Our customers range from Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits to small businesses and budding entrepreneurs. Every day, about 12,000 new customers sign up. We’re 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.

Responsibilities

We are looking for experienced front-end engineers to join our team. The ideal candidates will 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 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.

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. 

Requirements

  • 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

  • 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. In 2014, we launched Project Galileo, an initiative through which we partner with global NGOs to identify websites at risk of attack and provide the same state-of-the-art mitigation technology already used by Cloudflare’s enterprise customers--at no cost. Project Galileo equips politically and artistically important organizations and journalists with powerful tools to defend themselves against attacks that would otherwise censor their work.

Additionally, in 2016, we announced our partnership with Path Forward, a nonprofit organization that works with companies to create 18-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. With the lofty goal of shaping the future of the Internet, we’re focused on recruiting the best and the brightest, no matter what.

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.
