Write for GitLab

{::options parse_block_html="true" /}

## Get paid to write for GitLab {:.gitlab-orange .text-center #write-for-gitlab}

We want to publish you! Earn up to $200 per article writing for the GitLab Blog.

Are you great at solving challenging problems or explaining complex ideas? Do you have a specific area of expertise and want to share your knowledge? Help us expand our range of tutorials and advice about creating, collaborating, and deploying with Git and GitLab. You don't have to be an experienced writer, we will work with you to revise, refine, and publish your post to share with our community.

How It Works

  1. Choose a topic
  2. Start writing
  3. Receive feedback
  4. Get published
  5. Get paid

All of GitLab's blog posts begin as an issue in the GitLab blog post project. To become a community author:

If you don't see a topic that interests you, you can propose a new topic by creating a new issue and following the last two instructions above. Once approved Marcia will leave a comment "@username, you got it!" and you can start writing!

Get Paid

  Issues labeled TOP PRIORITY, will be compensated at USD 200 regardless of length. {:.alert .alert-info .text-center #top-priority}

When your post gets published, send us an invoice. GitLab will pay you in American Dollars (USD) from a bank account in the USA, via wired transfer to your bank account.


  • Good written English
  • Some previous experience in writing tutorials or technical overviews
  • Some background on the subject you're willing to write about
  • Be familiar with GitLab


  • If you want to write about your own product (or the product you represent), and how it integrates with GitLab, we'll be happy to have you as a Guest Writer. The Community Writers Program won't apply for these cases.
  • You are encouraged to write more than one post. If you succeed on the first process, we'll invite you to write for us regularly. The process for writing more than one post is exactly the same for writing the first one. Please, pick up an issue at a time.
  • Your post must be original, comprehensible, technical, and unprecedented.
