About The Team

The Infrastructure Management Systems team is a core part of HashiCorp’s internal platform infrastructure group. Compromised of Site Reliability Engineers and Distributed Systems Engineers, this team is responsible for building the software that deploys and orchestrates infrastructure underpinning the HashiCorp Cloud Platform. We are working on the next-generation infrastructure platform for internal and external services, developing common tooling and workflows that are low friction and enable teams to get services built and deployed quickly and securely.

We work closely with our sister infrastructure teams, release engineering, developer productivity, site reliability engineering teams, and other internal groups consuming our infrastructure platform. As our group expands, we’re seeking more Software Engineers to join our infrastructure team.

Our infrastructure is hosted on AWS (EC2, S3, RDS, ECS) with backing data stores like PostgreSQL. We leverage the HashiStack suite (Terraform, Consul, Nomad, Vault, Packer) and in-house tooling written in Go. We ensure that all infrastructure components we offer to internal teams can be deployed consistently, reliably, and managed in a secure and compliant manner.

If this sounds interesting, we’d love to meet you! We have a large footprint and a quickly growing user base, with many interesting problems and opportunities for growth and development.

Within 90 days, you will:

  • Drive the research and testing of systems to help meet the needs of our Engineering teams, including writing RFCs to show what thoughts and considerations went into the selection of the system
  • Build, deploy, and support new platform components
  • Help develop mature software engineering practices
  • Provide occasional after-hours support for our tools in the event of an outage
