We're looking for product managers to help us work on the future of DevOps tools; specifically, building out configuration management and other operations-related features such as feature flags, and ChatOps.
We believe developers deserve an intuitive, single application that covers the complete DevOps lifecycle. We believe running tests is just the beginning of automation. We believe packaging and deploying your code should be automated and repeatable. We believe managing and monitoring your applications and infrastructure should be more than an afterthought. 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. 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.
Work remotely from anywhere in the world. Curious to see what that looks like? Check out our remote manifesto.
Top 10 reasons to work for GitLab:
1. Work with helpful, kind, motivated, and talented people. 2. Work remote so you have no commute and are free to travel and move. 3. Have flexible work hours so you are there for other people and free to plan the day how you like. 4. Everyone works remote, but you don't feel remote. We don't have a head office, so you're not in a satellite office. 5. Work on open source software so you can interact with a large community and can show your work. 6. Work on a product you use every day: we drink our own wine. 7. Work on a product used by lots of people that care about what you do. 8. As a company we contribute more than we take, most of our work is released as the open source GitLab CE. 9. Focused on results, not on long hours, so that you can have a life and don't burn out. 10. Open internal processes: know what you're getting in to and be assured we're thoughtful and effective.

You are not (solely) responsible for:
Shipping in time. As a PM you are part of a team that delivers a change, the team is responsible for shipping in time, not you.
A team of engineers. PMs at GitLab do not manage people, they manage the product. You'll be required to take the lead in decisions about the product, but it's not your role to manage the people that build the product.
Capacity and availability planning. You will work together with engineering managers on schedules and planning: you prioritize, the engineering managers determine how much can be scheduled.
