Nomad and Vault at CircleCI: Security and Scheduling are Not Your Core Competencies

See why CircleCI has adopted Nomad and Vault to solve his team’s most challenging security and scheduling demands.

When thinking about whether you should build something in-house or adopt a ready-made solution, it’s incredibly easy to fall into the trap of, “that’s such an easy problem, we’ll just build it ourselves.” In this talk, CircleCI CTO Rob Zuber will talk about why CircleCI has adopted Nomad and Vault to solve his team’s most challenging security and scheduling demands, while decreasing complexity and increasing throughput on the things that matter to CircleCI’s customers.

In the past six years, CircleCI has grown from a few engineers building a CI platform for single-page web apps written in Rails and Python, to powering the delivery pipelines for tens of thousands of organizations across the globe, on infrastructure processing tens of millions of jobs per month. As CircleCI’s platform has grown, the need to focus and ruthlessly prioritize has grown with it.

Rob will talk about the importance of understanding your company’s core competency and value proposition to users, and how to factor that into the build vs. adopt decision. Rob will talk about how the “not invented here” syndrome still persisted for a time even at CircleCI, and how to help your team focus on delivering differentiated value to end users.
