  • Complete peacetime tasks and projects, such as building or improving training content, knowledgebase articles, quality assessments, support and escalation management processes, and participating in interviews. If coming from a support engineering background, you may take Cloud support tickets, to load balance and keep your HashiCorp product knowledge current.
