We’re looking for an experienced and empathetic leader within our Extensibility group to hire and grow our engineers, help shape our vision, and foster a generative culture that delivers high business value in thoughtful increments.

The work ahead of our group is significant and exciting. We guide and enable the entire R&D organization to move our current bespoke API into both OpenAPI 3.1 and GraphQL. We’re leveraging an Envoy-based API Gateway, facilitating service extraction from our central monolith, shaping a new integration model, and integrating all of this and more with some of the biggest names in the developer tool industry.

You know how to inspire a team to align on a purpose and deliver their best work. You’ll use that knowledge at Snyk to make it ridiculously easy for developers to build a safer world. And in our Extensibility group, you’ll invite partners and customers to help make Snyk’s capabilities ubiquitous.

Your daily tasks

  • Hire and grow a high-performing, diverse team that is ridiculously easy to work with
  • Support right-sized project organization
  • Act as a servant leader to unblock your team’s work
  • Collaborate to build and align a team vision
  • Connect our work and our people to our customers and the business
  • Model competence, compassion, confidence, humility, growth, and teamwork
  • Review proposals, plans, code, user experiences, and communication to give feedback that celebrates incremental delivery of value, embraces experimentation and intelligent failures, and drives continuous improvement

You should apply if you

  • love growing teams and people who build ambitious and highly technical projects in a cloud-native environment, and have demonstrated success in it
  • have demonstrated success in connecting development teams to a business, a mission, and internal and external customers
  • have experience giving tough, productive feedback with compassion, honesty, and skill
  • are principled, flexible, and optimistic
  • have experience with the architectural and operational  needs of distributed systems at scale
  • bring enough alignment and organization to illuminate challenges, set expectations, make good plans, continuously improve, and enable a team to row in the same direction
  • embrace enough chaos, slack, and autonomy to foster innovation, experimentation, resilience, situational awareness and improvisation, and just-in-time support for customers and colleagues

We’d especially love to hear from you if you

  • have experience building REST, gRPC, and/or GraphQL APIs
  • have experience with  Kubernetes, Envoy, and/or Gloo
  • know Node and/or Go
  • have built partner integrations, identity systems, or other platform systems
  • have led teams through the organizational and technical challenges of hyperscale growth


Please apply below! We care deeply about the warm, inclusive environment we’ve created and we value diversity - we welcome applications from those typically underrepresented in tech. If you like the sound of this role, but are not totally sure whether you’re the right person, do apply anyway :)
