Hiring Status

Where GitLab can Hire?

In order for GitLab to be able to hire globally, we need to evaluate our company tax liability, scalability and frugality in each country/region we have team members living in.

For countries/regions we haven't evaluated yet, there is a default hiring limit of five people, that can be increased or decreased after initial evaluation.

In countries/regions where we have already reached that limit, we consider working with a Professional Employer Organisation or opening a GitLab Entity.
