Lead Application Security Engineer

As a key member of our application security team, your core responsibility is to work with functional groups across GitLab to assess the security architecture of new products and capabilities. Examples include executing and maintaining a security review program, and working with development teams to define and evangelize security best practices.

Our thesis is that Good Security Is Holistic. We think that simulating a security culture in engineering is one of the most important things. We don't do checklist security, the goal is to keep the trust of our users by being secure, compliance is not a goal in itself. We don't think that third party products are unimportant but they are not a silver bullet to making everything secure.

The Security Team is responsible for leading and implementing the various initiatives that relate to improving GitLab's security.
