effectiveness. We don't discriminate against employees on the basis of any other personal characteristic or any classification protected by federal, state or local law.
