About Cloudflare’s Product Management teams
We are looking for Product Manager interns to join our Product Management and Emerging Technology & Incubation teams.
The Product Management team at Cloudflare sits at the intersection of software development, design, and business strategy. We shape high-level product goals but also get our hands dirty. We have ultimate responsibility for understanding our client needs, influencing business strategy, feature specification, and working with engineering to develop our software. Cloudflare customers range from individual consumers to large multinational corporations and they use a wide range of products that help them make their sites and apps faster and more secure.
The Emerging Technology & Incubation team is where new, bold, products are built and released within Cloudflare. Rather than being constrained by the structures which make Cloudflare a massively successful business, we are able to leverage them to deliver entirely new tools and products to our customers. Cloudflare’s edge and network make it possible to solve problems at massive scale and efficiency which would be impossible for almost any other organization. At any given moment Product Strategy is engaged in a half dozen projects, each driven by a small technical team of just a handful of developers.

About the internship program
Interns at Cloudflare get to explore and work with some of the newest and most innovative advances in security, networking and performance. You will work closely with Software Engineers and designers to discover, invent, and build at the largest scale. You will be exploring challenges in data mining, machine learning, privacy and security, networking, storage, data management, and much more. You will be working in a fast-paced environment where you will be expected to take ownership of one or multiple features or products.
PMs at Cloudflare are very technical. You will need a background in engineering, computer science, mathematics or statistics and are looking to explore a role that is very customer and business focused. You enjoy wearing multiple hats and have an entrepreneurial mindset.
Aside from working on impactful projects, you will network and meet with our executives including our co-founders. All interns are paired with a mentor on the team to ramp up quickly and also with a buddy to connect with other folks across the company. Interns will present on their project to the company at the end of the summer.
