An overview of this role

This Backend Engineer position for our Verify: Runner group is 100% remote.

As a Backend Engineer in our Verify: Runner group, you'll play a key role on a team whose mission it is to create a build agent that works seamlessly on tomorrow's market-leading computing platforms and the tools to eliminate CI build fleet operational complexity at an enterprise scale. The features in our Verify: Runner group allow our customers to run their GitLab CI operations on a variety of platforms and ecosystems.

Our Verify: Runner group is primarily responsible for the GitLab-Runner. The GitLab-Runner is the interface between the rest of GitLab and a user's CI infrastructure. Whether CI is running on a cluster of Raspberry Pi’s, a super-computer, or, as in the case with GitLab.com, thousands of virtual machines running in the cloud - it’s the GitLab-Runner that makes this happen. Each week GitLab-Runners process millions of jobs for GitLab.com, and our docker images are downloaded 100s-of-millions of times.

What you’ll do  

  • Contribute to the overall direction of GitLab-Runner development.
  • Focus your efforts on GitLab-Runner scalability
  • Help scale the infrastructure of the GitLab-Runners powering GitLab.com.
  • Solve technical problems of medium scope and complexity.
  • Help to define and improve our internal standards for style, maintainability, and best practices for a high-scale web environment. Maintain and advocate for these standards through code review.
  • Represent GitLab and its values in public communication around broader initiatives, specific projects, and community contributions.
  • Confidently ship moderately sized features and improvements with minimal guidance and support from other team members.
  • Collaborate with the team on larger projects.
  • Advocate for improvements to product quality, security, and performance.

You should apply if you bring 

  • Professional experience with Go in a large scale environment.
  • Experience in scaling SaaS products.
  • 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 complex technical, architectural, and/or organizational problems and propose thorough iterative solutions.
  • Experience with performance and optimization problems and a demonstrated ability to both diagnose and prevent these problems.
  • 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.
  • An inclination towards communication, inclusion, and visibility.
  • Self-motivated and self-managing, with strong organizational skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to work closely with other parts of the organization
  • Share our values, and work in accordance with those values

You’ll stand out if you bring

  • Demonstrated experience with any major cloud providers or infrastructure-as-code tools.
  • Demonstrated experience working with Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Demonstrated experience with site reliability
