Jeremy's README

Hi, I’m Jeremy. I’m currently a Group Product Manager for the Manage stage. This page is intended to help others understand what it might be like to work with me, especially people who haven’t worked with me before.

It’s also a well-intentioned effort at building some trust by being intentionally vulnerable, and to share my ideas of a good working relationship to reduce the anxiety of people who might be on my team.

Please feel free to contribute to this page by opening a merge request.

About me

While all of GitLab’s values are extremely important to me, our values of collaboration, diversity and inclusion, and transparency are particularly dear to me.

In the spirit of transparency, you can find my most recent 360 feedback from January 2019 here.

My role as Group Manager

If you’re on my team, I’m here to support you, provide focus and clarity on our most important problems, and to advocate for you and the things you ship. I serve you; you work for GitLab - not me - and we should optimize the things we do for the organization, not a particular person or team.

First and foremost, I’m here to help you shine by enabling your success in your current role. I hope to do this in a few ways:

I also want to be an avid supporter of your career path. Your career belongs to you, and I want to cheerlead and support you on your path - whether it’s continuing deeper into product management, people management, or not:
