We specialize in systems, whether it be networking, the Linux kernel, or some more specific interest in scaling, algorithms, or distributed systems.

Job Responsibilities

  • Build: Automating every operational task is a core requirement for Environment Automation SRE. E.g. package updates, configuration changes across all customer platforms without interruptions, tools for automatic provisioning of customer facing services, etc.
  • Maintain: Develop a good (early) warning system and system that allows for reliable and quick maintenance tasks, such as library upgrades, version migrations and similar.
  • Plan: Develop monitoring and alerting systems that predict capacity needs based on customer usage patterns. Plan for new service rollouts, expansion of existing services and preparing advice for customers to optimize their resource consumption.
  • Respond: Respond to user emergencies, platform alerts and support requests.
  • Enhance: Implement new, and update existing security measures for the protection of GitLab infrastructure.
  • Partner: Act as Subject Matter Experts within the GitLab Infrastructure team when interacting with internal and external compliance assessors during certification and recertification of regulatory requirements (ex. FedRAMP, SOC2, ISO).
  • Collaborate: Work with other engineering stakeholders on resolving larger architectural bottlenecks and participate by offering a large scale operational point of view. Work in close collaboration with software development teams to shape the future roadmap and establish strong operational readiness across teams.

  • Interact with various cloud provider systems (e.g. GCP, AWS).

Job Requirements

  • Have experience with Infrastructure as a Code technologies, and libraries powering GitLab.
  • Are able to reason about large systems – how they work and can be operated on a large scale, edge cases, failure modes, behaviors.
  • Are comfortable using GoLang or Ruby.
  • Enjoy working with peers and collaborating across teams to deliver unique solutions to various technical challenges.
  • Are able to leverage GitLab as your day to day go-to tool.
