This Senior Field Security Engineer position is 100% remote. We're looking for someone who is a US citizen with an ability to gain a US security clearance as you'll be working with our US Public Sector (federal) team and customers.

It’s an exciting time to join our team. We're one of the world’s largest all-remote companies, and we've been intentionally building our culture this way from the start. With more than 1,200 team members in 65+ countries, GitLab is a place where you can contribute from almost anywhere. We are an ambitious, productive team that embraces a set of shared ​values​ in everything we do.

As a Field Security Engineer in our Assurance sub department, you'll play a key role in the team that serves as the public representation of GitLab's internal Security function. The team is tasked with providing high levels of security assurance to internal and external customers through customer support, sales enablement and security evangelism programs. This position will support our US Public Sector (federal) team and customers.

The culture here at GitLab is something we’re incredibly proud of. 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 -- instead, we focus on your results. You can work the hours you choose, enabled by our asynchronous approach to communication.

You can also expect stock options and a competitive salary. Our compensation calculator will be shared with selected candidates before any interview.

Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DIB) are fundamental to the success of GitLab. We want to infuse DIB in every way possible and in all that we do. We strive to create a transparent environment where all team members around the world feel that their voices are heard and welcomed. We also aim to be a place where people can show up as their full selves each day and contribute their best. With more than 100,000 organizations using GitLab, our goal is to have a team that is representative of our users.

  • Professionally handle communications with internal and external stakeholders
