Director of Product (Remote)

San Francisco /
Product /
Full-time
Sourcegraph has a clear mandate from our customers to scale our business, our product, and our team, as detailed in our announcement that we raised a $50m Series C from Sequoia. Read through our handbook to learn about our team, our vision, our values, our goals, and many other things.

Today, the product team is 6 people: 3 Product Managers and 3 Product Designers. However, the engineering team is roughly 35 people, divided into 7 teams. The product team needs to catch up to the engineering team size so that there is a Product Manager partnered with each Engineering Manager, and then continue to grow with engineering as new teams are created.

Here is our current 2021 plan for engineering, and our current 2021 plan for product (link coming soon!). I would like to align the three Directors of Product with the soon to be hired Directors of Engineering:

Director of Product - Platform and Infrastructure
We currently do not have any product managers working on the teams that fall under this domain. You will be responsible for recruiting and hiring an amazing team of Product Managers who can help scale the organization. You will collaborate closely with the Director of Engineering - Platform and Infrastructure to lead our engineering investments in our application platform, developer productivity, and production infrastructure.

Director of Product - Search and replace
There are currently two Product Managers on this team. You will be responsible for hiring two additional PMs with specialties in search experiences and search at massive scale. You will collaborate closely with the Director of Engineering - Search and Replace to lead and innovate with our engineering teams that are focused on solving Big Code problems for the largest organizations.

Director of Product - Web
We are targeting to fill this role in FY22-Q2. There is currently one Product Manager on this team. You will be responsible for hiring two additional PMs. You will collaborate closely with the Director of Engineering - Web to lead the teams with an extraordinary breadth of functionality, owning all the places where a developer will interact with Sourcegraph: the browser extension, their editor, integrations with services, and more.

Qualifications

    • You have managed a team of at least 5 Product Managers, and excel at motivating, retaining, and challenging your Product Managers to do their best work.

    • You have designed and implemented hiring processes for product managers that minimized bias and produced high quality, diverse teams.
    • Your working hours overlap with 8am-4pm Pacific Time for at least 10 hours per week, so we have time to collaborate synchronously when necessary.

    • You will think strategically about the product, and empower our team’s to make decisions that support the vision of the Company. 
    • You are passionate about our mission, and know that the growth of our product team will determine our ability to execute on solving those problems. 
    • You will model, teach, and apply our values in everyday interactions.
    • You will facilitate and sustain a healthy, inclusive team culture where everyone is set up to do their best work.
