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 2,000+ team members and values that guide a culture where people embrace the belief that everyone can contribute.
This position is remote based.
We're looking for a Product Manager to define and build out GitLab's data framework, allowing our teams to have better data collection and visualization experiences in order to make the right business decisions.
We believe development teams deserve an intuitive, single application that covers the entire DevOps lifecycle and that navigating through the DevOps lifecycle should be a seamless experience. We believe in pushing the boundaries of best-practices, and bringing these to every GitLab user, so that doing the right thing is also the easy, default way of working. As the Product Intelligence Product Manager, it will be your job to ensure GitLab team members have the data they need to make the right decisions.
We know there are a million things we can tweak to improve the data framework at GitLab. It will be your job to figure out which of these to prioritize and implement successfully.
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 and the product handbook to get started.
