About Us

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!

About the department

As one of the Internet\'s largest global networks, we are regular participants in complex public policy matters. We also take our mission to heart. 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. We followed that effort with the Athenian Project in 2017, designed to help protect election websites, for free.

What you\'ll do

Cloudflare is looking for a Policy Analyst/Program Manager for Project Galileo and Athenian Project to join the Policy team in our Washington, D.C. office.

Because the position will provide day to day support to Project Galileo and the Athenian Project, Cloudflare s initiatives to protect vulnerable nonprofit and government election websites from attack, we are looking for a candidate who can communicate equally effectively with non-profit entities, government representatives, and engineering teams. You will work closely with other Cloudflare teams to support existing Project Galileo and Athenian customers. As the company and these projects grow, there will be an opportunity to think creatively about new partnerships with civil society groups and how to make new products available to vulnerable organizations online.

You will also work with our Policy team to research and develop policy positions on public policy developments affecting Cloudflare. At Cloudflare, we believe not only in helping to build a better Internet, but also in helping to get the policies that govern it right.

A normal day at Cloudflare will involve working cross-functionally with our teams responsible for: sales, network deployment, marketing, compliance, and trust and safety. Coordinating with our diverse, multidisciplinary team already grappling with policy issues in the regular course of their jobs, you will assist the policy team s development of a consistent set of strategies and campaigns to support Cloudflare s users, our mission, and the Internet at large. You ll be able to develop and improve upon our existing processes, and help us pave the way for continued expansion.

Examples of desirable skills, knowledge and experience

* The ideal candidate is a proactive self-starter, with a thirst for knowledge and an understanding of technology, Internet policy, and policy development.

* Must have the ability to organize, prioritize, and manage many tasks on a complex project

* Must have the ability to work collaboratively on a team to establish effective solutions efficiently and in an amenable manner

* Excellent written and oral communication skills, including ability to write articles or blog posts on various topics that appeal to a broad audience

* Willingness to try new things and an ability to figure anything out in a short time frame

* Bachelor's Degree

* Above all, you love the Internet and have a passion for making it better.

Bonus Points

* Experience with government policy makers or non-profit organizations

* Technical background or undergraduate degree in Computer Science, Information Systems, or Network Engineering

* A Cloudflare customer.

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.

Project Athenian: 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!
