  • Make prioritization decisions and drive the strategy that connects our Code Creation investments to customer outcomes and business results
  • Keep the group’s direction up to date with our high-level roadmap
  • Work with customers, users, and other GitLab teams to make feature proposals enticing and actionable
  • Coordinate with internal teams and external partners on opportunities for incorporating new technologies, LLMs, and enhancement techniques

  • At least 5 years of product management experience, understanding customer needs, and launching successful products
  • At least 2 years product management experience guiding the work of teams building ML models, AI-powered features, and/or related products
  • Strong technical background and understanding from working hands-on with LLMs or other AI technologies, either as a PM, an ML engineer, or as a data scientist
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a cross-functional team in a large Product organization
  • Experience building products within enterprise SaaS and/or self-hosted software platforms
  • Understanding of DevSecOps principles and best practices
