GitLab is an open core company which develops software for the software development lifecycle used by more than 100,000 organizations and has an active community of more than 2200 contributors. GitLab openly shares more information than most companies and is public by default, meaning the projects, strategy, direction and metrics are discussed openly and can be found within the website. GitLab values are Collaboration, Results, Efficiency, Diversity & Inclusion, Iteration, and Transparency (CREDIT) and these form the culture.
GitLab's team handbook, if printed would be over 3,000 pages of text, is the central repository for how they operate and is a foundational piece to the GitLab values.
GitLab believes in a world where everyone can contribute. Their mission is to change all creative work from read-only to read-write. When everyone can contribute, consumers become contributors and they greatly increase the rate of human progress.
With GitLab, everyone can contribute.
