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.
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.

About the Department
Account Executives, Business Development Representatives, Solution Engineers, Customer Success, and Sales Operations - all working together help our customers adopt Cloudflare and create great Internet-enabled experiences.
The sales team at Cloudflare helps customers solve real, technical problems while creating the revenue streams that help the company provide free service to millions in our community.
What you'll do
You will work closely with our Enterprise customers to ensure their success on the Cloudflare platform. Responsibilities will include: onboarding new customers, developing technical documentation on Cloudflare’s architecture/feature set, light programming work, and developing a deep expertise in Cloudflare’s technology, and being a subject matter expert on web/mobile security and performance: for example performing log analysis of HTTP/S traffic and developing web application firewall rules.
As a Solutions Engineer, you will utilize your technical expertise to ensure customer happiness. It's important to note this role is both pre and post sales. You must have the personal skills to effectively sell Cloudflare and the technical skills to do the implementation. The mix is roughly half pre-sales and half post-sales.
We need leaders who can both manage enterprise customers but who can also operate technically and make sure our largest customers are set up properly.
As a Solutions Engineer, you will have the opportunity to create and scale solutions that help our customers realize the full promise of Cloudflare.

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.
