Susan Hobbs

Susan Hobbs is the Chief of Staff of Cloudflare, a web performance and security company. Her path to the tech world is unique. She began her career as a public school teacher in Southern California but returned to her Silicon Valley roots when she joined a hardware startup as their first non-engineering hire. Susan’s operating expertise lies in strategy, partnerships, product and marketing from this experience as well as her time at a San Francisco SaaS startup. Both startups were each acquired twice (Codian by Tandberg and then Cisco, CoTweet by ExactTarget and then Salesforce) leading Susan to once again expand her professional horizons by joining TechCrunch and eventually Y Combinator, both of which have defined early stage startup ecosystem.
