GitLab Runner is an application that works with GitLab CI/CD to run jobs in a pipeline. Each week, GitLab Runners process millions of jobs for gitlab.com. The Runner service is written in Go.
Currently, we have a single Runner group focused on the application development and management of the infrastructure needs of our shared runners used to run CI/CD jobs on gitlab.com. In order to further invest in the growth of the Runner group, we are creating a second Runner team focused on supporting these shared runners, and will be hiring an Engineering Manager to help lead the Engineering effort.
