The GitLab DevOps platform empowers 100,000+ organizations to deliver software faster and more efficiently. We are one of the world’s largest all-remote companies with 2,000+ team members and values that guide a culture where people embrace the belief that everyone can contribute.
This Senior Fullstack Engineer, Data Science (Ruby on Rails) position is 100% remote. The role will be under the Data Science section and in the Anti-Abuse team.
About the team: Anti-Abuse
Help us make abuse manageable. The goal of the Anti-Abuse team is to build services to help mitigate bad actors from entering the system, and tools to help identify and remove bad actors when they do slip through. Our products are written for everyone from GitLab employees to open-source users.
We’re constantly dealing with different attack vectors, and because of that, not only do we get to work in many different areas of the codebase, but also, there will always be something new to work on. If you want to write rules to capture a new attack vector one day and start a Rails and Vue.js feature the next, then this is the team for you.
Beyond the features requested from Product, the anti-abuse team also receives security related bugs, so come ready to tighten the screws. We’ve got an amazing security counterpart that helps us identify holes and makes recommendations on patching them up.
If the following things sound familiar to you: 2FA, trust scores, cryptomining, automatic banning, Captcha, we’d love to chat with you.
This team writes code in Ruby on Rails, Vue.js and Go.
