Posted on Tuesday, October 10, 2023

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. This team helps improve new and existing customer lifecycles to improve Adoption and stickiness, by ensuring they understand and have access to the right tools and practices to track user behaviors and patterns.

You’ll Spend Your Time:

  • Pair-programming and collaboratively building the services that power Snyk’s user experience.
  • Using best practices and new technologies to maintain and extend our existing services
  • Working across the full stack and entire development life cycle to build, test, deploy, and support high-quality, reliable, fast services
  • Promote code quality through reviews and best practices
  • Work your way up to participating in our on-call rotation (compensated)

What You’ll Need:

  • Familiarity with Node.js, JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Go, or willing to learn
  • Commitment to code quality and constructive code reviews
  • Proactive attitude and accountability along with an appreciation for independence
  • Eagerness to learn new technologies and adapt to change
  • Comfortable with pair programming or willing to learn

We’d be Lucky if You:

  • Experience using Test-Driven Development (TDD)
  • Experience collaborating on UX with members of a design team
  • Have been a part of a globally distributed team

About Snyk

Snyk’s mission is to help developers use open source code and stay secure.

The use of open source is booming, but security is a key concern (https://snyk.io/stateofossecurity/). Snyk’s unique product enables developers and enterprise security teams to continuously find & fix vulnerable dependencies without slowing down, offering seamless integration into Dev, DevOps and DevSecOps workflows. We care deeply about the quality and usefulness of the tools we develop, always focusing on our customers and users.

We are experiencing rapid growth - and we want you to join us! By the end of Q3 2019 alone, Snyk was already adopted by over 450,000 developers, and including multiple enterprise customers (such as Google, New Relic, ASOS and others). We also raised an additional $200 Million, announced on September 9, 2020, from investors such as Stripes and Salesforce Ventures, demonstrating that they are as excited as we are by Snyk’s progress and potential.

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

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!
