Posted on March 3rd, 2019

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 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.
