Frontend Engineer, Manage:Auth at GitLab (Remote)
GitLab's 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 1,400+ team members and values that guide a culture where people embrace the belief that everyone can contribute.
GitLab is looking to fill their Frontend Engineer position within the Manage:Auth team. In this role you'll be working on critical, foundational parts of the application, responsible for handling the authentication and authorization of secure, but accessible resources.About the Auth group
The Auth group is focused on building and supporting all use-cases related to authenticating and authorizing users and groups and providing them with access to important resources. With such essential workflows and capabilities, it’s vital we provide a great user experience so we provide users with the tools they need to stay secure and scalable.
What we do is important for groups of any size, but especially so for large enterprises or companies operating in regulated environments. Things such as on-/offboarding employees should be automatable, and sensitive information should not be accessed by unauthorized users.
In the Manage:Auth part of GitLab, there’s a great opportunity for bringing our existing workflows to the modern state of frontend engineering. Cascading settings, refining UX workflows for multi-factor authentication, and access restriction, are some of the latest initiatives we’ve pursued to make our product even more lovable by providing smooth and performant solutions.
