A rough list of the skills we would love to see you bring:
Meeting the Team
We've designed our hiring process so that you have the opportunity to meet a variety of Cloudflare team members that you will work directly with: your prospective manager, peers from the team, and key stakeholders.
These conversations will help us understand how you think, what you’re passionate about, as well as which skills and creative problem-solving abilities you bring to the table. We also want you to get to know us too — our interviewers will be ready to answer all of your questions!
Orange Cloud Interview
During the hiring process you’ll have an Orange Cloud Interview which will focus on the Cloudflare Capabilities and the behaviors that we value. The interviewer will ask you to share examples of how you do your work and make an impact, rather than assessing your role-specific skills, knowledge, or experience.
So, how do you prepare for this interview? Consider how you display these values in your everyday work, reflect on recent situations at work, whether you’ve learnt from these experiences, and if you’d do anything differently if they were to happen again.
Compensation may be adjusted depending on work location.
This role is eligible to participate in Cloudflare’s equity plan.
We want to empower and inspire our team members to do their best work every day - making sure they feel happy, healthy and fulfilled both inside and outside of the workplace.
