Gitlab is hiring a Design system designer
The GitLab DevOps platform empowers 100,000+ organizations to deliver software faster and more efficiently. We are one of the world’s largest all-remote companies with 1,600+ team members and values that guide a culture where people embrace the belief that everyone can contribute.
Our entire handbook is public. You can find the details of our vision & direction, check out how we structure our R&D teams, and understand how our UX team operates.
As a Product Designer or Senior Product Designer at GitLab, you’ll report to a Product Design Manager and work 1:1 with a Product Manager embedded in our Foundations group. You'll help beautify the GitLab UI, refine our Pajamas Design System, and improve our accessibility.
You’ll help define the UX vision for the Foundations group, particularly the design system category. You’ll translate the product roadmap into deliverables, improve both the usability and visual design of the product, and help improve processes that contribute to design efficiency. By the end of your first year, you’ll be a go-to member within the UX department for feedback on a range of topics from UI design and accessibility, to Figma best practices and beyond.
A current focus for the Foundations group is migrating legacy components in the product to utilize our design system, which includes performing accessibility evaluations to ensure components are compliant with standards. In the near future, our goal is to expand this effort to include implementation of our type scales and improve responsive behavior. The design system direction page also includes creating a dark mode that is scalable, accessible, and paves the way for other themes. Additionally, we continue to improve the visual design of the product and are currently advocating for unboxing our UI.
The culture at GitLab is something we're incredibly proud of. You'll spend your time collaborating with kind, talented, and motivated colleagues from across the globe.
Some of the benefits you'll be entitled to vary by the region or country you're in. However, all GitLab team members are fully remote and receive a "no ask, must tell" paid-time-off policy, where we don't count the number of days you take off annually.
You can work incredibly flexible hours, enabled by our asynchronous approach to communication. We'll also help you set up your home office environment, pay for your membership to a co-working space and contribute to the travel costs associated with meeting other GitLab employees across the world. Also, every year or so, we'll invite you to our Contribute event.
The hiring process for this Product Designer position typically follows five stages. The details of this process can be found at the bottom of our job family page. Our compensation calculator will be shared with candidates selected for a screening call.
