  • leading group initiatives or goals

You should apply if you:

  • are looking for the opportunity to strongly contribute to the development of a great team and a scalable, robust developer lead product within a fast paced but people friendly culture.

  • are comfortable coding in and happy to work with JavaScript/TypeScript

  • can challenge and empathise with architectural or coding opinions in the team
  • have experience in cultivating a strong engineering culture in an iterative, agile environment
  • are a strong multi-tasker, capable of managing multiple priorities

We’d especially love to hear from you if you:

  • have experience leading a geographically distributed team
  • You have experience with Node.js

About Snyk

We’re on a mission to make the world a safer place with more secure software.

We’re living in a world of digital transformation that is turning ever more industries into a software-development industry.  Cyber security is taking centre stage for many companies, and demand for Snyk’s product is sky-rocketing!  

Snyk has already been adopted by over 2.2M developers, including multiple leading enterprise customers such as Google, Salesforce and Intuit, who are using Snyk to find and fix vulnerabilities in their open source libraries and container images, empowering them to develop secure software, faster.

In March of 2021, we raised $300M in Series E funding at a $4.7 billion company valuation, just after securing an additional $200M in Series D funding in September 2020, and successfully closing two strategic acquisitions. On top of that, we doubled the size of our global team, and we’re not stopping there!  

We believe open source software is a force for good, and we’re building Snyk to make it easier for developers who aren’t security experts to stay secure.  Join us!
