This Product Designer position for our Runner & Testing stages is 100% remote.
It’s an exciting time to join our team. We’re the world’s largest all-remote company, and we’ve been intentionally building our culture this way from the start. With more than 1,200 team members in 65+ countries, GitLab is a place where you can contribute from almost anywhere. We are an ambitious, productive team that embraces a set of shared values in everything we do.
You’ll play a key role in maturing two complex stage groups.
For the Testing stage, your work will make software teams feel confident that the changes they introduce into their code are safe and conformant. You’ll work in a cross-functional team to shape the future direction of accessibility, performance, and usability testing functionality in our product.
With the Runner stage, you’ll help shape the future of enterprise management of a functionality that is the foundation of our CI tooling. The work you’ll do with the Runner team will ensure we continue to collect and analyze customer and community feedback to understand users’ pain points with installing, managing, and using GitLab Runners at scale. Outside of work on your stage groups, you’ll also contribute to our Pajamas design system.
The culture here at GitLab is something we’re incredibly proud of. Some of the benefits you’ll be entitled to vary by the region or country you’re in. However, all GitLab team members are fully remote and receive a “no ask, must tell” paid-time-off policy, where we don’t count the number of days you take off annually — instead, we focus on your results. You can work the hours you choose, enabled by our asynchronous approach to communication. You can also expect stock options and a competitive salary. Our compensation calculator will be shared with selected candidates before any interview.
Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DIB) are fundamental to the success of GitLab. We want to infuse DIB in every way possible and in all that we do. We strive to create a transparent environment where all team members around the world feel that their voices are heard and welcomed. We also aim to be a place where people can show up as their full selves each day and contribute their best. With more than 100,000 organizations using GitLab, our goal is to have a team that is representative of our users.
