Overview

ALL SOURCEGRAPH ROLES ARE FULLY REMOTE

Who we are

Our mission at Sourcegraph is to make it so that everyone can code, not just ~0.1% of the population. We help developers and companies with billions of lines of code create the software you use every day. In 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 company 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 search yet, but once you’ve used it, you can’t live without it–just like Google web search). 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

As a Technical Product Manager for the Content Platform team, you will be a crucial member of our exceptional high agency all-remote team to achieve our company-wide mission of helping Sourcegraph become the standard tool for searching and understanding public code. In this position you will have the opportunity to work closely with engineers and product designers to increase organizational velocity, performance, and quality.

You will partner directly with the team engineering manager to establish clear problem statements and validate priorities.  Sourcegraph is an all-remote team where transparent asynchronous communication is core to our success.  One of the key success factors in your role as a product manager is to clearly communicate the problems being solved, the outcomes, and how we will measure success.

Within one month you will:

  • Start building a trusting relationship with your peers.
  • Understand your team’s projects; why the projects are important to our company goals, the current status, risks, and mitigations.
  • Meet with stakeholders of the projects your teams are working on to build an understanding of the challenges they face and stakeholder needs.
  • Maintain the roadmap, backlog, and curate and solicit feedback for the product area.

Within three months you will:

  • Steer and refine the goals of the team(s), in line with plans and strategy that support business objectives.
  • Have a trusting relationship with your direct peers & team members.
  • Be able to clearly articulate the connection between your team efforts and the larger company goals.

Within six months you will:

  • Improve the planning, communication, and prioritization process of your team in partnership with your engineering manager counterpart.
  • Celebrate the fact that your team has delivered key results in support of their objectives for the year.

Within one year you will:

  • Collaborate with product and engineering leadership to develop the next set of ambitious goals that your org should work towards.
  • Communicate clearly the improvements your team expects to make to our engineering workflow.
  • Have cultivated a high performing team by upholding the PM – EM partnership responsibilities.

About you

As a Product Manager, you’re a storyteller, pulling together the story of “why”, and getting people excited about what your team is doing.  Through this, you influence, excite, and align folks within your team and across the organization about what your team is working on. You are constantly curious – wanting to understand and dig into the data and why behind pain points. You possess a deep passion for developer tools, processes and productivity enhancements.  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 strongly aligned with our values, inspired by our mission to make it so that everyone can code, and motivated to do your best work at Sourcegraph.

Qualifications:

  • 2+ years working as a Product Manager
  • Relevant domain knowledge in developer experience
  • Ability to stay focused on goals and strategically prioritize work
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent experience using data balanced with a pragmatic understanding of how to make appropriate tradeoffs to ship quickly and iterate when necessary
  • Demonstrated ability to drive and influence product strategy across engineering, design, and distribution
  • Proven ability to work closely with technical stakeholders to find acceptable solutions
  • Your working hours overlap with 8am-4pm PT for a total of at least 10 hours per week so we have time to collaborate synchronously when necessary

Nice to haves:

  • Previous experience leading initiatives to improve internal engineering tooling, systems, and processes
  • Experience working remotely with globally distributed teams
  • Experience working as a software engineer
