  • This Product Designer or Senior Product Designer position for our Compliance group is 100% remote.

    A brief overview:

    GitLab is building an open-source, single application for the entire software development lifecycle—from project planning and source code management to CI/CD, monitoring, and security.

    We started 2019 with a team of 15 Product Designers and Researchers. Right now, we’re in a period of growth, we’ve more than doubled the size of the Product Design team, and we’ve increased the number of GitLab employees from 400 to over 1100 this financial year, too.

    At GitLab, we live and breathe open source principles. This means our entire handbook is online, and with a few clicks, you can find the details of future releases, check out our past releases, and see an overview of the product vision you’d contribute to when working here.

    As a Product Designer at GitLab, you will be embedded in our Compliance group. It’s a complex area where you’ll be tasked with improving the controls we provide to support our customers to help them manage their compliance posture within GitLab. You'll be designing new features and experiences to improve the quality of life for customers who operate within regulated environments.

    What you can expect in a Product Designer, Compliance role at GitLab:
    • You’ll be tasked with bettering our product for users who rely on our compliance features. The work you’ll do will enable greater adoption of our product within the enterprise space and impact users across a range of industries, from healthcare to manufacturing.
    • You’ll collaborate with a Product Manager to define the priorities, roadmap, and overall strategy for the future of Compliance within our product.
    • You'll work alongside Product Managers and UX Researchers to understand the needs of our users to shape how compliance features underpin the work within regulated industries.
    • You’ll come together with our Technical Writers to better our compliance documentation and in-product content.
    • You’ll collaborate with cross-functional partners to uncover and understand the complexities and limitations of our current compliance tools, advocating for the end-user in all areas, including documentation, ease of use, and visualization of key messaging.
    • You’ll utilize wireframes, prototypes, user flows, mockups, high-fidelity visual designs, or any other artifacts you believe are necessary to convey your design thinking and ideas.
    • You’ll engage with our user base and the wider GitLab community to understand their pain points and work toward long-term fixes that enable them to succeed with their goals.
    • You’ll undertake usability testing to validate your thinking, collaborate with our UX Researchers on generative research, and you’ll share findings with the wider team in our research repo, ensuring recommendations are communicated effectively across our organization.
    • You’ll contribute compliance patterns to our Design System, alongside the rest of the UX department, and the GitLab community as a whole.
    Projects you might work on in our Compliance group:

    You’ll spend your time at GitLab collaborating with a cross-functional team. You may work on features that bring compliance checks into merge requests, a dashboard to give users insight into their overall compliance controls, or even build features that enable code to be audited, traceable, and reported on. To be successful, you’ll consider many edge cases while understanding the needs of a wide range of personas across a breadth of industries. Outside of work on our compliance tools, you’ll also contribute to our Pajamas design system and design culture here at GitLab.

    You should apply if:
    • You’ve got experience designing developer tooling, enterprise software, or complex web applications that are built for technical users.
    • You’ve got some experience designing compliance experiences, or knowledge of the compliance industry.
    • You’ve got experience working on product strategy and product design for a complex enterprise application or SaaS tool.
    • You enjoy getting involved in research and usability testing, and you continually look to improve your user research abilities.
    • You want to design for a complex product with technical users who have continually evolving needs.
    • You’ve got experience applying your product design skills across user research, UX strategy, wireframing, prototyping, product strategy, and visual design, within a complex domain.
    • The idea of playing a key part in the evolution of our Pajamas Design System is truly exciting to you.
    • You understand frontend code or the limitations of frontend technology. You can demonstrate this through your hands-on coding skills with HTML/CSS/JS, your knowledge of Git, or by showing us you have a deep understanding of the needs of engineers you’ve worked with previously.
    • Our values of collaboration, results, efficiency, diversity, iteration, and transparency resonate with you.
    • You'll thrive in an environment where self-learning and self-service is encouraged and instilled as a part of our culture.

    The culture here at GitLab is something we’re incredibly proud of. Because GitLabbers are currently located in over 60 different countries, you’ll spend your time collaborating with kind, talented, and motivated colleagues from across the globe.

    Some of the benefits you’ll be entitled to vary by the region or country you’re in. However, all GitLabbers are fully remote and receive a "no ask, must tell" paid-time-off policy, where we don’t count the number of days you take off annually. You can work incredibly flexible hours, enabled by our asynchronous approach to communication. We’ll also help you set up your home office environment, pay for your membership to a co-working space and contribute to the travel costs associated with meeting other GitLab team members across the world. Also, every year or so, we’ll invite you to our Contribute event.

    The Role: Product Manager

    ABOUT STRONGDM

    strongDM is a customer-first company that has a rabid fan base. When was the last time you heard things like:

    Splunk's CISO Joel Fulton says "strongDM gives you what you can’t get any other way- the ability to see what happens, replay and analyze incidents."

    Chef's co-founder Adam Jacob says "strongDM takes the friction out of getting staff access to the systems they need."

    We built a technical product for technical buyers who have a high bar and low tolerance for sales spin. Customers love us because:

    The product rocks: strongDM fundamentally changes the relationship between InfoSec, DevOps, and end users. Enforce the controls security needs while making it easier to facilitate access.

    Customers trust us: we built a technical product for technical buyers. We do not use jargon. There is no alternative but to always be technically accurate. We are not afraid to admit product gaps.

    We’re real humans: we built a serious product without taking ourselves too seriously. Each member of the team is deadly good at their job, and yet we crack jokes on the phone with customers.

    WHAT YOU’LL DO

    As it says above :) Product is one of the three fundamental tenets of the strongDM business. It needs to work: seamlessly, effectively, and confidently. It’s written by engineers, for engineers. It’s outrageously difficult to build and yet must be the polar opposite to use.

    Welcome to the Product Management at strongDM! You ensure that what the Technical Account Management and Support Teams hear day-to-day gets integrated into the product. You advocate for trends which only you can see (Kubernetes wasn’t in product workloads for years until it was, overnight). You talk to customers. You talk to everyone. You read all the things. You advocate for what we build, when we build, and how we build (in tandem with a Product Designer). Product starts and stops with you.

    REQUIREMENTS:

    • Manage technical software products from planning to production

    • Know what you don’t know… get to know our customers, articulate their problems, and dig in deep to understand exactly what they need (not necessarily what they think they need)

    • 2 - 5 years building or PMing a technical product

    • An outrageously good nose for superb end user experience

    • You don’t need to code, but you need to quickly gain an in-depth understanding of software systems, understand and weigh in on trade-offs, make meaningful contributions to discussions on software architecture, security, etc. So… experience as a software engineer or equivalent would be OUTSTANDING :)

    • Familiarity with security, compliance, infrastructure, networking, or auditing products a strong plus.

    • Understand developer-centric products and all the requisite implications of marketing to that buyer

    • Can see the forest through the trees - yes, you’re outlining features, but we need solid business judgment and justification too

    • Gets stuff done, achieving significant results under tight timeframes. We all pull our own weight here.

    • Comfortable interacting with customers and coworkers alike

    • Humble - we all make mistakes. Every single one of us.

    COMPENSATION:

    • Industry-standard base

    • Extremely competitive benefits, including:

    • Medical, dental, and vision insurance

    • 401k, HSA, FSA, short / long-term disability, 3 month parental leave

    • 3 weeks PTO + standard holidays

    • Equity in a fast-growing startup

    • No travel required
