Product Education Engineer, Consul

As a Product Education Engineer at HashiCorp, you will become an expert in Consul (including Consul Enterprise) and teach others to become experts. You will be the source of truth for operational recommended practices, implementation guidance, and solution architecture.

Consul is a distributed service mesh to connect, secure, and configure services across any runtime platform and public or private cloud. It is primarily operated in code and on the command line. Consul is one of the most popular infrastructure projects on GitHub and sees over 1 million downloads each month. Consul Enterprise builds on those features for global organizations operating mission-critical systems at scale. For this role you should be comfortable working with code and the command line.

This role is cross-functional between product, engineering, sales engineering, and customer success. You should be excited about taking feedback and requests from the field, coming up with creative solutions to real-world problems, and documenting those solutions for others to learn from. You should be passionate about devops, microservices, security, teaching, and education — both internally for HashiCorp employees and externally for HashiCorp users.
