Front End Engineer at Cloudflare

Location: Austin, Texas

Posted January 28, 2019

Description

At Cloudflare, we have our eyes set on an ambitious goal: to help build a better Internet. Today, Cloudflare runs one of the world’s largest distributed networks that powers more than 10 trillion requests per month, which is nearly 10 percent of all Internet requests worldwide. Cloudflare protects and accelerates any Internet application online without adding hardware, installing software, or changing a line of code.

Our customers range from Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits to small businesses and budding entrepreneurs. We are 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.

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!

Product Strategy 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. These teams are empowered to drive the product and technical vision to build things which are, in the words of our CTO, ‘audacious’. Unlike an R&D division, Product Strategy doesn’t build theoretical or abstract tools, we brought six products to market in the first quarter of this year alone.

Responsibilities

We are looking for experienced front-end engineers to join our team. The ideal candidates will have experience working with large-scale applications and a track record of producing great output. You must care deeply not only about the quality of your and the team's code, but also the customer experience. We have growing front-end needs, so we’re looking for highly motivated individuals that are excited to join a team and work with product and content owners, designers, and other software engineers to build and scale services at Cloudflare.

We believe that a great design is at the heart of any successful product and you will work closely with our design/UX team and must be comfortable seeking feedback from non-technical sources. We work iteratively and deploy often (sometimes several times per day). We are also strong believers in dog-fooding our own products. From cache configuration to Cloudflare Access to Cloudflare Workers, these are all tools in our frontend engineer's tool belt.

Technologies we use include Node, React, Redux, TypeScript, ES6, Webpack, Fela, Jest, Enzyme, Puppeteer, D3, and more.

Requirements

Note: it is not required that you have all of these! Teams have varying needs, focuses, and use varying technologies.

  • BA/BS in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Minimum of 2+ years experience building web applications
  • Strong knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Understanding of responsive design and its implementation
  • Experience building and shipping production React.js applications
  • Extensive knowledge of the JavaScript ecosystem

  • Good analytical and debugging skills
  • Unit/integration testing experience
