Developers ♥️ GitStart

Joining GitStart has changed my career, from a C# .Net developer who was working on some small projects in my local country, I have chances to work on larger, more interesting projects from a lot of companies, I have learned a lot about how they manage, organize projects/teams, optimize development / production processes, etc… and a lot of chances to work with great people around the world.

When I started at Gitstart I was very, very junior. It was a steep learning curve. Working with different clients and features required constant learning, but after a year I was a full stack javascript developer, managing clients and reviewing code.

In the course of my few months here, I've learned to find solutions on my own before reaching out for help. It has made me less dependent on another person before unblocking myself.
I've learned faster this way, that most times, the solution you seek is right in your hand - use it.

Gitstart helped me become not just an excellent software engineer but also to shaped me into a rigorous QA engineer through reviewing others PRs and making an efficient system for it. At GitStart it's a fun and a challenging atmosphere that keeps me proactive always.

How to join the GitStart Community

No CV, no timezone nor English requirement. Only code.

When a GitStart instance capacity increases, GitStart Bot automatically creates separate development environments, sends the same tasks to hundreds of engineers, and have them review each other. Highest ranked engineers earn the right to tackle new tickets.

receive sandboxed tasks
Code and review
others

Engineers are dynamically added and removed from an instance depending on their instance performance score. The highest performing engineers all get allocated full time to limit context switching.

Graduate to real tasks and get paid,
or keep practicing

All tickets are reviewed by 4 types of engineers. Owners review architecture and ensure integration. Developers code. Reviewers review. QA test edge cases. Role allocation for engineers averages 50% development, 30% ownership and reviews and 20% QA.

Frequently
asked questions

What is GitStart Bot great for?

GitStart Bot is best used for tickets that are easy to scope and review. Examples:

  • Tech debt: converting JS into TS, increasing test coverage
  • Front-end: building React components
  • Backend: building an API endpoint, building an isolated function of a compiler
What is GitStart Bot not good for?

GitStart Bot is not a fit when tickets are hard to scope and review, such as tickets that:

  • Are not achievable within 5 days of full time work
  • Fill in a knowledge gap - anything you are not able to do yourself and therefore review
  • Require getting on a call
  • Are not about writing code
How precise do ticket specs have to be?

Engineering teams that have gone partially or fully remote typically don't need to change how they write specs. Good tickets:

  • Are completable within 5 working days by a full-time developer
  • Include a clear acceptance criteria (including edge cases)
  • Provide all required assets/secrets/designs
  • Can be executed in isolation, aka with limited to no dependencies
    See real examples at this link
What technologies are supported?

GitStart Bot works with most modern technologies used by VC backed ventures. Acceleration is especially fast for JS frameworks and libraries (Node, React, Next, Vue, vanilla JS, Typescript, etc), but engineers have also used it to build things like a compiler in C++.
Send us a message if your technologies are not mentioned in this non exhaustive list.

What tools do you integrate with?

  • Ticketing system: all major ones, such as Jira, Github Issues and Linear
  • Git provider: GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket.
    If yours is not in this list, let us know. Building an integration typically takes less than a week.
How quickly can GitStart scale up or down?

Capacity automatically scales up and down with your needs. Automated coding competitions with hundreds of engineers mixed with automated code reviews and code pairing matching typically enable GitStart to double capacity every two to three weeks.

Do I need to speak with anyone?

No interaction is required. At the same time, engineers powering the GitStart Bot are available if need be.

Who owns the code GitStart writes for me?

We are buddhism influenced engineers: we want to do things right. The code GitStart Bot generates belongs to you. GitStart voids 100% of its intellectual property to all code, forever and for all jurisdictions. Terms and conditions are intentionally written to strongly favour users to make legal back and forth unnecessary.

How safe is my data?

Your data is safe as GitStart developers can never access it. A hard requirement to install the GitStart Bot is to have a staging environment.

Your code is safe with GitSlice (see "No need to trust us with your code" section).

Your tickets are safe as the GitStart Bot only pulls in the tickets it is assigned to.

Can you fulfil enterprise level security requirements?

Yes. GitStart powers enterprise clients in industries like finance, insurance and blockchain.

On top of GitSlice, GitStart can ensure
military grade security with features such as online IDE development, in partnership with GitPod, to ensure code never leaves your systems, and NDA signature + personal audit log for every engineer.

How do you define "good code quality"?

We don't, you do.

You only pay for PRs you merge. If a PR does not meet your quality standards, you are welcome to reject it or add review comments.

Billing stops at the first review cycle: all updates and bug fixes, as long as they are in scope, are free. On average, 85% of PRs are merged within the first review cycle, which is slightly higher that our users' internal teams' average.

How do you ensure consistent code quality?

Quality is ensured in two main ways: optimal talent allocation and Review driven development.

Optimal talent allocation: Engineers are dynamically added and removed from an instance depending on their instance performance score. The highest performing engineers all get allocated full time to limit context switching.

Review driven development: GitStart uses review driven development All tickets are reviewed by 4 types of engineers. Owners review architecture and ensure integration. Developers code. Reviewers review. QA test edge cases.
Role allocation for engineers averages 50% development, 30% ownership and reviews and 20% QA.

What if GitStart Bot introduces bugs?

All updates and bug fixes, as long as they are in scope, are free.

How does billing work?

Top up credits. Every PR comes with a credit estimate based on productive hours. Billing stops during the first review cycle - all bug fixes and updates are free, as long as they are in scope and reported within 1 week of PR submission. Your credit balance is only deducted when you merge a PR. Unused credits roll on forever and are fully refundable.

What are productive hours?

We couldn't offer enough transparency and fairness with off the shelf tools, so we built our own time tracking technology to differentiate productive hours (hours spent speccing, coding and code reviewing) from the rest (meetings, learning, breaks, etc). Our estimates only ever include productive time.

Also, productive hours are converted into mid-level engineer productive hours using each developer's performance coefficient.

Do credits expire?

Unused credits roll on forever and are fully refundable.
