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.
