Creator pairing is a program that allows any GitLab engineer to work together with GitLab co-founder Dmitriy Zaporozhets (DZ) from the same physical location for a week.
The goal of the program is to help DZ during his work as a fellow of initial delight. As an additional benefit, a co-worker will learn about how DZ thinks and sees the product.
Any senior or higher backend or frontend engineer at GitLab.

Q: Is a visa to travel into Ukraine?
A: Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine can advise if a visa is necessary based on your country of origin.

A: In most cases the participant will book their flight to Ukraine or Cyprus, but the EBA to Engineering is available to assist.

This can vary for each rotation even if the pairing is taking place in the same city.
Q: Who will book hotel or accommodations for the rotation?
A: EBA to Engineering can book a hotel or AirBnB on behalf of the participants. If a participant would like to book their own accommodations this is perfectly acceptable, please communicate in the #creator-pairing Slack channel to advise.
