  • You’ll engage with our user base and the wider GitLab community to understand their pain points and work toward long-term fixes that enable them to succeed with their goals.
  • You’ll undertake usability testing to validate your thinking, collaborate with our UX Researchers on generative research, and you’ll share findings with the wider team, ensuring recommendations are communicated effectively across our organization.
  • You’ll contribute to our Design System, alongside the rest of the UX team and the GitLab community as a whole.

Projects you might work on in our Secure stage group:
