GitLab's 100% remote culture and our workplace methodologies are highly unique. You should not expect to transfer the norms of colocated corporations into a work from anywhere scenario. Those who thrive at GitLab take the opportunity to drop prior workplace baggage at the door, embrace a liberating and empowering set of values, and give themselves permission to truly operate differently.
So differently, in fact, that many of GitLab's most effective processes would be discouraged or forbidden in conventional corporations. It's not a trap. It's the future of work.
Explore the resources below for a deeper understanding of life at GitLab — the world's largest all-remote company.
The freedom to work from anywhere has impacted the lives of many of our team members. Here are some of their stories.
GitLab is embracing an innovative approach to the way we recruit new team members. This shift to an outbound recruiting model will allow us to continue to grow GitLab and build an even more diverse team in the most efficient way possible, while also sustaining our culture. Our Recruiting team will be focused on sourcing the most talented candidates for our open roles.
This model will allow us to focus even more during the interview process on whether candidates truly align with our GitLab values. Our values bind us as a company and make our culture unique. As we continue to grow, it’s more important than ever that future GitLab team members align to those values.
This model also supports GitLab's vision for all-remote: to spread opportunity to underserved locales, and to influence the increase of wages for remote work outside of metro areas.
We’ve seen promising results in the parts of the company where we’ve used this model so far, and we’re excited to have the capacity to iterate on this at a larger scale as we grow the GitLab team.
We are closely monitoring the economic impact of COVID-19 on our business and working to take smart, proactive steps as we navigate through these uncertain times, including the acceleration of an ongoing project to be more intentional about recruiting and sourcing.
GitLab is also reprioritizing some of our open roles, and hiring for others at a later date so that our team is able to focus their efforts.
Our Recruiting team has been proactively reaching out to candidates who match our needs for certain roles. If this is you, the Recruiter or Sourcer will be in touch with next steps. In the meantime, please feel free to get to know more about GitLab and what it's like to work here.
This recruiting model means you’ll see some significant changes to the GitLab jobs page. We will no longer be accepting inbound applications for our roles.
Instead, we invite you to join the GitLab talent community. That’s where you’ll be able to share your resume with our team so that you can be considered for a career opportunity with GitLab. Have questions about the Talent Community? Check out this FAQ video on GitLab Unfiltered.
The roles we’re actively sourcing for will be listed on our careers page, however there will not be a link to apply. To be considered for a career at GitLab, be sure to share your information with us by joining our talent community.
If you’ve already applied for one of the roles we’re prioritizing, your application will still be reviewed. Our team will provide you with feedback based on the process outlined in our handbook.
At GitLab, we hire people from all over the world and all walks of life. Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging is one of our core values. However, as an all-remote company we do face challenges with hiring in certain countries. Each country has unique and complex rules, laws, and regulations, that can affect our ability to conduct business, as well as the employability of the citizens and residents of those countries. We encourage you to check our handbook for more in-depth information.
In countries listed in our contract_factors.yml file, we have a payroll and can employ you as an employee. In all other countries, we can hire you as a contractor.
At GitLab, we do not accept solicitations from recruiters, recruiting agencies, headhunters, or outsourcing organizations. If you email us about this type of opportunity, we'll reply with a link to this paragraph to indicate that we'd like to be removed from the contact list.
