Security Data Engineer

About Us

HashiCorp is a fast-growing startup that solves development, operations, and security challenges in infrastructure so organizations can focus on business-critical tasks. We build 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. Our open source software is used by millions of users to provision, secure, connect, and run any infrastructure for any application. The Global 2000 uses our enterprise software to accelerate application delivery and drive innovation through software.

We’re looking for talented Data Engineers to join our Threat Detection and Response Team (TDR). This team will help defend HashiCorp by enhancing strategic detection, response, and prevention patterns across all of our products and the enterprise. This person will be responsible for expanding and maturing our approach to delivering visibility across all major cloud providers to ensure we have an accurate record of actions performed across each layer of our technology stacks.  This person will also be responsible for the continued improvement of our asset management coverage to ensure we always have an accurate inventory when investigating security events.

As a member of our Security team, you’ll be responsible for ensuring we have the best practices implemented across our multi-cloud environment.  You will partner with engineering and other stakeholders to define and drive secure by default environments supporting  our products and the enterprise.  We’re heavily invested in tooling and automation, and the ability to continually improve these areas will be key to success as we scale our environments to meet customer demand.

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 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.
