Job Description

GitHub is looking for a Partner Engineer to join the Partner Engineering team embedded within Ecosystem Engineering. Our Partner Engineers are passionate about helping our customers and partners successfully integrate with the GitHub Platform and join our growing Ecosystem of powerful integrations.

Our partners build best-in-class developer tools.

You'll do this remotely, on-site with integrators, and in cooperation with your Ecosystem colleagues. This is an opportunity to use both your deep technical expertise with your passion for helping tackle real problems for real businesses on the largest software development platform in the world.


  • You'll deeply understand the GitHub Platform by being the "first line" consumer of our Platform and writing novel applications that use our API to demonstrate Platform value to our largest integrators.
  • You'll work directly with our partners' technology teams via real time pair programming both remotely as well as on-site and bring back your insights to the larger Ecosystem group.
  • You'll be the primary technical point of contact in large partnerships with other companies in the software development space and gather technical requirements, do design review, and work with Ecosystem Engineers to ensure the partnership is successful.
  • Develop tools, documentation, and repeatable processes to help scale GitHub's Platform usage
