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.
18.104.22.168: We released 22.214.171.124 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.

At Cloudflare, we have strived to create and uphold an inclusive culture and a workplace where employees feel comfortable and empowered to bring their genuine selves to work so they can do their best work. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you came to the right place!
Our six Cloudflare capabilities serve as our core values and the building blocks of an inclusive culture. They outline the behaviors we consider when measuring success, giving feedback, and rewarding performance.
When we evaluate performance, we review “what” the outcome is, the results. However, we also consider “how” we work and what good looks like, the behaviors. It doesn’t just matter what you do, but how you do it.
