Managers in the engineering department at GitLab see the team as their product. While they are technically credible and know the details of what fullstack engineers work on, their time is spent hiring a world-class team and putting them in the best position to succeed. They own the delivery of product commitments and are always looking to improve productivity. They must also coordinate across departments to accomplish collaborative goals.
Engineering Managers in the Growth department own the delivery of features and improvements that aim to scale GitLab usage by connecting users to the existing value that GitLab already delivers. The Growth department consists of two Engineering Managers, one responsible for Acquisition and Conversion, and one for Expansion and Retention. They lead teams of fullstack engineers that work across the breadth of the GitLab project in order to make the necessary frontend and backend changes to test hypothesis that drive improvement in user metrics. These teams work closely with their counterparts in the Product team to analyze the entire customer journey from acquisition of a customer, to the flow across multiple GitLab features, and even reactivation of lost users.
The Manager, Engineering (Growth) is a grade 8.
