Meet the Team

As a member of the Design Systems team, you’ll join a group of designers and engineers passionate about building an accessible and widely adopted design system for HashiCorp’s growing portfolio of products and other experiences. We have team members working from Canada, the UK, and the US.

What We Do

We’re the creators of the Helios Design System! We build and support a single source of truth for the design vision, tools, documentation, process, and infrastructure needed to build accessible, differentiated experiences for Hashicorp’s user interfaces.

What You’ll Do

You’ll draw on your experience as a designer working with design systems, helping our team expand, support, and maintain the Helios Design System, a widely adopted design system across HashiCorp. You’ll collaborate with a distributed, global team of designers and engineers to understand their needs and work to design and document accessible, scalable components and patterns. You’ll draw on your experience in accessibility to further educate fellow designers on accessibility best practices and conformance.

HashiCorp is largely made up of remote teams. 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.
