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.

Working hours

Given that we are an all-remote company and hire almost anywhere in the world, we don’t have a location requirement for this role. However, your working hours must overlap with US time zones for at least 10 hours/week.

Why this job is exciting

We are creating a machine learning team at Sourcegraph, aimed at creating the most powerful coding assistant in the world. Many companies are trying, but Sourcegraph is uniquely differentiated by our rich code intelligence data and powerful code search platform. In the world of prompting LLMs, context is everything, and Sourcegraph’s context is simply the best you can get: IDE-quality, global-scale, and served lightning fast. We are oftentimes the only tool which has indexed all of a company’s code across all teams and systems, which gives us a huge advantage. Our code intelligence, married with modern AI, is already providing a remarkable alpha experience, and you can help us unlock its full potential.

We are looking for a deeply technical Product Manager with an engineering background who is versed in search, code intelligence, and AI. And if you happen to have an entrepreneurial streak, you’re in luck: we have an enterprise distribution pipeline, so whatever you build can be deployed straight to enterprise customers with some of the largest code bases in the world, without all the go-to-market hassle you’d encounter in a startup.

Within one month, you will…

  • Ramp up on search, code intel, code exploration, and AI
  • Meet the teams you will be supporting and get familiar with our product, platform, and AI assistant

Within three months, you will…

  • Launch a new feature which adds meaningful value to end users
  • Defined a vision for how code intelligence and LLMs can work together

Within six months, you will…

  • Be fully ramped up and owning key pieces of Sourcegraph’s AI strategy 
  • Be ramped up on other relevant parts of the Sourcegraph product
  • Launch the world’s best coding assistant
