CloudFlare | https://www.cloudflare.com/ | San Francisco, CA; London, UK; Singapore, SG | VISA, ONSITE

CloudFlare is building a better Internet -- performance and security optimization at the edge. Our long term goal is to give every site the same performance, security, and reliability that major sites like Google and Facebook accomplish, without any specialized network hardware or complicated administration. We enhance over 2 million sites, including this one.

We're hiring for a variety of roles -- started the year at 128 and hope to end around 256, and will be at 175 by the beginning of August. This is a perfect time to join -- product market fit is established, but there's a lot of great engineering, product, sales, and support work to be done. We've publicly said we're profitable and on track for long term success.

You may wish to check out our blog to see the kinds of engineering work we do. (https://blog.cloudflare.com/). https://www.cloudflare.com/join-our-team has a listing of positions.

We're always hiring for operations/SRE, sales, general systems engineering (mostly in Go, nginx, and network, as well as DNS at scale), and web development.

Specific roles we're keen to hire include: 1) Billing engineer -- someone to take the lead as we build a new billing system. 2) VP Engineering -- continuing to build and scale a great engineering team 3) Principal Engineer -- owning the WWW stack which we use for control and administrative functions internally and for customers, and managing a move to a modern microservices model.

We've recently opened a Singapore office and are hiring sales/support/operations personnel there.

A friend of mine told me that he lost contact (ghosting) after a couple of interviews.


Have him email me. We sometimes (depends on the team, hiring manager, etc) get things stuck in the process, even with good candidates. (Someone leaves a note saying "great interview, next he should talk to someone in one-of- the- teams, then it doesn't actually get assigned to someone, and just sits there.)

If we actually set it to "decline" we send out decline email, or something more personal.

I thankfully am not actually involved in hiring in any way. I don't really even interview many people.
