About the Role

We are looking for Security Engineering Interns to help scale our Infrastructure Security function, which works closely with engineering & product management to ensure that security is appropriately addressed across the HashiCorp products and services.

Security at HashiCorp is largely a remote team. While prior experience working remotely isn't required, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy.

In this role, your responsibilities will include:

  • Assist in designing, implementing and monitoring HashiCorp’s security controls and technologies
  • Apply knowledge gained in Computer Science or Security courses to real world challenges

  • Assess risk arising from third-parties, vendors and partners in our ecosystem and design controls to mitigate such risks
  • Document security processes and standards
  • Partner with subject matter experts on multiple information security areas (e.g. security architecture, security operations, CI/CD security etc.)
  • Assist in execution of 3rd-party audits, penetration tests, and bug bounty programs
  • Contribute to the creation and delivery of security trainings
  • Research emerging attack vectors and techniques
  • Support GRC and customer security requests as needed

We are looking for talented self-starters who want to learn about security engineering. We will consider engineers with less security-specific experience but the desire to learn!

You may be a good fit for our team if you...
