Senior Backend Engineer, Release

Posted on August 18th, 2021 | 31 days left to apply | 83 views

Gitlab is looking for a Backend Engineer for the Release stage, which is part of GitLab's CI/CD product.  In this role you will develop features in the product areas of Continuous Delivery and Release Automation. Visit our direction page for more information.

The Release group is a combined group which means that all the engineers, Frontend and Backend, report to a single Fullstack Manager, Engineering. The intention of using this model is to increase efficiency and drive results by building a process that supports the whole group's effort towards our goals. Primarily, this means that all engineers participate in conversations in the group and contribute broadly to group process iteration.

Responsibilities

  • Develop features and improvements to the GitLab product in a secure, well-tested, and performant way.
  • Collaborate with Product Management, Product Designers, Frontend Engineers and other stakeholders to maintain a high bar for quality in a fast-paced, iterative environment.
  • Advocate for improvements to product quality, security, and performance.
  • Solve technical problems of moderate scope and complexity.
  • Craft code that meets our internal standards for style, maintainability, and best practices for a high-scale web environment. Maintain and advocate for these standards through code review.
  • Recognize impediments to our efficiency as a team, and propose and implement solutions.
  • Ship small features and improvements with minimal guidance and support from other team members. Collaborate with the team on larger projects.

You should apply if:

  • Professional experience with Ruby on Rails and GraphQL.
  • Proficiency in the English language, both written and verbal, sufficient for success in a remote and largely asynchronous work environment.
  • Demonstrated capacity to clearly and concisely communicate about technical, architectural, and/or organizational problems and propose thorough iterative solutions.
  • Comfort working in a highly agile, intensely iterative software development process.
  • Demonstrated ability to onboard and integrate with an organization long-term.
  • Positive and solution-oriented mindset.
  • Effective communication skills: Regularly achieve consensus with peers, and clear status updates.
  • Aspiration toward building our culture of communication, inclusion, and visibility.
  • Experience owning a project from concept to production, including proposal, discussion, and execution.
  • Self-motivated and self-managing, with strong organizational skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to work closely with other parts of an organization.
  • Share our values, and work in accordance with those values.

You will stand out if:

  • Experience with DevOps tools and application deployment models (Kubernetes, Docker, AWS/GCP/Azure)
  • Experience with the GitLab product as a user or contributor.
  • Experience working remotely
  • Experience working for a product company or startup
