About The Role
You'll be responsible for driving, building and shipping some of the most critical services at Cloudflare, including Workers KV (a globally distributed key-value store) and Hyperdrive, which turns regional databases into globally distributed ones.

  • Workers KV underpins a large number of critical-path customer applications and Cloudflare-internal applications, and is one of the highest traffic services we have today. A tremendous number of customers rely on KV to store and serve configuration, routing and authentication data for every client they serve.
  • Hyperdrive enables developers to connect to existing relational databases in any other cloud (or on-prem) from Cloudflare Workers without incurring the overhead of establishing new connections and by caching frequent reads close to the client so that hot queries can be returned in milliseconds, not hundreds.


You'll be responsible for growing all of these products, ensuring they are highly reliable, and engaging directly with developers from organizations of all sizes to understand how we can address their problems.
The Team
We announced Cloudflare Workers in 2017 - since then it's played a key role in Cloudflare's strategy for entering the compute market. Until the launch of Workers, as Cloudflare was ramping up its capabilities in the performance and security spaces, it became clear that developers needed more ways to control the edge than rules engines could support.
Over the past few years, Workers has grown from a simple functions-as-a-service option into a fully blown full-stack platform. With any application, however, in addition to serverless compute, you need to be able to manage state and connect to data you already have.
What You'll Do

  • Drive the strategy, roadmap & represent your products across the organization
  • Lead projects from ideation through launch, and continuing through ongoing maintenance and support
  • Develop and nurture relationships with engineering and coordinate closely to ensure successful delivery of product
  • Partner with other departments such as Product Marketing, Marketing, Community & developer advocacy, Sales, and Customer Support to drive adoption and gather feedback from customers and prospects
  • Ruthlessly prioritize across a complex environment of diverse customers, stakeholders and objectives
  • Represent the company externally as needed, including meetings with customers and prospects and analysis
  • Delve into market research to drive new investments opportunities


Examples Of Desirable Skills, Knowledge And Experience
The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial-minded and thrives in a fast-paced and goal-driven environment.
You have outstanding communication and collaboration skills and are able to work with a diverse group, get alignment, and drive the product forward. You are execution focused and emphasize getting things done while paying attention to important details.

  • Proven track record of shipping developer-facing products from ideation to launch
  • Experience distilling complex topics into easily understood written documents for stakeholders across levels and functions.
  • Developer focus - you'll be working directly, and often be a part of the customers team in helping them get their initial implementation off the ground
  • BS/MS in a technology field.
  • Professional product management experience (3-4 years)
  • Strong technical abilities. You are intimately familiar with modern software development practices used to build and deploy applications. You are capable of wading into the details & understanding engineering decisions' impact on the product, but can also drive 30k foot view
  • A desire to sweat the details and ship great developer experiences
  • Experience using developer tools (such as source-control management tools, CLIs, etc)
  • A love for talking to developers at organizations both large and small on a daily basis so that you can build and ship products that solve real problems.
  • Scripting/programming experience (Javascript, Rust, Go, etc.) and/or experience with using Cloudflare Workers or other serverless runtimes are considered a significant bonus.

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