About Us

At Cloudflare, we have our eyes set on an ambitious goal: to help build a better Internet. Today the company runs one of the world’s largest networks that powers trillions of requests per month. Cloudflare protects and accelerates any Internet application online without adding hardware, installing software, or changing a line of code. Internet properties powered by Cloudflare have all web traffic routed through its intelligent global network, which gets smarter with every request. As a result, they see significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks. Cloudflare was recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Company Cultures list.

We realize people do not fit into neat boxes. We are looking for curious and empathetic individuals who are committed to developing themselves and learning new skills, and we are ready to help you do that. We cannot complete our mission without building a diverse and inclusive team. We hire the best people based on an evaluation of their potential and support them throughout their time at Cloudflare. Come join us!  


About the department

The Infrastructure team is responsible for growing Cloudflare’s global technological footprint, from designing and shipping next-generation servers to building relationships with global ISPs. Business Operations is a small team that supports all facets of that growth. We are an interdisciplinary team whose work involves operational planning, building and improving upon systems, and special projects across product, finance, supply chain, and network operations. Our work connects people and processes, strategy to plans, and insights into actions that ultimately impact the internet at large.


About the role

High-growth companies tend to evolve quickly as they grow, so we are looking for talented individuals who thrive in a fast-paced environment and crave ambiguous problems. This role contributes to shaping the direction of our growth and positioning the Infrastructure organization to scale successfully, as well as fill important gaps in the business as they arise. Responsibilities will include:

  • Performing analyses and modeling for infrastructure utilization, costs, and gross margin optimization
  • Setting up, refining, and automating internal processes
  • Creating organized data flows and delivering novel analyses on infrastructural operational levers
  • Budget structuring and forecasting, e.g. for hardware, data centers, and bandwidth
  • Technical project management: Identifying, prioritizing, and leading follow-through on various simultaneous projects

Examples of desirable skills, knowledge and experience 

  • Structured thinker with demonstrated ability to tell stories with data and deliver thorough recommendations
  • Technically inclined with outstanding modeling skills in Excel and the ability to work with SQL or Python, as well as a solid foundation in financial valuation
  • Basic understanding of how the Internet works on a physical and theoretical level, e.g., TCP/IP, DNS, BGP, peering, transit, transport, and content proxy caching
  • Detail-oriented, curious, and a humble personality that is willing to work on both strategic and tactical projects
  • Excellent communication skills; the ability to articulate and distill nuanced contractual, technical, financial, and value points to a diverse range of people both in formal settings and quick emails
  • 2-5 years experience at a top-tier management consulting firm, investing firm, and/or experience on a Product, Business Operations, or Internal Strategy team at a technology company
  • Strong collaborator with a high level of personal integrity
  • Self-directed and self-motivated

What Makes Cloudflare 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.

Project Galileo: We equip politically and artistically important organizations and journalists with powerful tools to defend themselves against attacks that would otherwise censor their work, technology already used by Cloudflare’s enterprise customers--at no cost.

Athenian Project: We created Athenian Project to ensure that state and local governments have the highest level of protection and reliability for free, so that their constituents have access to election information and voter registration.

Path Forward Partnership: Since 2016, we have partnered with Path Forward, a nonprofit organization, to create 16-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.

1.1.1.1: We released 1.1.1.1 to help fix the foundation of the Internet by building a faster, more secure and privacy-centric public DNS resolver. This is available publicly for everyone to use - it is the first consumer-focused service Cloudflare has ever released. Here’s the deal - we don’t store client IP addresses never, ever. We will continue to abide by our privacy policy and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.
