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 4x year-over-year revenue growth with zero customer churn, and our$50M Series C from Sequoia has 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.  

To achieve our mission, we're looking for a Recruiter to help grow our values-driven, all-remote team. Reporting to the VP of Talent, you'll be pivotal to our company’s success.  You will be a key member of our pioneering and fast-growing Talent department. In addition to working with amazing colleagues who exemplify our ‘work as a team’ core value, you will also have the opportunity to provide a high-touch, "best in class" candidate experience, allowing us to recruit the most talented and qualified people we need to achieve our aggressive growth plans.

Sound like a good fit? We want to hear from you!
