See jobs at HashiCorp
HashiCorp builds devops tools for modern applications. We build open source tools, and enterprise products on top of them. The HashiCorp suite empowers organizations to provision hybrid cloud infrastructure, secure secrets across distributed applications, and run dynamic resources.
At HashiCorp, we value 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.
HashiCorp’s Vagrant is an open source tool for building and distributing development environments. It provides declarative, config-driven engine to manage environments on local virtualized platforms such as VirtualBox or VMware, in the cloud via AWS or OpenStack, or in containers such as with Docker or raw LXC.
We want you to contribute to the development and maintenance of Vagrant and Vagrant Cloud, in tight collaboration with the large and growing Vagrant community, utilizing software engineering skills to work across a diverse set of infrastructure providers.
In this role, you can expect to:
- Support new and existing Vagrant drivers and providers
- Contribute to Vagrant's integrations with other HashiCorp projects, such as Packer and Terraform
- Help support open source contributors, new and seasoned, with supportive and constructive code review, documentation improvements, and workflow changes
- Advocate and support improvements to Vagrant internals and exposed APIs
- Work on Vagrant issues and improvements critical to the success of HashiCorp customers and the broader community
- Support Vagrant Cloud, the mature Vagrant box-sharing SaaS
- Do most day-to-day coding in Ruby
You may be a good fit for our team if you have some combination of:
- Comfort with a scripting language (like Ruby) and a typed language (like Go)
- Experience with customer support or OSS community support (to help interface with the Vagrant community)
- Interest in virtual machine/container concepts and ecosystem
- Experience with operating systems other than Linux and OS X
HashiCorp embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We believe the more inclusive we are, the better our company will be.
HashiCorp is a company based in San Francisco that solves development, operations, and security challenges in infrastructure so organizations can focus on business-critical tasks. Who We Are HashiCorp was founded by Mitchell Hashimoto and Armon Dadgar in 2012 with the goal of revolutionizing datacenter management: application development, delivery, and maintenance. The datacenter of today is very different than the datacenter of yesterday, and we think the datacenter of tomorrow is just around the corner. We're writing software to take you all the way from yesterday to today, and then safely to tomorrow and beyond. Physical, virtual, containers. Private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. Windows, Linux, Mac. These are just some of the choices faced when architecting a datacenter of today. And the choice is not one or the other; instead, it is often a combination of many of these. HashiCorp builds tools to ease these decisions by presenting solutions that span the gaps. Our tools manage both physical machines and virtual machines, Windows, and Linux, SaaS and IaaS, etc. And we're committed to supporting next-generation technologies, as well. HashiCorp was founded and continues to be run by the primary authors of all our core technologies powering thousands of companies worldwide. We speak at conferences and write books related to application and infrastructure management. All our foundational technologies are open source and developed openly, and have been since 2010.
