What We Do

At HashiCorp, we believe infrastructure enables innovation, and we are helping organizations to operate that infrastructure in the cloud. Our suite of multi-cloud infrastructure automation products — all with open source projects at their core — underpin the most important applications for the largest enterprises in the world. As part of the once-in-a-generation shift to the cloud, organizations of all sizes, from well-known brands to ambitious start-ups, rely on our solutions to provision, secure, connect, and run their business-critical applications so they can deliver essential services, communications tools, and entertainment platforms worldwide.

We’re building a unique software infrastructure company with a different approach: rather than focusing solely on technologies, we build the workflows designed to solve the real-world problems of IT operators working with multi-cloud environments. We have open source and commercial offerings for HashiCorp Terraform, Vault, Consul, Nomad, and we also maintain open source projects for HashiCorp Vagrant, Packer, Boundary, and Waypoint. Our products are downloaded by IT practitioners more than 100 million times a year, and we take our responsibility to our open source community very seriously.

Who We Are

We are a growing team of people who are deeply passionate about the work we do and the difference we make for our customers and community. We have adapted the best practices we learned from our roots in the world of open source software — effective remote and distributed teams, high levels of transparency, and ways of working that are flexible and scalable — into best practices for how we run every aspect of our company. We believe these practices encourage participation from a wider range of voices, surface better ideas, and lead to more effective, and inclusive decision making.

Open Source at Our Core

Our open source ethos is at the core of what HashiCorp is. We believe the open source model is the best way to understand and address the complex and critical challenges introduced by infrastructure that is the foundation for many different systems and end points. Starting with open source enables us to build software in a way that establishes a community where people are engaged and work together to help to solve issues for themselves and for others.
