Frontend Engineer, Defend

Remote Defend

This position is remote based.

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 Defend Team is responsible for the defend features in the GitLab platform, and maps to the defend stage. You can learn more about our approach on the vision for defend.  The features provided by the Defend Team are mostly present at the deployment level. 

This team focuses on security defend features for GitLab (including web application firewall, threat detection, container security, network security, and vulnerability management).

  • You’ll learn, collaborate and teach other Frontend Engineers. Everyone can contribute something new to the team regardless of how long they’ve been in the industry.
  • You’ll fix prioritized issues from the issue tracker. These are typically bugs listed in a GitLab issue with an attached severity and priority label.
  • You'll write high-quality code to complete scheduled direction issues assigned by your frontend engineering manager.
