The Backend Engineer Fulfilment position is remote based.

What it’s like to work here at GitLab:

The culture here at GitLab is something we’re incredibly proud of. Because GitLabbers are currently located in over 56 different countries, you’ll spend your time collaborating with kind, talented, and motivated colleagues from across the globe. Some of the benefits you’ll be entitled to vary by the region or country you’re in. However, all GitLabbers are fully remote and receive a "no ask, must tell" paid-time-off policy, where we don’t count the number of days you take off annually. You can work incredibly flexible hours, enabled by our synchronous approach to communication.

We’ll also help you set up your home office environment, cover your home internet subscription, pay for your membership to a co-working space, and contribute to the travel costs associated with meeting other GitLab employees across the world. Also, every year or so, we’ll invite you to our Contribute event

 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.

The Fulfillment Team at GitLab focuses on creating and supporting the experiences that enable our customers to purchase, upgrade, downgrade, and renew licenses and subscriptions. We are constantly striving to make the billing and payment processes simple, intuitive, and stress-free for our customers and GitLab team members. We believe that engaging in business transactions with GitLab should be minimally invasive and when noticed, should be a positive, empowering, and user-friendly experience.
 
The Fulfillment team is responsible for: 

Licensing - Covers all aspects of our licensing model, from how we count seats and conduct true-up to how we count active seats and keep the customer informed on their seat utilisation.

Transactions - How customers pay for GitLab. Licensing is about how we package GitLab as an offering, whereas Transactions is about how we fulfil those business relationships and how we make doing business with GitLab a great experience for both self-managed and GitLab.com.
