Responsibilities

We are looking for a highly skilled and self-motivated Technical Project Manager with excellent communication skills who thrives on solving challenges to join our team. You will work with a team of talented engineers who are building innovative products that touch billions of web requests each day.  

Your main role will be to work with the team to plan, manage, execute, and track projects to successful completion. In this role, you will play an active part in planning projects and be responsible for tracking dependencies, schedules and raising issues and risks.

You bring a passion for matching up business needs with building technically innovative solutions, and excel at shifting between the two—understanding how big-picture goals inform technical details, and vice-versa. You are able to implement and drive process and persistently make progress.  

The ideal candidate is flexible and comfortable in playing multiple roles (diplomat, negotiator, reporter, coach, etc) and are able to adapt to changing situations.


Requirements

  • 4+ years experience in project management.
  • Solid foundation in software development, with keen interest in working with technical operations, data structures, software design, and building large, distributed systems
  • Proven track record on creating realistic project plans, and overseeing execution to meet commitments and deliver with predictability
  • Excellent oral and written communication.
  • Experience working with multiple time zones and multiple cross functional teams
  • Strong competency with project management tools (Confluence, JIRA) and various development methodologies (Agile, Waterfall, Kaizen, Scrum, etc).  
  • Comfortable managing projects with tight deadlines and various release cycles
  • This role is based in our San Francisco office.

 

Bonus Points

  • Familiarity working on Operational projects, such as datacenter migration, database systems, Internet performance, and/or Internet security
  • Thrive in a fast-paced iterative engineering environment, and embrace creating paths where none existed before

 

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 is a security company. A successful background check is required for employment.

 

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.
