In keeping with our values of results, freedom, efficiency, frugality, and boring solutions, we expect GitLab team members to take responsibility to determine what they need to purchase or expense in order to do their jobs effectively. We don't want you to have to wait with getting the items that you need to get your job done. You most likely know better than anyone else what the items are that you need to be successful in your job.
The guidelines below describe what people in our team commonly expense. Some of the items below have the average amount that folks typically spend on them as a helpful guide. If you need to spend more to get the right tool for you to work productively, please do so. If you are uncertain about how much reasonable to spend on a more expensive item, please reach out to your manager and ask for help.
(Note: All employees and contractors must protect our company assets, such as equipment, inventory, supplies, cash, and information. Treat company assets with the same care you would if they were your own. No employee or contractor may commit theft, fraud or embezzlement, or misuse company property.)
For further information on Expenses, visit the Expenses handbook section.
The aforementioned section covers details including:
These instructions apply if a team member is unable to purchase items, for whatever reason.
Mileage is reimbursed according to local law: [US rate per mile] (http://www.irs.gov/Tax-Professionals/Standard-Mileage-Rates), [rate per km in the Netherlands] (http://www.belastingdienst.nl/wps/wcm/connect/bldcontentnl/belastingdienst/zakelijk/auto_en_vervoer/auto_van_de_onderneming/autokosten/u_rijdt_in_uw_eign_auto) , or [rate in Belgium] (https://fedweb/belgium.be/nl/verloning_en_voordelen/vergoedingen/vergoeding-voor-reiskosten) . Add a screenshot of a map to the expense in Expensify indicating the mileage.
At GitLab the lingua franca is US English, when English is not your native language it can limit you in expressing yourself.
