Job Description

About Us:

At CloudFlare, we have our eyes set on an ambitious goal -- to build a better web. We believe that with our talented team, smart technology and engaged users we can solve some of the biggest problems on the web. We already serve more web traffic than Twitter, Bing, Wikipedia, Amazon, Apple, Instagram and Zynga combined. Anytime we push a line of code, it affects over 200 million web surfers overnight. We are still a small team, well-funded, growing quickly and focused on building a world-class company.


We are looking for a engineer to join our Platform team. In this role, you will take the CloudFlare App Platform to the next level. Today, over 40 apps have been developed for the CloudFlare App Platform. Over the course of the next three years, we see that number increasing to thousands. This role is an opportunity to be a platform architect, work with third party developers and sharpen your broad software development skill set.

The ideal candidate will extend the App Platform to make developers' lives easier, and give them more powerful tools to build and improve their creations. You will troubleshoot partner technical issues in real-time and incorporate bugs and requirements back into the overall platform. You will work closely with our internal Platform team, as well as with third party app developers around the world.


  • Write software in a number of languages (PHP, JavaScript, Python) to extend the CloudFlare platform
  • Experience working with databases (PostgreSQL)
  • Deep understanding of the web technology stack (TCP/IP, HTTP, HTML, JS, CSS)
  • Good communication skills
  • Ability to write samples, documentation and other materials to share with the broader ecosystem
  • Proficient in a Unix/Linux environment


We offer competitive salaries, equity, fantastic health benefits plan, a new laptop, monthly CalTrain / BART pass for commuters and the opportunity to work with a smart, motivated team where you will see your contributions make a difference daily. Our sunny offices are based in SOMA in San Francisco, CA.

Sound like somewhere you'd thrive? We'd love to hear from you. Submit your resume and a short paragraph to introduce yourself.
