Backend Software Engineer - Web3
Posted on: August 7, 2022
At Cloudflare, we have our eyes set on an ambitious goal: to help
build a better Internet. Today the company runs one of the world's
largest networks that powers approximately 25 million Internet
properties, for customers ranging from individual bloggers to SMBs
to Fortune 500 companies. Cloudflare protects and accelerates any
Internet application online without adding hardware, installing
software, or changing a line of code. Internet properties powered
by Cloudflare all have web traffic routed through its intelligent
global network, which gets smarter with every request. As a result,
they see significant improvement in performance and a decrease in
spam and other attacks. Cloudflare was named to Entrepreneur
Magazine's Top Company Cultures list and ranked among the World's
Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company.
We realize people do not fit into neat boxes. We are looking for
curious and empathetic individuals who are committed to developing
themselves and learning new skills, and we are ready to help you do
that. We cannot complete our mission without building a diverse and
inclusive team. We hire the best people based on an evaluation of
their potential and support them throughout their time at
Cloudflare. Come join us!
About The Distributed Web Team
The Distributed Web team maintains Cloudflare's InterPlanetary File
System (IPFS) and Ethereum Gateways . The IPFS Gateway lets users
access content stored on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)
quickly and easily, without downloading any special software or
giving up any storage space on their computer. Similarly,
Cloudflare's Ethereum Gateway lets users interact with the Ethereum
network without installing any software on their computer.
Cloudflare Distributed Web Gateway provides an HTTP interface to
the Distributed Web. Leveraging Cloudflare infrastructure, websites
can easily and securely retrieve data from Ethereum or IPFS. In
this role, you can expect to face challenges in providing
distributed systems at scale, operating active open source
projects, as well as operating at the Edge.
These projects are written in Go and TypeScript, and run in a
Kubernetes environment. Along with the rest of the team, you will
own and support the whole stack: the code base, deployment and
rollback plans, operations, monitoring, alerting and debugging. You
may contribute to open source projects, and see your code be served
Example Of Desirable Skills, Knowledge, And Experience
The person we are looking for is someone who has or can demonstrate
the following attributes:
- Can chase problems through multiple layers of our software
stack. You can be flexible and you are very curious.
- Flexible and very autonomous. You are thinking out of the box
and coming up with simple and smart design for complex issues.
- Care about writing robust systems, code quality, performance
and technical debt. You understand the trade offs that doing
rigorous engineering requires.
- Worked on storage systems, peer to peer systems, distributed
systems or simply system programming in general.
- Pragmatic and believe in the value of design elegance -- a
simple solution is often better than a more complex one.
- Does low-level and high-level programming.
