The GitLab DevOps platform empowers 100,000+ organizations to deliver software faster and more efficiently. We are one of the world’s largest all-remote companies with 1,800+ team members and values that guide a culture where people embrace the belief that everyone can contribute.

 
This position is remote based. Please note that the openings listed in this posting will be updated periodically as roles are opened or closed. 
 
We're looking for Product Managers that can help us work on the future of developer tools. This post is our general inquiry post and will result in a resume review and if appropriate a follow up conversation to help target your application to a specific role.
 
We believe developers deserve an intuitive, single application that covers the entire DevOps lifecycle. We believe running tests is just the beginning of automation. We believe deploying your code should be automated and repeatable, and most of all, easy. We believe in pushing the boundaries of best-practices, and bringing these to every developer, so that doing the right thing is also the easy, default way of working.
 
We know there are a million things we can and want to improve about GitLab's support for DevOps workflows. It'll be your job to work out what we are going to do and how.
 
We work in quite a unique way at GitLab, where lots of flexibility and independence is mixed with a high paced, pragmatic way of working. And everything we do is in the open.

We recommend looking at our company page, the product handbook, and our product categories to get started.

Responsibilities
  • Drive the product in the right direction
    • Build an effective roadmap to prioritize important features properly
    • Take high-level feature proposals and customer problems and break them into small iterations that engineering can work on
    • Balance new features, improvements, and bugfixes to ensure a high velocity and a stable product
    • Consider the business impact, ROI, and other implications when taking important decisions
  • Take an active role in defining the future
    • Contribute to the product vision, together with the Head of Product and VP of Product
    • Create and maintain a vision for your product area
    • Create and maintain the vision for each product category

    • Follow innovation in your product area
    • Communicate and evangelize your product vision internally and among the wider community
  • Manage the product lifecycle end-to-end
    • Follow feature development end-to-end; provide guidance and feedback to engineers and designers; ensure everyone is aligned
    • Be the voice of the customer and the subject-matter expert for your group
    • Contribute to documentation, blog posts, demos, and marketing materials for product features

You are not (solely) responsible for:

  • Knowledge of the DevOps tool market
  • Strong technically: you understand how software is built, packaged, deployed and operated
  • Passion for design and usability

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.

Reshmi

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.

Chloe

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.

Wayne

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.
