Vulnerability Research Management Roles at GitLab
GitLab is building a research team that will focus on improving GitLab’s security detection capabilities, including SAST/DAST and future products. For more information about our security products, please review: https://about.gitlab.com/direction/secure/ and https://about.gitlab.com/direction/defend/
This team will work directly with the GitLab Security, Development, and Product teams to build, tune and improve the efficacy of GitLab’s stand-alone detection products.
Managers in the Security Department at GitLab see the team as their product. While they are technically credible and know the details of what vulnerability research 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 security commitments and are always looking to improve productivity. They must also coordinate across departments to accomplish collaborative goals.

GitLab Inc. is a company based on the GitLab open-source project. GitLab is
a community project to which over 2,200 people worldwide have contributed.
We are an active participant in this community, trying to serve its needs
and lead by example. We have one vision: everyone can
contribute to all digital content, and our mission is to change all creative
work from read-only to read-write so that everyone can contribute.

efficiency, self-learning, frugality, collaboration, directness, kindness, diversity, inclusion and belonging,
boring solutions, and quirkiness. If these values match your personality,

primer to learn more. Open source is our culture, our way of
life, our story, and what makes us truly unique.
