    Repository - Sourcegraph | 2021-10-01
    Sourcegraph, brings to its hosted code (not necessarily only on GitHub) some other features that facilitate navigation between the project codes and its analysis, such as the possibility to go to the exact point where a variable was declared, search every time it appears in all project files and documentation floating cards when hovering over something.

    Sourcegraph is code search that helps developers find code and automate large-scale changes to code. We plan to index the entire open source web, and recently expanded our universal code search platform to the cloud.

    Our mission at Sourcegraph is to make code accessible to everyone. We’re doing this by building the Netscape and Google for the world of code—both private code inside companies like Uber, Lyft, Cloudflare, Yelp, and Twitter—and over all open source.

    Come help us build the global graph of code by compiling the world!

    Sourcegraph indexes faster than GitHub so you never need to worry about stale results. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Try it yourself on

  • Sourcegraph: Why we're indexing the OSS universe | 2021-08-19
    Hey, I'm the CTO/co-founder of Sourcegraph. Thanks for the feedback here. I've opened up a pull request to make it clearer how to disable non-critical telemetry: Please let us know if you have any feedback on that!

    Will respond to the OP's concerns, which I agree are important, in a direct reply. | 2021-08-19
    Thanks for responding here, in the pull request, and committing to respond to the parent poster. That's more than required, and welcome.

    In general I reckon a lot of in tech believe that our e-mail addresses "are out there anyway", and as such we start to think that it's reasonable to opt-in collection of personal information on the behalf of others (per the Critical Telemetry[1] section) without their full consent.

    I don't personally think that's OK behaviour. Good products grow and are shared by worth-of-mouth and network effects over time when they're genuinely useful (as I think sourcegraph is), and I'd debate whether there's greater overall value in silently transmitting e-mail addresses (something that many people will only learn about at a later date) versus the potential privacy and reputation costs (arising from conversations like this).

    There may be some kind of argument that it's required in order to send security and policy update notices; I'm uncertain about that: it's honest and useful to announce relevant information to the public when ready, but some consumers may wish to stay current on those themselves rather than be (unwittingly, at least) added to push-based messaging.

    These would probably be considerations you'd have to reconcile not only with your own codebase and perspective, but also with your colleagues and peers, and I understand that friction - this is just honest feedback from my perspective.

    Our mission at Sourcegraph is to make it so that everyone can code. Software has driven a lot of technological innovation, and yet today, only a small fraction of the world can contribute to this progress by writing code. We believe that enabling more people to code will create economic opportunity across the world and will drive better and faster technological progress that benefits everyone.

    The problem developers face today is that the amount, complexity, and value of code is increasing quickly, and it is hard to keep up. We call this problem Big Code. Sourcegraph helps developers at our customers and in open source, find code, understand code, and automate changes to that code at scale in massive codebases.

    It’s an exciting time to join because our business is growing rapidly (4x revenue growth last year with zero customer churn) and our $50m Series C from Sequoia has given us the opportunity to make these big ambitious bets while being fiscally responsible.

    We are an equal opportunity workplace and our all-remote team is spread across the world. We embrace diversity and welcome people from all backgrounds and communities.

    Transparency is a core value of ours and you can learn more about how we operate by reading our handbook:

    Sourcegraph is building Universal Code Search so developers can focus on solving problems instead of struggling to find and understand code.

    We’re hiring for several teams:

    * Code insights team (Frontend, Backend): The code insights team is looking for experienced, passionate engineers to build with us an entirely new product area of Sourcegraph. Code insights is the first feature in Sourcegraph that provides high-level information about code, building atop all Sourcegraph’s other features and even external data sources.

    * Cloud team (Frontend, PM): The Cloud team is looking for a senior frontend engineer who knows how to build intuitive user experiences to make the power of Universal Code Search accessible to everyone on You will have a lot of ownership to solve tough technical and UX problems that will drive massive adoption of our product by developers all around the world.

    * Campaigns team (Full Stack/Frontend): The Campaigns team is looking for an experienced engineer to help us build a new product that will define how our industry accomplishes large scale code changes. Campaigns enable developers to make changes across many repositories and code hosts, using code.

    * Search team (Backend, PM): We are looking for backend engineers who know how to design and build performance-sensitive distributed systems. You will make Universal Code Search more powerful and scale to our customers with the largest codebases in the world.

    * Distribution team: We are looking for software engineers who are passionate about and skilled at making software easy to build, deploy, configure, monitor, and debug. You will have ownership to solve challenging problems that our customers face when they deploy and scale Sourcegraph on-premise in a variety of environments, and that we face when we deploy and scale (the largest Sourcegraph installation in the world).

    * Security team: We are looking for an engineer who will proactively improve the security of our codebase, our product, our cloud, and our customers’ on-premise deployments. You will be one of the early security team hires at Sourcegraph, where everyone contributes to our shared goals, from writing code to running vulnerability scans.

    We are a completely open and transparent company and you can learn more about how we operate by reading our handbook: Technologies that we use: Go, TypeScript, React, RxJS, GraphQL, Postgres, Docker, Kubernetes.

    We are an equal opportunity workplace and our all-remote team is spread across the world. We embrace diversity and welcome people from all backgrounds and communities.
