Sr. Software Engineer, Terraform Developer Productivity

About HashiCorp

HashiCorp is a fast-growing startup that solves development, operations, and security challenges in infrastructure so organizations can focus on business-critical tasks. We build products to give organizations a consistent way to manage their move to cloud-based IT infrastructures for running their applications. Our products enable companies large and small to mix and match AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and other clouds as well as on-premises environments, easing their ability to deliver new applications for their business.

The Terraform Platform Engineering group is composed of Site Reliability Engineers and distributed systems engineers working on the Terraform Cloud hosted service. Our group ensures that the platform’s underlying infrastructure, data stores, and core foundational services are reliable, performant, and robust. We work closely with the engineering teams that ship features for both Terraform Cloud and the Terraform Enterprise on-premise product. Together, we comprise the Terraform Commercial organization within engineering.

We’re looking to create a new team focused on enabling Terraform Commercial’s 50+ engineers to be more efficient and productive in their work. This team will be focused on three areas: DevTools and test environments, build and release pipelines (CI/CD, release engineering, etc.), and test harnesses and infrastructure

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced engineer to help define the vision for a new team that will have tremendous impact within our group, seeking answers to questions like:

  • How can we prevent developers from being distracted by flaky tests or a lack of standardized test methodology across our services?
  • How can we minimize time spent between code commit and production deploy, without sacrificing quality or reliability?
  • How do we accurately verify changes in our test and staging environments, so we can be confident that a production deploy will be successful?

If this sounds like an interesting opportunity, we’d love to meet you! We have a large footprint and a quickly-growing user base, with lots of interesting problems and plenty of opportunities for growth and development.

Responsibilities

In this role, you can expect to:

  • Think critically about the current challenges of a high-delivery engineering organization, and develop novel solutions
  • Jointly develop and execute on a roadmap for solving identified challenges 
  • Work closely with engineering leaders and managers within our group, and other teams within the company focused on quality and reliability
  • Grow into a technical leader for a new discipline for our organization

Requirements

You’re a great fit if you have:

  • Informed opinions (from prior experience) about:
    • Test methodology and tooling for Go and Rails (RSpec, etc.)
    • CI / CD tools and build + release pipelines
    • Test infrastructure and systems supporting complex distributed systems, with several services and codebases  
  • Experience as a software engineer implementing, testing, and debugging unit tests for Rails and Go applications
  • Desire to think strategically about these sort of challenges, and jointly develop a vision, roadmap, etc. for a team to execute
  • Ability to alternate between big-picture thinking and roll-up-your-sleeves engineering work
  • A passion for focusing work on unblocking others and empowering engineers to do their best work
  • Comfort working across several Go and Rails codebases

How We Work

At HashiCorp, we operate according to a strong set of company principles, many of which are described in The Tao of HashiCorp.

Engineering at HashiCorp is largely a remote team, and this role is no exception. 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.
