This Software Engineer in Test position for our Verify: Runner team is 100% remote.
GitLab is building an open-source, single application for the entire software development lifecycle—from project planning and source code management to CI/CD, monitoring, and security.
We started 2019 with a team of six SET's. Since then, the Quality department has grown to over twenty team members, and we’ve increased the number of GitLab employees from 400 to over 1100 in the last financial year, too.
At GitLab, we live and breathe open source principles. This means our entire handbook is online, and with a few clicks, you can find the details of future releases, check out our past releases, and see an overview of the product vision you’d contribute to when working here.
As a Software Engineer in Test at GitLab, you will be embedded in our Verify: Runner stage group. You’ll be responsible for expanding on our existing test automation frameworks and improving test coverage across a range of configurations for our GitLab CI execution agent. With shared runners for Mac, improved support for Windows Docker containers, and Autoscaling GitLab Runners on AWS Fargate upcoming in future releases, you’ll lead test automation efforts on new features for our already market-leading CI product.
You’ll spend your time collaborating with a cross-functional team in which our Runner group is included. You could work on projects where you’ll be tasked with standing up a framework for AWS Fargate as we enable autoscaling runners, growing our test coverage across our CI product, or helping to mature our Windows offering.
We’re aware the confidence gap exists so we want to encourage you to apply even if you do not match all of the requirements exactly. The above list is intended to show the kinds of experience and qualities we’re looking for. It is not a complete list of pre-required skills.
The culture here at GitLab is something we’re incredibly proud of. Because our team members are currently located in over 66 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 our team members 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 asynchronous approach to communication. We’ll also help you set up your home office environment, pay for your membership to a co-working space and contribute to the travel costs associated with meeting other GitLab team members across the world. Also, every year or so, we’ll invite you to our Contribute event.
Our hiring process for this Software Engineer in Test position typically follows six stages. The details of this process and the compensation for this role can be found at the bottom of our job family page.
