About Us:

At CloudFlare, we have our eyes set on an ambitious goal -- to build a better web.

We are still a small team, well-funded, growing quickly and focused on building a world-class company.

  • Experience working in a support role where you thrived everytime you resolved a ticket
  • Strong communication skills that allow you to be a bridge between customers and the engineering team

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with PostgreSQL, MySQL, MS SQL, and other database servers.
