What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?


Who we are

Our mission at Sourcegraph is to make it so that everyone can code, not just ~0.1% of the population.

In enabling more people to code, we believe we will create economic opportunity across the world and will drive progress that benefits everyone.
