About the department

The Cloudflare Dashboard team is a critical part of Cloudflare’s Control Plane Product and has the following areas of focus:

  1. Build a cohesive, delightful and self-serviceable user journey through the Cloudflare Customer Dashboard for every single user—across all plans, all personas, all roles. 
  2. Aim to provide a product that will allow Cloudflare to experience the next level of growth where users can adopt, onboard, and expand their product and feature usage through the dashboard alone, without going through a human Cloudflare representative.
  3. Tackle different cross cutting concerns that product teams have to manage along with their feature work and timelines. All this helps us to:
    1. Increase developer productivity.
    2. Improve code quality.
    3. Enhance application performance and security.

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. We released 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 commitment and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.
