If it’s a game changing product or a feature, everything we build impacts the performance, security, and reliability of the Internet for our 5.5 Million customers.
You would be the product manager for Cloudflare’s first authentication and identity management product, bringing authentication to the edge network.You would help us build and define products to help companies bring their on-premise solutions to the cloud, businesses secure that everyone who accesses their network is who they say they are, and developers offload API and website authentication to Cloudflare. You’d work closely with an independent team of engineers to find solutions to make applications on the Internet faster and secured.
We are looking for a Product Manager to manage Cloudflare’s first authentication and identity product line. Come work with a group of passionate, talented engineers that will be creating innovative products that touch 7% of web requests each day.

You will work closely with our engineering team, as well as our customer support, sales and marketing team. This role will span all lifecycles of a product from idea to execution, and you will continuously improve systems, processes and production.
In this role you will be responsible for launching new authentication products that leverage the platform. Responsibilities include engaging with customers, prospects and partners to identify market needs and opportunities, helping to define the product vision, working closely with engineering, sales, marketing and support to build and release the product and ensuring revenue and customer satisfaction goals are met.
You will develop use cases documenting specific real-world product application and extrapolate detailed product requirements for the scenarios. You will run beta and pilot programs with early-stage products and major features. You will collect and measure key product metrics to inform success and failure of each release and plan iterations accordingly. You will work closely with the engineering team to deliver the product in a timely manner. In short, this role is the core of building great products.

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.
