President’s Club is synonymous with excellence and rewards individuals for achieving specific goals. This event aligns with our values of Collaboration and Results which helps to attract high-performing Sales Reps and other roles that support the sales efforts and allow the company to grow at the expected rate. At GitLab, this reward is in the form of an incentive trip to celebrate the success of our top Field Sales Professionals and others in the organization who helped support the team throughout the year.
For GitLab's FY21 President's Club, 42 GitLab team members (along with 1 guest per team member) will be rewarded with an invitation to join the President's Club incentive trip in May 2021. Team member start dates must be on or before 2020-08-03 to be eligible and still be employed by GitLab at the time of the incentive trip to receive the benefit.
