Magic Visibility Engineer


About the team

Cloudflare wants to give customers deeper insights into how their network operates.  We are building products that help visualize your network across all Cloudflare One products including Magic and Zero Trust. We are building new products to give customers deeper visibility into how their network is performing, provide insights into network threats, and give actionable recommendations to improve the security, performance, and reliability of their networks.

We are a team of engineers and product managers who obsess over quickly building products that solve real customer problems using innovative technologies and techniques which leverage Cloudflare’s unique architecture and global network footprint.

About the role

As a software engineer on the Magic Visibility team, you will contribute across a wide range of technologies and systems to deliver new products that provide network visibility to our customers. You will help build and grow a globally distributed network data collector and the pipeline that delivers, processes, and stores the massive stream of data. You will build backend services that analyze this network data and correlate it with a multitude of other data sources within Cloudflare. You will build APIs and integrations with other products such as DDoS mitigation, Magic Transit, and Magic Firewall to enable customers to take action on insights we surface. You will scale all of these technologies to enable access to these products to all Cloudflare customers. We primarily use technologies such as Go, Linux networking, Kafka, Clickhouse, GraphQL, SaltStack, Prometheus and Grafana.

We're looking for determined, curious, empathetic engineers to join our team!
