The RetailMeNot Labs group is a small team with a big mission: "Discover new, easy ways to save consumers money." Part of this discovery means doing a lot of rapid prototyping and testing, often at scale with RetailMeNot's audience. As such, they place a premium on efficient, scalable, and ergonomic tools and platforms. Naturally, GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine) stood out as good fit. In this talk, Shaun and Tom will discuss how their team leverages GCP, Kubernetes, Gitlab, and their own tools to ensure RetailMeNot stays on the cutting edge of savings.
Shaun Dubuque: Veteran Software Engineer that has been with the Labs team from the start and now leads their engineering efforts.
Tom Dickman: Senior Software Engineer on RetailMeNot’s Labs team. He’s passionate about using Kubernetes to enable rapid application development.
