An overview of this role

Social Media requires a balance of work behind each of the two words that make up the practice. Social, by building trust with our audiences and connecting as personally as appropriate, and Media, by scaling our storytelling efforts to brand-level corporate marketing initiatives.

The “Social” in Social Media

The world’s best brands feel more like a trusted source of information to their audience than a company. They could even develop friendly relationships with their followers. This is because the world’s best brands understand people and weave that understanding into everything they do. Social Media at GitLab is a key part of building GitLab’s brand into one that is loved by its audience of developers, remote work pros, and IT folks up and down the ladder.

Social Media at GitLab focuses on understanding people who make up the GitLab community, creating and sharing content over social channels that they’ll find valuable, and educating team members in marketing and beyond on social media best practices for brands, personalities, and how we measure success.

The “Media” in Social Media

The world’s most renowned brands are perceived to be larger than life. As GitLab scales to new heights, the Social Media team prioritizes opportunities for brand-level storytelling initiatives.
