Software Engineer - Vault

Our Organization

At HashiCorp, we value top-notch collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users. We take care to balance and be responsive to the needs of our open source community as well as our enterprise level customers.

Engineering 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.

Our Products

We build Consul, Nomad, Vault, Terraform, Vagrant, and Packer. Alongside of that, we deploy enterprise products for each in a variety of different ways: licensed and unlicensed binaries, appliances to public cloud platforms, and hosted SaaS platforms. Our products help organizations of all sizes run any infrastructure for any application.

This Position

We are looking for an experienced engineer to join the Vault team and focus on developing the core subsystems in Vault. You will help design, prototype, and implement core features while ensuring the scalability and stability of Vault.

In this role, you can expect to:
  • Guide the technical approach and architecture of Vault
  • Help contribute to the Vault community by providing code review, mentorship, and support to HashiCorp employees, community members, and partners
  • Advocate and support improvements to Vault APIs and core to improve development and integration of tools and plugins
  • Work on issues and improvements critical to the success of HashiCorp customers and the broader community
You may be a good fit for our team if:
  • You have experience in a lower-level language like Go
  • You have experience working with distributed software
  • You have experience with customer support or OSS community support to help work with the Vault community
  • You have experience operating and maintaining production systems in a public cloud environment
  • You have expertise in one or more of the major public clouds
  • You are familiar with infrastructure management concepts
  • You have a working understanding of commonly-used security technologies
  • You have experience using Vault

In your cover letter, please describe why you're interested in working at HashiCorp, and on the Vault team in particular.

At HashiCorp, we are committed to hiring and cultivating a diverse team. If you are on the fence about whether you would be successful working with us, please apply anyway!

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
