Senior Product Manager, Product Ops
2 weeks ago
Job type: Full-time
Product Managers at GitLab have a unique opportunity to define the future of the entire DevOps lifecycle. We are working on a single application that allows developers to invent, create, and deploy 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 encourage people to apply even if they don't have an established background in this role yet, but they feel this page describes exactly what they have a strong attitude for. Product managers always start off somewhere, and it's ok if that somewhere is GitLab.
We recommend looking at our about page and at the product handbook to get started.
