We're looking for an experienced Sr. Product Manager to drive the roadmap for Editor Extensions at GitLab. This team owns our extensions for Visual Studio, VS Code, Jetbrains, and Neovim.
The Editor Extension team is responsible for bringing GitLab functionality directly to the most popular code editors and IDEs, enabling developers to work more seamlessly and efficiently with GitLab. The GitLab Workflow extension for VS Code has been in use for a while, but it currently has a limited scope of features. The other extensions are still in initial development. This is an emerging area within GitLab that will collaborate closely with all other product areas, especially the Code Creation, Code Review, and IDE teams. It will also be necessary to work with the Secure, Govern, and Verify stages to enable developers to see application security scan results and pipeline job results within their IDEs. These areas of the product are focused on making it easy and intuitive to manage the various tasks that developers do while writing code, so that they are secure, compliant, and encourage best development practices.
You’ll lead cross-functionally with other GitLab stages to ensure our teams can drive our core differentiators. You’ll enable GitLab to lead from a position of product maturity while contributing to the strategic direction of the Editor Extensions capabilities, maintaining our lead and enabling our customers to ship software, faster.
What you’ll do
- Work closely with internal development, technical field, marketing, and other product teams continuing to mature Editor Extensions.
- Ensure that the next milestone contains the most relevant items to customers, users, and us
- Work with customers, users, and other teams to make feature proposals enticing, actionable, and small
- Keep /direction up to date as our high-level roadmap
- Ensure that we translate user demands to features that make them happy but keep the product UI clean and the codebase maintainable
- Willingness to keep up with the maturing DevSecOps market finding ways to collaborate well beyond the scope of Editor Extensions.
Additional core responsibilities of GitLab Product Managers.
What you’ll bring
- Prior experience working with developer tooling or IDE extensions
- Experience managing stakeholders, including internally-facing product teams, senior executives, field sales teams, and customers.
- Demonstrated ability to work in a cross-functional team in a large Product organization.
- High-level technical understanding of how teams manage their source code at scale
- Experience using developer tooling, especially “DevOps” platforms.
- Excellent communication skills and ability to work cross-functionally, as Editor Extensions/Create often contributes to and interacts with nearly every corner of the company.
- Experience building features within enterprise SaaS and Self-hosted software platforms.
