GitLab journey started in 2011 by Chief Technology Officer Dmitriy Zaporozhets with Co-founder & CEO Sid Sijbrandij seeing GitLab for the 1st time in 2012.  In 2013, both decided to work on GitLab full-time and in 2014, GitLab was officially incorporated.   GitLab is an all-remote company initially based in Netherlands, with the first employee based in Serbia.  They shifted to San Francisco (United States), had an office, and employees showed up for the first few days and stopped coming in.  GitLab: “It was because we were so used to using systems correctly, and using a remote work style.”

GitLab is an open core company which develops software for the software development lifecycle with 30 million estimated registered users and more than 1 million active license users, and has an active community of more than 2,500 contributors.
