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 to create the software you use every day. In enabling more people to code, we believe we will create economic opportunities 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 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
Sourcegraph is in a stage of growth where it’s critical for us to provide support and coaching to our managers and ensure they’re growing and getting the best from their people. You’ll also be working closely with our bigger People team to help build out and enhance our hiring, onboarding, learning, impact management, compensation, wellbeing and innovation initiatives.
Our best people thrive in fast-paced, constantly-changing environments where anyone can raise ideas, take ownership of challenges, challenge leaders’ thinking and apply high agency to getting the best work done.

You are a seasoned HRBP with a recommended 8 years’ experience in a people-partnering role within a fast-paced, high-change environment like Tech. You’re skilled at building trust with experienced and first-time managers, and you know how to help them make sense of the opportunities and challenges of management. You are available to help our US-based managers in their timezones, have a strong track record of interpreting and applying the appropriate sections of applicable US laws, guidelines, regulations, ordinances, and policies, to people situations as appropriate.
Managers and teammates seek your day-to-day advice, and your strategic input and guidance on bigger initiatives relating to their people. You balance objectivity with empathy, and logic with creativity, to help us find the right solution for everyone involved. You aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo, can help others navigate ambiguity and always approach challenges mindful of the impact on our company culture, values and teammate morale. You are willing to help with day-to-day tasks as we scale and figure out what the future looks like. You communicate with warmth and influence, and are comfortable practicing HR in an asynchronous environment where meetings are used only if necessary and written documentation is default.
Not sure if this is you?
We want a diverse, global team, with a broad range of experience and perspectives. If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements. We carefully consider every application, and will either move forward with you, find another team that might be a better fit, keep in touch for future opportunities, or thank you for your time.
