The Engineering Fellow Shadow Program (formerly known as Engineering Fellow Pairing) allows any GitLab engineer to work together with a Engineering Fellow. Its current iteration is modeled after the CEO Shadow Program, with some exceptions to account for the differences in daily duties of these two roles. The program supports both remote and in-person rotations. Participants will spend a week working with the Engineering Fellows.
The goal of the program is to give GitLab engineers and eligible individuals an overview of and insights into the work of the Engineering Fellows while heping them with their daily work. Engineers will learn how Engineering Fellows think about and see the product, the organization, and how they operate across the company. It should be especially useful for senior technical leaders in Engineering, and allows Engineering Fellows to build rapport with each other.
The Engineering Fellow Shadow Program is not a performance evaluation or the next step to a promotion. Being an Engineering Fellow shadow is not needed to get a promotion or a raise, and should not be a consideration factor for a promotion or raise, as applicants have different eligibilities.
Senior or higher engineers at GitLab are eligible to apply for the Engineering Fellow Shadow Program.
