Posted on Friday, March 22, 2024

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.

Joining Snyk means embracing our core values: One Team, Care Deeply, Customer Centric, and Forward Thinking. As a member of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to thrive in a dynamic environment where fostering collaboration, leading with empathy, driving business impact, and inspiring trust are at the heart of everything we do.

Snyk IaC is designed to make it easy for developers to keep their applications secure from the start by providing security feedback and fixes in-line with code across the SDLC and running cloud environments.

We are looking for a talented software engineer with a passion for creative problem solving to join the IaC Engineering team. As a member of our team, you will have the opportunity to enable developers worldwide to build more secure applications efficiently. You will work in and contribute to a collaborative and diverse environment, while leveraging the latest development methodologies.

If you feel comfortable programming in Golang and/or Typescript or willing to learn these languages we’d love to meet you.

You’ll Spend Your Time:

  • Collaborating with your team to shape our product with a bias for action, and focus on iterative delivery
  • Actively contributing code while assuming full ownership and responsibility for all implemented changes
  • Working with your team members to create actionable plans to further enhance IaC functionality and scale
  • Solving challenges such as reliability and code complexity
  • Applying feedback and new knowledge on a broad scale, clearly communicating how actions enable team progress
  • Helping guide fellow developers through insightful coaching and mentorship, ensuring the successful completion of assigned tasks

What You’ll Need:

  • High standards for code quality, testing, and iterative, continuous delivery
  • Experience with development tooling like CLI and CI/CD tools
  • Collaboration skills for pair programming and code reviews

We’d be Lucky if You:

  • Have strong focus around validation and high product reliability
  • Have experience with Cloud platforms such as GCP
  • Have application security experience
  • Are familiar with distributed systems architecture and cloud computing


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!
