About and Services

Contact Darren

Hi, I'm Darren, and you're awesome! I'm currently GitLab's Head of Remote 🌎.

I offer advisor and consulting services to all stages of business, from Seed to Public. I'm available for speaking and panel engagements on the topics of organizational design and future of work. My primary areas of impact are:

  • Organizational design

  • Remote, hybrid, and distributed work transformation

  • Workplace strategy and operations

  • Editorial, communication, and marketing strategy

  • Future of work operations and thought leadership

  • Personal and professional coaching

I've spent my career across the spectrum of remote — over 15 years leading remote teams and charting remote transformations in colocated spaces, hybrid-remote environments, and all-remote.

I hold a Guinness World Record in publishing.

I authored GitLab's Remote Playbook and Living the Remote Dream: A Guide To Seeing the World, Setting Records, and Advancing Your Career.

The highest honor of my life is being chosen to be a dad. I'm an adoptive father, and I am a steadfast advocate for open adoption.
