Fullstack Engineer Incubation: DevOps for Salesforce
Our entire handbook is public. You can find the details of our vision & direction , read through the direction of our Incubation department , and track the OKRs that guide our Single Engineer Groups (SEG) .
A brief overview:
As a Fullstack Engineer, Senior Fullstack Engineer, or Staff Fullstack Engineer in the Incubation Engineering Department at GitLab, you will be working on projects that are pre-Product/Market fit. Your focus will be on moving fast, shipping, getting feedback, and iterating on ideas that may contribute to our revenue in 3-5 years' time.
We utilize Single Engineer Groups (SEGs) in our Incubation department. Your role will encompass all of product development; from product management to engineering, design, and quality at the smallest scale. You'll learn from, and collaborate with, larger departments at GitLab.
This SEG we're hiring for is focused on our DevOps for Salesforce offering. Our aim with DevOps for Salesforce is to improve GitLab's capabilities for customers deploying applications onto Salesforce by integrating our DevOps capabilities. Our first iteration will be to build visual pipelines specific to the Salesforce CI/CD requirements, and develop community templates that can quickly help developers manage their end to end test and release requirements.
