Who we are
Our mission at Sourcegraph is to make it so that everyone can code, not just ~0.1% of the population. Our code intelligence platform helps developers and companies with billions of lines of code create the software you use every day. By enabling more people to code, we believe we will create economic opportunity across the world and will drive progress that benefits everyone.
It’s an exciting time to join Sourcegraph. Our business is growing rapidly: we’ve experienced exponential growth and our $125M Series D from Andreessen Horowitz and $50M Series C from Sequoia have given us the opportunity to make big ambitious bets on our future. We have a huge market (every company that builds software) and massive opportunity (most developers haven't even heard of code intelligence yet, but once you've used it, you can't live without it--just like Google). By continuing to hire exceptional people, we have the opportunity to make Sourcegraph one of the biggest technology companies in the world.
Why this job is exciting
Sourcegraphs deep code expertise sits at the heart of Cody’s industry leading technical capabilities. Our Code AI platform is core to everything we do at Sourcegraph (read more in our handbook). As the Product Manager for our Code AI Platform, you will be responsible for continuing to push the boundaries of what it means to build an open and universal platform in the age of LLMs. How do we measure the impact of an admin’s LLM choice to their developers user experience? How do we help admins in extremely secure organizations trust our platform? Why would a developer build with our platform over competitors? Ideally, you will define a compelling vision at the center of our unique differentiation, an untapped part of the market, and something our customers are willing to pay for. You will be the go-to for defining a crucial member of our exceptional high agency all-remote team, and will help us to achieve ambitious objectives to build a code intelligence platform.

As a Product Manager, you’re the storyteller of the organization, pulling together the story of “why”, and getting people excited about growth and what your team is doing. You collaborate with all parts of the organization to understand our market, our business model and the problems our customers are trying to solve to articulate a growth strategy. You are organized, results driven and provide clarity across the organization and your team, to help inspire focus and reinforce that they are working on the right things. You are constantly curious - wanting to dig into the data, discover optimization opportunities to get our users to value faster. You can identify root causes of friction and devise experiments to address them. You’re empathetic - you bring the voice of the user into every conversation, and hold empathy and understanding for your teammates to align on an experimentation approach that is right.
