Responsibilities

We are looking for a Solutions Engineer to join our team. You will work closely with our Enterprise customers to ensure their success on the Cloudflare platform. Responsibilities will include: onboarding new customers, developing technical documentation on Cloudflare’s architecture/feature set, light programming work, and developing a deep expertise in Cloudflare’s technology, and being a subject matter expert on web/mobile security and performance: for example performing log analysis of HTTP/S traffic and developing web application firewall rules.

As a Solutions Engineer, you will utilize your technical expertise to ensure customer happiness.  It's important to note this role is both pre and post sales. You must have the personal skills to effectively sell Cloudflare and the technical skills to do the implementation. The mix is roughly half pre-sales and half post-sales.

We need leaders who can both manage enterprise customers but who can also operate technically and make sure our largest customers are set up properly.

As a Solutions Engineer, you will have the opportunity to create and scale solutions that help our customers realize the full promise of Cloudflare.

  • Experience with apache, nginx, and/or IIS

  • Strong communication skills that allow you to be a bridge between customers and the engineering team

  • Some scripting skills/development experience

Bonus Points

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Math or related field

What Makes Us 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. In 2014, we launched Project Galileo, an initiative through which we partner with global NGOs to identify websites at risk of attack and provide the same state-of-the-art mitigation technology already used by Cloudflare’s enterprise customers--at no cost. Project Galileo equips politically and artistically important organizations and journalists with powerful tools to defend themselves against attacks that would otherwise censor their work. In 2016, we announced our partnership with Path Forward, a nonprofit organization that works with companies to create 18-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. With the lofty goal of shaping the future of the Internet, we’re focused on recruiting the best and the brightest, no matter what.
