This position is remote based.
 
We're looking for product managers that can help us work on the future of developer tools.

Specifically, we're looking for a PM to drive improvements to the responsiveness and scalability of GitLab, and establish best practices for performance oriented development. This role will involve identifying and prioritizing performance bottlenecks, establishing a performance testing framework, and leading needed architectural changes for additional scalability.

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 control, authentication, and measurement of DevOps efficiency. 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.
