Overview

Built as a multidisciplinary in-house agency, the Sourcegraph Brand Team exists to elevate, activate and communicate the value of Sourcegraph to the world. We make this possible by serving as a strategic creative partner to XFN stakeholders, offering full-service creative support with a rapid, flexible, iterative process that stems from a deep understanding of our products, our processes, and our people.
The Brand team serves as a strategic partner to cross-functional teams and stakeholders, offering full-service creative support, market insights and brand strategy with a rapid, flexible, iterative process that stems from a deep understanding of our audience and the challenges they face, as well as our products and the solutions they provide.
We are seeking a seasoned Brand Strategist to help us drive the awareness, perception and engagement of the Sourcegraph brand forward as we work to make coding accessible to everyone. You have strong opinions on what a brand is, and what it isn’t (so much more than just a logo), as well as what it takes to build a brand from scratch, grow it to global recognition with high standards of quality, and maintain its relevance and stature into the future. You love analyzing data and scouring for insights as much as leading qualitative interview workshops, and have no fear of presenting your findings and your strategy at executive or company-wide meetings. Most of all, you understand the power of a strong brand and the direct lines it draws between customer loyalty, advocacy, growth, and business success. If you are passionate about brand strategy and want to help us reach and connect with the global audience of developers (27 million and counting), then this may be the role you’ve been looking for.
