Our design mission is to bring simple, clean ways to make GitLab the tool of choice for deploying where, when, and how users want.
We work to ensure the best user experience for our users of all knowledge levels, allowing them to successfully apply the continuous methods (Continuous Integration, Delivery, and Deployment) to their software with no third-party application or integration needed.

We follow the workflows outlined in the UX section of the handbook. In addition,
A Definition of Done (DoD) serves as a tool for describing and tracking the expected deliverables, objectives, and the approval process. The DoD consists of a list applied by the Product Designer and Product Manager to issues or epics, in order align and track the entry and exit criteria for design work. This list should be flexible, making this process efficient for their ways of working.
Below you can find the CI/CD stage groups that are currently using a UX DoD:

We work closely with Engineering, Product Management, User Research, Technical Writing, and Product Marketing to make sure we have all the support in uncovering user needs and work to solve them together. Some of our strategic initiatives are:
