GitLab’s purpose is to help people increase their lifetime earnings through access to opportunities and the DevSecOps platform.
GitLab's purpose lies at the intersection of these four circles.
Our knowledge sharing empowers everyone, not only to GitLab team members but also the world, through inclusive learning opportunities, mentorship programs, and transparently sharing how we operate.
We empower how people work by providing thought leadership on remote work which spreads job opportunities more evenly across geographies, contributions to open source, and job access programs.
The DevSecOps Platform brings together developers, operations and security professionals and empowers them to innovate at new levels– making it faster, more secure, and more accessible.
Our purpose is on a 30 year cadence
Our purpose informs our mission, and our mission is the way we realize our purpose. Our mission is to make it so everyone can contribute by using our product, to our product, and to our company.
By making it so everyone can contribute, we increase access for people to be creators. With more contributors and more creators, we increase both the volume and velocity of innovation. More innovation drives economic progress that benefits consumers, businesses, and the economy as a whole. As a result, innovation both directly and indirectly increases the total volume of available opportunities and average value of each individual opportunity.
Access to a broader set of more valuable opportunities ultimately increases people's lifetime earnings.
Our mission is on the same 30 year cadence as our purpose. Our purpose informs our mission, which directly or indirectly informs the rest of the items in our cadence. As a result, our purpose indirectly informs all of the items in our cadence, and progress for the items on our cadence page like Yearlies creates progress for both our mission and purpose.
