GitLab Product Designer, Secure

Posted on June 25th, 2019

This Product Designer position for our Secure stage group is 100% remote.

A brief overview:

GitLab is building an open source, single application for the entire DevOps 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’re doubling the size of the UX team, and we’re doubling the number of GitLab employees to over 1000 this 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 and an overview of the product vision you’d contribute to when working here.

The goal of GitLab’s Secure stage group is to support users in prioritizing, managing, and solving any security issue that may affect their environment or application.
