Sr. Backend IAM Engineer - Cloud Services
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 products to give organizations a consistent way to manage their move to cloud-based IT infrastructures for running their applications. Our products enable companies large and small to mix and match AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and other clouds as well as on-premises environments, easing their ability to deliver new applications for their business.
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.
The Cloud Services team is a newly created division working towards delivering HashiCorp’s software as a managed cloud service. You will be directly contributing in the development of our recently unveiled new flagship HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP), a self-service, fully managed platform offering HashiCorp products as a service to automate infrastructure on any cloud according to the latest best practices.
In this role, you can expect to:
- Build IAM services primarily in Golang.
- Contribute to the design and implementation of extremely large-scale systems.
- Interface directly with internal teams, users, and HashiCorp customers.
- Work with multiple cloud platforms such as AWS, GCP, and Azure.
- Work with HashiCorp products such as Terraform, Consul, Vault, and Nomad.
You may be a good fit for our team if:
- Have worked with OAuth2, SAML or other auth protocols.
- Have integrated with an Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) platform, such as Auth0, Otka, or similar iDPs
- Have integrated with IAM from cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, or GCP
- Familiar with role-based access control (RBAC)
- Experience with audited resource access
- You are familiar with micro-service architectures, and ideally, have seen them in operation on a global scale.
- Have a strong understanding of security principles.
- You are able to knowledgeably discuss design and performance tradeoffs in complex systems.
- You have prior experience working in high performance or distributed systems; while we strive to hire at a variety of experience levels, this particular opening is not well-suited for recent graduates.
