Product Manager - Intern (Summer 2021) at Cloudflare
We are looking for Product Manager interns to join our Product Management and Emerging Technology & Incubation teams.
The Product Management team at Cloudflare sits at the intersection of software development, design, and business strategy. We shape high-level product goals but also get our hands dirty. We have ultimate responsibility for understanding our client needs, influencing business strategy, feature specification, and working with engineering to develop our software. Cloudflare customers range from individual consumers to large multinational corporations and they use a wide range of products that help them make their sites and apps faster and more secure.
The Emerging Technology & Incubation team is where new, bold, products are built and released within Cloudflare. Rather than being constrained by the structures which make Cloudflare a massively successful business, we are able to leverage them to deliver entirely new tools and products to our customers. Cloudflare’s edge and network make it possible to solve problems at massive scale and efficiency which would be impossible for almost any other organization. At any given moment Product Strategy is engaged in a half dozen projects, each driven by a small technical team of just a handful of developers.
About the internship program
Interns at Cloudflare get to explore and work with some of the newest and most innovative advances in security, networking and performance. You will work closely with Software Engineers and designers to discover, invent, and build at the largest scale. You will be exploring challenges in data mining, machine learning, privacy and security, networking, storage, data management, and much more. You will be working in a fast-paced environment where you will be expected to take ownership of one or multiple features or products.
PMs at Cloudflare are very technical. You will need a background in engineering, computer science, mathematics or statistics and are looking to explore a role that is very customer and business focussed. You enjoy wearing multiple hats and have an entrepreneurial mindset.
Aside from working on impactful projects, you will network and meet with our executives including our co-founders. All interns are paired with a mentor on the team to ramp up quickly and also with a buddy to connect with other folks across the company. Interns will present on their project to the company at the end of the summer.
Depending on the COVID-19 situation in summer 2021, our internship will be remote or located in our San Francisco, Austin, Champaign, Kirkland, London, or Lisbon offices.

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.
220.127.116.11: We released 18.104.22.168 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 commitment and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.
