ALL SOURCEGRAPH ROLES ARE FULLY REMOTE
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.
Given that we are an all-remote company and hire almost anywhere in the world, we don’t have a particular time-zone preference for this role.
Sourcegraph has product market fit thanks to a suite of features that is convincing the largest companies in the world to become customers, but we have a lot of work to do . This job offers the opportunity to help spread awareness and adoption of one of the most important developer tools on the planet. You’ll have the chance to collaborate with many teams throughout the company to deliver content that ties the platform together and improves our overall offering.
Our internal developers are customer-focused and understand and respect the power of good documentation. Our customers love our product and rely on it daily to ship and deploy better software. You’ll be buoyed and challenged by their constant stream of thoughtful feedback and engage with them to help solve their toughest problems.
We are looking for a Technical Editor to work on our documentation, blog, and other writing. You need to be comfortable tackling technical topics and excited about working with engineers, product managers, and other subject matter experts to shape and tell their stories.
You’ll be writing primarily for developers, both to help them use Sourcegraph and to persuade them to start using Sourcegraph. You need to be able to understand, use, and run Sourcegraph self-hosted, not just take concepts explained by others and reword them into docs. You should understand all of the concepts mentioned in our existing docs, or have a strong base of programming and system knowledge so you can learn about them.

You are a talented and technical Content Marketing strategist and writer. You have a coding background and have moved into writing and marketing, or are looking to shift into a marketing role. You can create content strategies, produce high-quality technical content that connects with developers.
You will be doing a lot of writing in this job, and we’d like you to start writing and make PRs to the docs repo on Day 1. This is not a “strategy and architecture” role where you lean on other team members to do all of the writing, though we’d love you to work with Marketing and other teams for strategic planning.
