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 1,800+ team members and values that guide a culture where people embrace the belief that everyone can contribute.

The Package stage integrates with GitLab's CI/CD product. Our mission is to create a secure environment where both source code and dependencies can live by allowing you to publish, consume, and discover packages of a large variety of languages and platforms all in one place.

The package group is using the fullstack group model which means that all the engineers, front end and back end, report to a single Engineering Manager. The intention of using this model is to increase efficiency and drive results by building a process that supports the whole group's effort towards our goals. Primarily, this means that all engineers participate in conversations in the group and contribute broadly to group process iteration.

The package stage works on the follow product categories:

Package Stage deliverables are sometimes more at risk given that there are fewer people who can help out.
