Senior Software Engineer - Security Intelligence Team



Software Engineering
Bucharest, Romania
Posted on Thursday, June 27, 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.

Our Opportunity

We’re looking for a talented software engineer to join our Security Intelligence Team to work on our security data pipeline and internal tooling that enables our analysts to efficiently curate and enhance the vulnerability data that powers all of Snyk’s products.

The Security Intelligence Team works to develop novel, effective methods to sift through likely vulnerabilities in open source which haven’t yet been discovered, verified, or disclosed.

We need your help to help push our internal tooling and systems to the next level! You will play an integral part in the development and progression of Snyk’s Vulnerability Management System.

We are an agile team consisting of a mix of engineers and security analysts. We are also a distributed team spread geographically across the UK, Romania and Israel.

You’ll spend your time:

  • Planning, designing and maintaining systems and tools to help our analysts work more efficiently
  • Working with other engineers and analysts in the team and group
  • Influencing technical decisions and roadmaps for the team and group
  • Working across the full stack, in a CI/CD environment

You should apply if you:

  • Experience developing with Python
  • Have experience working with databases and data pipelines
  • Have experience leading and designing projects
  • Enjoy working closely with your end users, and care about iterative improvement
  • Appreciate being part of a diverse team
  • Communicate proactively and speak English to a good standard
  • Enjoy solving problems, and love learning new things
  • Interested in security or open source software, and you believe in our mission

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

  • Have experience developing in Django, React, Vue or PySpark
  • Have experience with AWS, system design and architecture
  • Have experience working as part of a distributed team
  • Have worked with Kubernetes or another container-based operational environment

Tech Stack

Our current stack consists of Python, Django, Kafka, TypeScript, React, Vue, Nuxt, Postgresql, AWS, Google Cloud, Docker, Kubernetes, Helm, Snowflake and Terraform.

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!
