GitLab is looking for a Backend Engineer for each of the teams (License, Purchase, and Utilization) within the Fulfillment Sub-department who will focus on features and services which enable our customers to purchase GitLab licenses and products, provisioning, manage licenses for both self-managed and SaaS (including Cloud License activation/sync and provisioning of legacy licenses), and tooling that enables customers to get the most out of their subscription. Most backend developers work on all aspects of GitLab, building features, and generally improving the application.

In this role, you will develop features which span multiple systems working across the boundaries between GitLab, our suite of customer management applications, and third-party providers to provide a world-class subscription management experience for GitLab customers.

The Fulfillment Sub-department consists of 4 teams which manage the subscription purchase and renewal lifecycle, and the Purchase Backend team collaborates closely with Front Engineers to provide a delightful user experience to our customers.
