This position is remote based.
 
At GitLab, developers are independent and self-organized individual contributors who work together as a tight team in a remote and agile way.  Most backend developers work on all aspects of GitLab, building features, fixing bugs, and generally improving the application. 
 

CD Backend Developers are primarily tasked with improving the Continuous Deployment (CD) functionality in GitLab. Engineers should be willing to learn Kubernetes and Container Technology.  We, as a team, cover end-to-end integration of CD in GitLab, with components being written in Rails and Go. We work on a scale of processing a few million of CI/CD jobs on GitLab.com monthly.

    • Manage and review code contributed by the rest of the community and work with them to get it ready for production.
    • Create and maintain documentation around features and configuration to save our users time.
    • Take initiative in improving the software in small or large ways to address pain points in your own experience as a developer.
    • Keep code easy to maintain and keep it easy for others to contribute code to GitLab.
    • Help grow the team by participating in technical interviews.
