Every day, the world gets more digital thanks to tens of millions of developers building the future faster than ever. But with exponential growth comes exponential risk, as outnumbered security teams struggle to secure mountains of code. This is where Snyk (pronounced “sneak”) comes in. Snyk is a developer security platform that makes it easy for development teams to find, prioritize, and fix security vulnerabilities in code, dependencies, containers, and cloud infrastructure — and do it all right from the start. Snyk is on a mission to make the world a more secure place by empowering developers to develop fast and stay secure.

Our Opportunity

Sitting across all product lines, the Product Adoption division is focusing on specific workflow improvements (e.g. purchasing, onboarding ) that guide users through their journey using Snyk that most efficiently leads to value and success.

  • Participating in our on-call rotation (compensated)

  • Familiarity with Node.js, JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Go, or willing to learn
  • Commitment to code quality and constructive code reviews
  • Experience using Test-Driven Development (TDD)
  • Experience collaborating on UX with members of a design team

  • A fast-paced approach, fitting a start-up/scale-up environment using product-led practices
  • Comfort working with uncertainties and unknowns

We’d be Lucky if You:

  • Have a demonstrable track record of project leadership and mentorship of software engineers
  • Have experience building software that integrates with multiple existing systems.
