Hello, we're Stack Overflow
Stack Overflow is an open community of over 10.7 million developers, helping each other. We partner with businesses to help them understand, hire, engage, and enable the world's developers. Our products and services are focused on developer marketing, advertising, technical recruiting, and enterprise knowledge sharing.
Why Work with Us?
Every person we hire makes Stack Overflow an even better place to work. We foster an open and diverse work culture where everyone works together. We believe great ideas can come from anywhere and welcome anyone to champion ideas. We support a culture that’s open to trying new things and is constantly trying to learn from the things we build.
An Insider's view of Stack Overflow
How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?
One of the reasons I came to Stack Overflow is the trust they place in people. If you are hired here, it means they trust you to get stuff done and manage your time. That means we have a lot of latitude to set our schedules, work where we want, and plan our work.
Senior Sales Executive, Enterprise
How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?
I work with almost every team at the company to bring new products and features to market: with product managers, UX, and designers to shape the user experience; with Sales, Support, and community managers to communicate new features; and with Content and Digital to run campaigns that engage and delight our users.
Product Marketing Manager
How has your career grown since starting at the company?
I joined SO 1yr ago as a fresh grad- I have since earned 3 promotions, 3 raises, and a wealth of sales knowledge and acumen. This is not just a result of my hard work- it reflects my coworkers' dedication to support and friendliness; I owe much to the geniality and knowledge of my colleagues. I cannot picture a better starting point for my career.
Senior Account Executive
What is your vision for the company?
We believe that developers are writing the script for the future, and Stack Overflow is in a unique position to reach and influence that community. My vision is for us to continue to grow Stack Overflow as a community where any developer from any background can learn, share their knowledge, and build their career.
