Senior Product Manager, Defend
1 month ago
Job type: Full-time
We're looking for additional product managers to cover our newly created Defend Stage of the DevSecOps lifecycle. This candidate will work on one or more of our Defend Stage groups including Runtime Application Security, Threat Management and Application Infrastructure Security.
Product Managers at GitLab have a unique opportunity to define the future of the entire DevSecOps lifecycle. We are working on a single application that allows developers to invent, create, deploy and secure modern applications.
We want to facilitate onboarding to Concurrent DevOps: users may not be aware of its potential, we will show them how easy and powerful it is! We want to support large teams working on mission-critical software across the entire company, and also single developers starting a new visionary project from scratch.
We work in a very unique way at GitLab, where flexibility and independence meet a high paced, pragmatic way of working. And everything we do is in the open.
We are looking for talented product managers that are excited by the idea to contribute to our vision. We know there are a million things we can and want to implement in GitLab. Be the one making decisions.
We recommend looking at our about page and at the product handbook to get started.
