Job Description

Let’s start with why we exist.

Fleet builds open source software to manage and secure computing infrastructure: employee laptops, cloud servers, and more. Our technology helps IT and security teams build trust within their organization, while getting their jobs done more effectively.

Fleet is an all-remote company with experienced founders, including two creators of popular open source projects and a compelling lead investor. Our business model is inspired by the success of GitLab and Elastic, and we have incredible early customers ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies with hundreds of thousands of endpoints.

What happens when you join us?

  • As the first senior engineering hire, this position offers huge potential for growth.
  • You will write significant open source code, merging commits in your first days at the company.
  • You will work closely with the CTO and CEO to define technical and product vision.
  • Over time, you will establish yourself as a leader in Fleet’s growing team and user community, whether through management or expert-level individual contributions.

Why should you join us?

  • Work from anywhere with good internet. (We’re 100% remote. No office. No commute.)
  • Help make endpoint monitoring less intrusive and more transparent.
  • Safeguard the production servers and employee laptops of Earth’s largest companies.
  • Build greenfield features and make key technical decisions that go live in days.
  • Most (if not all) of the code you write is public and highly visible at github.com/fleetdm/fleet.

Are you our new teammate?

  • You are competent with source control in Git. You have great written communication skills.
  • You can mentor other developers and do code reviews. Maybe you managed open source projects before; maybe you collaborated closely with more junior engineers at work.
  • You look forward to working with designers to improve the user experience of stuff you work on.
  • You bring senior talent to our team and open source community, with 4+ years of equivalent experience.
  • Nice to have: Experience working on an all-remote, distributed team.

For now, let’s focus on Golang:

Fleet’s server is written in Go with go-kit. Deployments range from single servers to over 100,000 clients connected to horizontally scaled Fleet servers, handling tens of thousands of requests per minute. We aim to keep Fleet’s deployment as simple as possible to ease self-hosted deployment. MySQL and Redis are used for persistence and caching.

  • Experience building scalable, production quality servers.
  • Ability to recommend and implement backend testing patterns (E2E tests, etc.)
  • Familiarity with server and SQL performance profiling and optimization.
  • Familiarity with database migration strategies.
  • Nice to have: Experience programming with Go and go-kit.
  • Nice to have: Experience with Redis and/or MySQL.
  • Nice to have: Experience deploying and operating hosted SaaS services.
  • Nice to have: Experience working with Mobile Device Management (MDM) APIs.
  • Nice to have: Experience deploying/monitoring/managing containers with Docker/K8s

May 2021

Job Description

Consul helps organizations automate network configurations, discover services, and enable secure connectivity across any cloud or runtime. We recently launched Hashicorp Consul Service on Azure, a fully managed application available through the Azure marketplace. We’ve also announced the availability of Consul on AWSthrough our flagship HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP), a self-service, fully managed platform offering HashiCorp products as a service to automate infrastructure on any cloud.

About HashiCorp

HashiCorp is a fast-growing startup that solves development, operations, and security challenges in infrastructure so organizations can focus on business-critical tasks. We build products to give organizations a consistent way to manage their move to cloud-based IT infrastructures for running their applications. Our products enable companies large and small to mix and match AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and other clouds as well as on-premises environments, easing their ability to deliver new applications for their business.

At HashiCorp, we have used the Tao of HashiCorp as our guiding principles for product development and operate according to a strong set of company principles for how we interact with each other. We value top-notch collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users.

Engineering at HashiCorp is largely a remote team. While prior experience working remotely isn’t required, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy.

About the Role:

On the Consul team, we help organizations automate network configurations, discover services, and enable secure connectivity across any cloud or runtime. The customers and large community of users of our tools are operators, infrastructure engineers, and software developers that encounter novel performance, scaling, and usability challenges that we help them solve.

Consul started as an infrastructure management tool for service discovery and health checking, and has evolved to become a full-featured service mesh. Some of the functionality you’ll be working on will include proxy integrations, Envoy’s xDS APIs, certificate management for mutual TLS connectivity, and security through service-oriented Intentions. You’ll be an active contributor to the service mesh ecosystem, following new developments in emerging technology and competitive offerings, looking for opportunities for product differentiation, and rethinking product architecture to meet new global scale and organizational demands.

In this role you can expect to:

  • Program mostly in Go, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills.
  • Build and architect distributed systems for service connectivity across heterogeneous environments (Kubernetes, VMs, bare metal datacenter or edge deployments).
  • Interface directly with internal teams, users and HashiCorp customers, as well as the larger Consul community.
  • Participate in user research studies and discussions with product managers and customers to better understand the network topologies, challenges, and constraints for which operators are trying to solve, and leverage those insights when approaching feature design and implementation.
  • Propose new functionality or substantive changes through written documents in an async process, describing the problem background, proposed implementation and example UX, then iterating on peer feedback collaboratively.
  • Own the full lifecycle of feature development from design through testing, release and support.

You may be a good fit for our team if you have:

  • Experience in a lower-level language like Go.
  • Familiarity with service-oriented architectures, and ideally have worked on an infrastructure or platform team building internal tooling to deploy, connect and monitor them.
  • Empathy for the people operating, learning, teaching and supporting software you write, and consider their experience when making design decisions and performance, security or complexity tradeoffs.
  • Awareness of the broader service mesh ecosystem and an interest in contributing to a full-featured product offering while reducing complexity and barriers to adoption for practitioners.
  • Curiosity for academic computer science research, particularly distributed systems papers such as Raft and Paxos variants, and enjoy learning more about the challenges of consistency at global scale.
  • Collaborate with peer engineers in discussions around performance, user experience, security and other constraints when designing complex systems.

What is our hiring process like?

The below serves as a basic outline; we may choose to add or remove steps based on the information that we gather during the process.

  • Introductory Call with someone from our recruiting team.
  • First Interview with an Engineering Manager
  • Interview Loop with additional team members, with the following panel:
    • Technical Code Pairing interview
    • Code Review interview
    • Communication and Collaboration interview
    • Systems and architecture interview
  • If applicable, a final conversation with the Engineering Manager for the team you would be joining
  • Offer

We do our best to accommodate your programming language of choice for technical interviews.

About the Application Process:

Please note, as collaboration and communication are a critical aspect of how we work, a cover letter is a great way to provide a sample of how you communicate.

In your cover letter, please describe why you’re interested in working at HashiCorp, and what draws you to this role in particular. Specifics of your past experience that are relevant to this role are great to include, too.

HashiCorp embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We believe the more inclusive we are, the better our company will be.

More about what we’re doing

The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people.

That’s what we’re working towards.

We believe that diversity will make us better.

Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for. Which means we need people who have different backgrounds and experiences, who are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.

Job Description

Fastly helps people stay better connected with the things they love. Fastly’s edge cloud platform enables customers to create great digital experiences quickly, securely, and reliably by processing, serving, and securing our customers’ applications as close to their end-users as possible — at the edge of the Internet. The platform is designed to take advantage of the modern internet, to be programmable, and to support agile software development. Fastly’s customers include many of the world’s most prominent companies, including Vimeo, Pinterest, The New York Times, and GitHub.

We’re building a more trustworthy Internet. Come join us.

Principal Software Engineer - Edge Data

You will be one of the first engineers working on a brand-new system that Fastly has been prototyping and is now beginning to operationalize. The system applies cutting-edge distributed systems theory — notably, CRDTs — to Fastly’s global network to provide an infrastructure for state at the edge.

What You’ll Do

  • Learn the distsys theory and Go implementation of the project to proficiency, becoming a technical “co-founder” and owner
  • Optimize system performance to meet Fastly’s Internet-scale requirements, via testing, profiling, refactoring, and redesigning
  • Collaborate with customer-facing teams to define and implement primitives that will power a huge number of future Fastly products
  • Help to design, develop, and participate in a process for onboarding new engineers to the project, with a focus on mentorship and growth
  • Work in a small team that’s highly motivated to find new, innovative ways to give our customers new capabilities

What We’re Looking For

  • Clear, effective, and empathetic communication skills, both written and verbal, especially when discussing complex technical topics
  • Intermediate+ proficiency with Go (Golang), ideally having built and operated one or more large-scale projects
  • Advanced distributed systems theory experience, especially eventual consistency, and a strong interest in learning more
  • A “systems thinker” who always keeps the big picture in mind, even as they work on the smallest details
  • Effective at asynchronous remote work, with teammates across the world

Why Fastly?

  • We have a huge impact. Fastly is a small company with a big reach. Not only do our customers have a tremendous user base, but we also support a growing number of open source projects and initiatives. Outside of code, employees are encouraged to share causes close to their heart with others so we can help lend a supportive hand.

  • We love distributed teams. Fastly’s home-base is in San Francisco, but we have multiple offices and employees sprinkled around the globe. In fact, 50% of our employees work outside of SF! An international remote culture is in our DNA.

  • We care about you. Fastly works hard to create a positive environment for our employees, and we think your life outside of work is important too. We support our teams with great benefits like up to 20 weeks of paid parental leave, options for free medical/dental/vision plans, and an open vacation program that enables our folks to take the time they need to recharge (some benefits may vary by location).

  • We value diversity. Growing and maintaining our inclusive and diverse team matters to us. We are committed to being a company where our employees feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to work and have the ability to be successful – every day.

  • We are passionate. Fastly is chock full of passionate people and we’re not ‘one size fits all’. Fastly employs authors, pilots, skiers, parents (of humans and animals), makeup geeks, coffee connoisseurs, and more. We love employees for who they are and what they are passionate about.

We’re always looking for humble, sharp, and creative folks to join the Fastly team. If you think you might be a fit, please apply!

What is it like to work for Bud?

We could play buzzword bingo but one of our core values is ‘Authentic’ and the best way to demonstrate this is by sharing our employee engagement dashboard. This provides a weekly engagement and NPS score giving you a true reflection of life at Bud. All data collected is realtime & anonymised so we have no control over what you see.

The dashboard is interactive so check it out here and have a look at what the numbers mean, https://bit.ly/2MhjAZT

We also put on events and have a new social committee every quarter to keep it exciting in normal times. At the moment we have remote events which change often depending on what the teams are interested in.

A bit more about us

We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.

More about what we’re doing

The APIs and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.

We believe that diversity will make us better

Bud’s mission is to create the world’s most compelling financial data products. Getting there requires a workforce as diverse as the people we create our products for, be that in terms of age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, or ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.

Monzo Logo
Backend Engineer - Tech Ops
Monzo
London United Kingdom / Remote (UK)
£69,000 to £116,000 a year
November 2020
3 Applicants This Week

Job Description

We’re looking for a Backend Engineer to join our TechOps squad at Monzo.

Our TechOps squad is primarily responsible for making sure everyone at Monzo has all of the tools they need to do a great job. That means managing all of our devices (predominantly running Mac and Chrome OS), managing our G-Suite domains, providing 1:1 support to Monzonauts across the business, and much much more.

A big contributor to the success TechOps have had to date is the way we’ve embedded engineers in the squad, meaning we’ve been able to automate away a lot of the manual work traditionally associated with a TechOps squad.

This has allowed us to move quickly, achieve an incredible ratio of TechOps people to total employees, and reap the benefits of being able to hire people all across the world without friction.

You’ll help us solve problems such as:

  • How do we continue to offer outstanding service to all of our Monzonauts without exponentially increasing the number of people working in TechOps? What can we build to automate the work of 20 people?
  • What parts of traditional IT can we rethink with code to supercharge TechOps at Monzo?
  • How do we build a seamless, delightful experience for Monzonauts with best-in-class homegrown code and third party services?

The role

You’ll be a backend engineer in the squad. Some of the projects you’ll be involved in might include:

  • Integrating MDM (Mobile Device Management) and making this a function that integrates with everything else at Monzo, from inventory to access levels on your AWS account.
  • Building a seamless way to replicate groups, roles and other logical frameworks across first and third party applications to make authorisation for a Monzonaut a seamless experience.
  • Building on a system to track any and every Monzo-owned asset, from network switches to access passes and everything in between.
  • So much more - you’ll have the opportunity to influence our roadmap and build on the foundations already in place to continue scaling TechOps with Monzo

You’ll work closely with TechOps generalists and engineers from around the business to tackle some of the challenges mentioned above, working at the intersection between Security, People and TechOps to make sure we’re moving forwards together.

Security, scalability and how we continue to support the services you’re building should always be front of mind.

You’ll also have the opportunity to coach and mentor others in the squad on engineering best practices. We want to empower everyone in the squad to automate away the low-value manual work, and you’ll be key to unlocking this potential alongside other engineers in the squad.

At Monzo we’re aiming to build the best current account in the world. We are always keen to hear from capable, creative engineers who want to help us accomplish that goal 🚀

Our backend engineers have a variety of different backgrounds

We have several non-graduates; only some of us studied Computer Science; one of the team has a degree in Marketing; some of us have worked in huge companies; some have only ever worked in startups; others are former consultants. As long as you enjoy learning new things, we’d love to talk to you. We do not ask for formal qualifications or degree requirements for any of our engineering roles.

We are actively creating an equitable environment for all of our engineers to thrive

Diversity and inclusion are a priority for us and we are making sure we have lots of support for all of our people to grow at Monzo. We provide a sponsorship framework in Engineering for women and people of colour; all of our leaders are trained on privilege awareness and we are creating partnerships with organisations dedicated to supporting underrepresented groups. You can read more in our 2020 Diversity and Inclusion report.

We encourage an open and transparent working environment

You can get involved in any aspect of the business you are interested in and, following Stripe’s example, all emails in the company are visible in an email archive. We contribute to open source software as much as possible. Our blog is a good place to learn even more about what we do!

Monzo works in project-based sprints in small, interdisciplinary teams

We have around 150 engineers out of roughly 1,400 people in total - and we have big ambitions. There are many interesting challenges ahead, and we’re happy for people to move between teams or to specialise, whatever you prefer. As an engineer here you’d be able to work directly with anyone across the company, and we run regular knowledge-sharing sessions so you’ll learn heaps about everything from how banks work to effective communication.

At Monzo you will get to work with a lot of exciting new technology.

We rely heavily on the following tools and technologies:

  • Go to write our application code (there’s an excellent interactive Go tutorial here)
  • Cassandra for most persistent data storage
  • Kafka for our asynchronous message queue
  • Envoy Proxy for RPC
  • Kubernetes and Docker to schedule and run our services (Oliver, our VP Architecture, gave a great talk at KubeCon on how we use these technologies)
  • AWS for most of our infrastructure
  • React for internal web dashboards
  • We also have two physical datacenter sites with actual cables to connect to various third parties

Our product squads are truly cross-functional.

This role is all about collaborating across disciplines to test hypotheses and make a difference to customers. As a product backend engineer you’ll work in a squad alongside product managers, marketers, user researchers, designers, mobile engineers, web engineers, data analysts, business analysts, writers and more!

You should apply if

  • You’re someone who doesn’t wait to be told what to do. You spot problems and proactively fix them
  • You’re an engineer who’s happy writing (or would like to learn to write) views in React and backend services in Go
  • You’re someone who can think big, but start small. The squad have lots of ideas and you’ll need to help shape these and show what is possible - then bring that to life
  • You have ideas about how we can think ‘big picture’ and can scale TechOps going forward
  • You’re comfortable working with an interrupt-driven squad. A lot of what the squad does is reactive, and you’ll need to support that at times. TechOps spin a lot of plates, and it’s important that you can see the bigger picture and prioritise your time to work on the most important problems

Logistics

Salary is around £69,000 - £116,000 plus stock options and other benefits.

We can help you relocate to London & we can sponsor visas.

This role can be based in our London office, but we’re open to distributed working (with ad hoc meetings in London once COVID is over).

We have payroll set up in three countries: the UK, Ireland, and France. Right now, we can only hire people who work from those countries and we’ll keep this updated with new ones as we expand and are able to hire from more places 🌎

We offer flexible working hours and trust you to work enough hours to do your job well, at times that suit you and your team.

Diversity and inclusion is a priority for us – if we want to solve problems for people around the world, our team has to represent our customers. So we need to attract the best talent and create an environment that supports and includes them. You can read more about diversity and inclusion on our blog.

If you prefer to work part-time, we’ll make this happen whenever we can - whether this is to help you meet other commitments or strike a great work-life balance.

Our interview process is normally a phone interview, a coding task and call to discuss it, and 2-3 hours of onsite interviews that can be conducted via hangouts as well. We promise not to ask you any brain teasers or trick questions. We might design a system together on a whiteboard, the same way we often work together, but we won’t make you write code on one.

Equal Opportunity Statement


At Monzo, embracing diversity in all of its forms and fostering an inclusive environment for all people to do the best work of their lives with us. This is integral to our mission of making money work for everyone.

We’re an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status, national origin, veteran, neurodiversity status or disability status.

Geckoboard Logo
Backend Go Software Engineer
Geckoboard
London, United Kingdom / Remote (UK)
£65,000 to £80,000 a year
November 2020
3 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Excited about the idea of working on distributed systems at scale? Want to be writing Go everyday? With great people? We’re looking for curious problem solvers to do just that.

At Geckoboard, we’re working to help teams achieve their goals by enabling a fresh way of working. This revolves around making sure that important data gets seen and acted upon. That’s where our dashboards come in. Geckoboard is straightforward dashboard software that makes it quick and easy to surface live business data, metrics and KPIs for teams.

Our engineering culture

We’re all here to build something great. You’ll be joining a growing team of empowered engineers in a supportive environment that values experimentation, work-life balance and personal development. We’ve built a culture of knowledge sharing and feedback, so you’ll be involved in planning and prioritisation of work as well as peer reviews and pair programming.

Learning is also a big part of our engineering culture. About once every fortnight you’re able to take a whole day — an Innovation Day — to work on projects that interest you, learn new skills or contribute to open source… whatever it may be! We encourage these projects and often they have led to improvements in the way we work or concepts that have then been prioritised, developed further and added to our Product.

We work in small and focused cross-functional teams, usually made up of a Product Manager, a Designer, and a mix of Frontend and Backend Engineers. QA and Infrastructure tend to come in at the points they’re needed or for specific projects. We scope out our project such that we’re able to deliver meaningful work but small enough to iterate and take on board feedback quickly. We encourage our engineers to get involved in different teams and projects based on their interests, skills and opportunities to learn. We’re also equally mindful about technical debt and make sure we dedicate time to addressing it.

Our teams

**Product
**Our product teams each own a different part of the product, building features that improve Geckoboard for our customers. Some of our recent work has ranged from a new send-to-Slack feature, SSO and in the team you’ll be joining initially, we’ve been building a brand new internal framework for importing, storing, and analysing data from third-party APIs we integrate with. We know that investing in our Data Platform is the best way we can deliver flexible, high-quality integrations quickly and easily. The new framework takes care of managing and scheduling imports, responding to webhooks, receiving analytics queries, migrating data from one version to the next and allows us to build internal gRPC services using a common protobuf interface upon it.

**Platform
**We believe that we can only be successful as an Engineering team if we are constantly and systematically investing in our tooling, our common systems, and our developer experience, this is where our Platform team comes in. Our recent work has ranged from rapid response work to improving test and trace coverage, migrating existing services to Go modules and support for other teams. We’re also working on enabling older RESTful services to be migrated onto gRPC with a GraphQL API gateway in front.

You should apply if:

  • What we’ve described sounds interesting

  • You’re interested in distributed systems

  • You’ve worked with Go before*

  • You want to build a product that delights its users and genuinely serves their needs

  • You’re collaborative; you empathise, listen and discuss

  • You actively seek out feedback in your work and to ensure you understand the problem you’re solving

We know that there are great candidates who may not exactly fit into what we’ve described above, or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you or you’re not sure, please apply, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Right now we’re only considering mid-to-senior level candidates, if you’re still developing your Go skillset and interested in joining the Geckoboard team, head to www.geckoboard.com/careers and get in touch, we’d love to hear from you and chat about future jobs!

Work where you work best:

While most of our team are normally based in our leafy East London office, a lot of us work remotely at least a day or two during the week. This means we’ve always been intentional about making sure our ways-of-working are remote-friendly so we can support that flexibility for everyone. We also have fully remote team members, though the expectation is that you’re comfortable with a visit to the London office about once a quarter (except during pandemics).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our office remains closed and everyone on the team is working from home presently. We’re likely to continue working from home over the Winter. We keep a close eye on the government guidance, regularly update the team, and plan to open our office only when it’s safe to do so again.

Some of our team have shorter working weeks and we’re more than happy to try to accommodate this or another arrangement whenever possible. Just let us know what works best for you or that you’d like to chat about it in your application.

Logistics:

At this time, we’re only considering candidates who are (or will be) based in the United Kingdom (regardless of whether you’re onsite when out offices reopen or fully remote). Unfortunately, we’re unable to provide sponsorship for this role.

Our hiring process:

  • 20-30 minute call with a Talent Partner
  • 45 minute video call with the Hiring Manager
  • Take home exercise
  • Virtual onsite with the team - about 2.5 hours

The whole process takes about 2-3 weeks end to end, but we’re flexible!

Job Description

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!

In this role, you can expect to:

  • Work on highly distributed and scalable systems
  • Participate in the constant cycle of knowledge sharing and mentoring
  • Manage and develop some of the biggest clusters in the world
  • Research and introduce cutting-edge technologies
  • Contribute to open-source

We are still a small team, well-funded, growing quickly and focused on building an extraordinary company. This is a superb opportunity to join a high-performing team and scale our high-growth network as Cloudflare’s business grows. You will build tools to constantly improve availability, performance, uptime and response times. You will nurture a passion for an “automate everything” approach that makes systems failure-resistant and ready-to-scale.

You may be a good fit for our team if:

  • You have proven skills of designing, developing and delivering HA scalable production systems.
  • You have deep knowledge of configuration management software, preferably Salt.
  • You have solid experience with cluster management systems (Kubernetes, Mesos)
  • You are comfortable with developing software in Go or Python
  • You know how network services (DNS, TLS/SSL, HTTP) and network fundamentals (DHCP, subnetting, routing, firewalls, IPv6, BGP) work
  • You have strong experience designing and managing multi-tenant database solutions (Clickhouse, PostgreSQL, CockroachDB)
  • You are confident in your knowledge with load balancers (nginx, HAProxy)

Bonus points if:

  • You have strong operational skills and are an expert in bash scripting
  • You have practical knowledge of web and systems performance, extensively used tracing tools like ebpf and strace.

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.

Sound like something you’d like to be a part of? We’d love to hear from you!
