Every day is different in the Package stage! One day you'll be developing support for a new package format, the next you'll be finding a way to scale a feature to manage millions of requests per minute. The work goes beyond just building a package registry to building cutting edge features that tie package management back into the rest of GitLab through features like CI/CD and storage management.

But writing code isn't the only thing you'll be doing. You'll be able to break up your day by reviewing code for other GitLab engineers and open source contributors, fielding questions from users and customers, participating in engineering-wide discussions and initiatives, and of course, planning the future work and vision for the Package stage by working directly with engineering. product management, UX, and quality.

  • Contribute to the overall direction of the Package group
  • Play a key role in maturing and scale the Package registry offering to ensure enterprise readiness and adoption.
  • Ship moderately sized features and improvements with minimal guidance and support from other team members. Collaborate with the team on larger projects.
  • Solve technical problems of high scope and complexity with boring solutions. Everyone is responsible for finding ways to simplify and improve the features we own.
  • Consider user experience throughout your work to help make every feature lovable.
  • 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.
  • Craft code that meets our internal standards for style, maintainability, and best practices for a high-scale web environment. 
  • Maintain and advocate for high standards through code review changes submitted by other engineers or community contributors
  • Recognize impediments to our efficiency as a team, and propose and implement solutions.
  • Grow your skills in Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and Git.
  • Represent GitLab and its values in public communication around broader initiatives, specific projects, and community contributions.
  • Provide mentorship for Junior and Intermediate Engineers on your team to help them grow in their technical responsibilities and remove blockers.
  • Engage in the trainee maintainer program at your own comfortable pace while striving to become a full-fledged project maintainer.
