An Insider's view of GitLab

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We typically collaborate with the broader customer success team, sales teams & product teams to ensure that the customer is successful when partnering with us. We heavily rely on slack channels, docs, issues for async collaboration. We also initiate meetings at times when we are looking to resolve certain issues or brainstorm in a short time frame.


Manager, Enterprise Solution Architecture

How does the company support your career growth?

From starting a new role, to being promoted in that role twice now, GitLab has provided me with the resources and support I need to drive my own professional growth. One of the most inspiring things I discovered here is how genuinely team members want to help their colleagues succeed, and all you have to do is put in the work and ask for help.


Senior Technical Account Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I created the engineering director shadow program so that anyone at GitLab can shadow me for one week. This allows the shadow to learn the perspective and workload of an engineering director while also enabling them to learn how I make decisions and receive mentoring. It also allows me to get some “reverse mentoring” on my communication.


Director, Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

The most exciting projects I get the opportunity to work on during my day is partnering with large enterprise companies using GitLab to solve their problems and optimize their use of the solution. I greatly enjoy helping them with their DevOps transformation and ensuring that they reap the greatest possible return on their investment in GitLab.
