Joining the Editor Extensions team provides the opportunity to work on cutting-edge AI enhancement projects, which are at the forefront of technological advancements. The team's focus on expanding IDE support for the VS Code Extension and the Language Server offers an exciting challenge and a chance to contribute to innovative solutions.

Some examples of our projects:

What you’ll do

  • Backend Topics: TypeScript, Node.js, Language Server, Git
  • Frontend Topics: TypeScript, CSS, Vue
  • Advocate for improvements to product quality, security, and performance that have a particular impact across your team.
  • Solve technical problems of high scope and complexity. Exert influence on the overall objectives and long-range goals of your team.
  • Experience with performance and optimization problems, particularly at large scale, and a demonstrated ability to both diagnose and prevent these problems
  • Help to define and improve our internal standards for style, maintainability, and best practices for a high-scale web environment.
  • Maintain and advocate for these standards through code review.
  • Represent GitLab and its values in public communication around broader initiatives, specific projects, and community contributions.
  • Provide mentorship for Junior and Intermediate Engineers on your team to help them grow in their technical responsibilities and remove blockers to their autonomy.
  • Confidently ship moderately sized features and improvements with minimal guidance and support from other team members.
