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 an Engineering Manager to join our Data Engineering Team in London. You will lead a team of passionate, talented engineers that are building the infrastructure that reliably processes 6 million logs per second, totalling almost 1 petabyte a day. In this role, you will introduce tools and processes to make our engineer’s lives better. You will play an active part in shaping product strategy based on what’s technically possible. You will make sure our company hits our ambitious goals from an engineering standpoint.

You bring a passion for meeting 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 thrive in a fast-paced iterative engineering environment and have experience delivering scalable distributed systems. Most importantly, you will have a track record of having past teams respect you as both a technical leader and manager.

Requirements

  • 2+ years experience in engineering management

  • Experience architecting and building large-scale distributed stream processing systems

  • Experience administering, operating, and optimizing relational/columnar/document databases and data warehouses

  • Experience building large scale ETL pipelines

  • Solid foundation in computer science, with strong competencies in algorithms, data structures, and software design

  • Comfortable using and administering Linux systems

  • Excel at planning, creating teams and overseeing execution to meet commitments and deliver with predictability

  • Demonstrate a track record of managing a team including hiring, on-boarding, and professional development. You inspire your team to reach higher. You’re as good as explaining “why” as you are “how”

  • Experience implementing tools, process, internal instrumentation, methodologies and resolving blockages

  • Comfortable managing teams/projects with tight deadlines and short release cycles

Bonus Points

  • Experience building Golang-based applications
  • Experience building analytics APIs
  • Experience with containerized/virtualized applications

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.
