About HashiCorp

At HashiCorp, we build the infrastructure that enables innovation. Our suite of multi-cloud infrastructure automation products are the underpinnings of the largest enterprises in the world, who rely on our solutions to provision, secure, connect, and run their critical applications to deliver crucial services, communications tools, and entertainment platforms to the world. We’re building a once-in-a-generation infrastructure company with a unique approach: rather than focusing on specific technologies, we build products and solutions that support real-world workflows spanning the multiple cloud environments that nearly every organization worldwide is using today.

The Platform Services team is composed of Site Reliability Engineers and distributed systems engineers working on the Terraform Cloud hosted service. Our team ensures that the platform’s underlying infrastructure, data stores, and core foundational services are reliable, performant, and robust.

We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our team. The Engineers on our team own the core foundational services that power the entire Terraform Cloud hosted service. These mission-critical services and data stores compose the Terraform plan and apply pipeline, and are used by every Terraform run which hits Terraform Cloud.

An ideal candidate will have experience building distributed systems at scale, a principled approach to service security, and an interest in working closely with both infrastructure and feature teams to solve complex problems that span several services.

If you fit this profile, we’d love to meet you! We have a large footprint and a quickly-growing user base, with lots of interesting problems and plenty of opportunities for growth and development.


In this role, you can expect to:

  • Develop and maintain the Platform Engineering core services written in Golang
  • Work with the infrastructure team to define the next-generation architecture of the Terraform Cloud platform
  • Establish and foster best practices around service security and performance
  • Investigate problems, performance bottlenecks, and orchestration issues which span multiple services


You probably have:

  • Experience building and scaling distributed, highly-available systems
  • Solid knowledge with one systems language, and ability to code in several more (our foundational services are written in Go)
  • Experience debugging performance bottlenecks for live services and systems
  • Familiarity with best practices for application and infrastructure security

How We Work

At HashiCorp, we operate according to a strong set of company principles, many of which are described in The Tao of HashiCorp. We value top-notch 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, and this role is no exception. 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.
