About the Department
Marketing builds awareness by sharing stories about how using Cloudflare can make a positive impact for customers and prospects. This spans stories across all channels of customer communication: our website, blog, emails, social media, events, ads, etc. We respect the inbox (no spammers!) We tell technical stories. And we see and shape the beauty of a networking story.
Why is working here awesome?
Scale. Not only so we currently process 10% of the internet’s requests, but we’re continuing to grow rapidly. If you want to have a large impact and to work with very talented people, this is the place to do it.
Autonomy. Our team is not dogmatic about a particular language, library or way of doing things. Everything is up for review. If you see a good solution to something, you are empowered to make it happen. We’re looking for someone who is constantly looking to make things better and increase the level of quality we’re delivering as a team.
People. Our team works closely with many other teams in our department; in the hub and spoke model, we’re the hub. We work with engineers on other teams, product marketers, designers, site reliability engineers, our legal team, our co-founders and others. People work hard here and pull together.
Who you are: Our ideal candidate is a senior full-stack development leader with a good mixture of strong frontend and backend skills, experience designing and implementing elegant technical solutions, a passion for DevOps, removing friction from developer workflows, and a desire and ability to own architecture design and for a mixture of existing and upcoming projects that are at the core of our brand identity.
You’ve previously been a key team member of a fast-moving, diverse team comprised of non-technical stakeholders, engineers and designers and want to work hard with smart and talented people every day.
You are comfortable being the point person on new greenfield projects and designing scalable solutions that satisfy all stakeholder requirements, as well as leading major projects that need to evolve to meet new business goals.
What you’ll do: You will work closely with your team to develop solutions, plan them out, articulate them and their underlying considerations clearly in high quality documentation that includes architectural diagrams and wireframes as appropriate. Once the planning phase is complete, you will spearhead the execution while effectively leveraging your engineering team to deliver results on time.
Strong proficiency with the following technologies are absolutely required:
- HTML 5
- CSS 3
- Experience with responsive web development
- Understanding of SEO best practices
- Understanding of Google Analytics
- Experience with A/B testing (Optimizely, Google Optimize)
- Experience working in an Agile work environment (Scrum, Kanban)
This is an ideal position for a senior engineer who wants to transition into leading and managing a high-impact team that processes requests for every other team in the department, as well as for a seasoned engineering leader who wants to contribute their technical skills and ability to accelerate everyone around them.
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.
