Fullstack Engineer - Product Analytics

Posted on August 4th, 2021 | 17 days left to apply | 98 views

Those in Single Engineer Groups (SEG) at GitLab work in the engineering department to initiate a planned or minimal maturity category into the GitLab project.  

At GitLab, we believe in the power of a single engineer to accomplish amazing feats. Many open source projects started with a single engineer’s decision to build around a problem they personally experienced. For instance, Continuous Integration by DZ and GitLab Runner by Kamil. In single engineer groups, we create room for this energy.

We can guarantee a higher rate of success by incubating ideas inside our larger organization and existing code base while limiting the negative aspects of friction that come from a larger organization. A few benefits of SEG include:

  1. There are lots of decisions to be made, which happen more effectively in a single brain.
  2. There is not enough code for multiple people to work on without running into merge conflicts.
  3. Starting work earlier allows for more time for other people to contribute. We need to have a head start many years ahead of commercialization.

This Senior/Staff Fullstack Engineer  will be working in the Product Analytics SEG.
