Our mission at Sourcegraph is to make it so that everyone can code. Software has driven a lot of technological innovation, and yet today, only a small fraction of the world can contribute to this progress by writing code. We believe that enabling more people to code will create economic opportunity across the world and will drive better and faster technological progress that benefits everyone.

The problem developers face today is that the amount, complexity, and value of code is increasing quickly, and it is hard to keep up. We call this problem Big Code

Sourcegraph helps developers at our customers and in open source, find code, understand code, and automate changes to that code at scale in massive codebases.

Why this opportunity is awesome

As a Director of Product, you will report directly to the VP of Product and you will be responsible for multiple key initiatives that directly drive our company wide goals this year:

  1. Make Sourcegraph the standard developer reference and code search for the public code universe
  2. Bring the value of other developer tools into Sourcegraph
  3. Launch code insights to empower data-driven decisions in engineering organizations

These initiatives will not only help us further grow our enterprise business, but they will also enable us to become the standard tool for searching over and understanding code in the open-source universe.

It’s an exciting time to join because our business is growing rapidly (4x revenue growth last year with zero customer churn) and our $50m Series C from Sequoia has given us the opportunity to make these big ambitious bets while being fiscally responsible.

Our values and generous compensation philosophy has allowed us to build an exceptional all-remote team, and so you would be in a unique position to continue attracting the best talent in the world.

What we're looking for

We're looking for an experienced product leader with relevant domain expertise and who shares our values to drive the product strategy and manage the PMs working on code insights, extensibility, frontend platform, and the API docs workstream (Sourcegraph for public code initiative).


  1. You have domain knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas: frontend infrastructure, open source development, IDEs, integrations with developer tools.
  2. You have led a team of multiple product managers.
  3. You have owned the product strategy for multiple complex products.
  4. You have experience growing (through both hiring and career development) high quality and diverse teams.
  5. Your working hours overlap with 8am-4pm PT for at least 10 hours per week so we have time to collaborate synchronously when necessary.
