I would like to find all users that have a login to Stack Overflow and that work in my company.

To do that, I have seen that I can create a custom query on https://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/edit/875590#resultSets

In UserProfile, there exists a field named at in Current Position that (if used) must normally specify in which company a user is working.

In which database table is this field defined so that I can use this field to query StackExchange user datatable ?

If this field is not accessible, can it be added ? Is there another solution ?

This is not possible. It's a Stack Overflow specific field, taken from a column/table that is not filled and likely not even present in the databases of other Stack Exchange sites. SEDE only supports the 'greatest common divisor' of the sites, and the same holds for the API.

  • So the only solution would be to ask to all guy in my company to flag AboutMe field with a specific tag like <company>MyCompany</company> !?

  • Yes. But right now, they aren't required to fill in their position and company either. You might have more colleagues here than you know ...

  • Yes, it is correct but I regret only that "Company" field is not a generic field to all StackExchange sites :-)
