Job Summary

As Head of Search, your leadership and your technical expertise will help propel Sourcegraph to become the “Google of Code Search”. Your team consists of high-agency, self-directed teammates, so you will have ample opportunity to dive in and be deeply technically involved yourself. Your extensive experience in high-scale sharded-computation “shards and mixers” architectures will help us define the scalability story for our search engine, as search consumes ever more resources in the pursuit of perfect result relevance for the largest code bases in the world.
