GitLab Case Study

GitLab was looking to gain the cutting edge in the hyper-competitive technology landscape. Because of their new partnership with a China reseller, GitLab needed to hire a Director of Strategy and Operations—and fast. This role would determine the company’s success in entering the Chinese market.

With a commitment to performance, transparency, and continuous learning, Preacta worked with GitLab to hire a Director of Strategy and Operations utilising the following:

  • Retained searches identified the challenges the industry was facing.
  • Talent Intelligence support filtered and pinned down talent pool across multiple locations.
  • Advisory leveraged Talent Intelligence results to understand the market better and prioritise the skillsets requirements.
  • Delivery of a strong, curated shortlist of candidates.
  • Customised Real-time Reporting Dashboards for visualising GitLab’s growth and success.

After only six months of unsuccessful search, Gitlab engaged Preacta to fill this Executive role. In what proved to be a heavily saturated market, Preacta experts worked with GitLab to quickly recruit for their new Executive position at record speeds.
