  • have experience in cultivating a strong engineering culture in an iterative, agile environment
  • can challenge and empathise with architectural or coding opinions in the team
  • are comfortable leading a geographically distributed team
  • have excellent communication skills and self-initiative

You’ll spend your time:

  • being hands-on with software development
  • directly line managing team members providing regular feedback, coaching, and mentoring
  • hiring the right people to enhance the team
  • working with your team’s product manager to plan and achieve goals
  • ensuring the team: 
    • shapes the product vision, plans, and achieves goals
    • communicates proactively and sets realistic expectations
    • keeps its tech running reliably in production
    • supports customers and other Snyk teams
    • balances delivery of current goals with ongoing tech investment 
  • participating in a paid on-call rotation
  • leading group initiatives or goals

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

  • are excited by Snyk’s mission, open-source, or developer tools
  • have significant coding experience
  • are familiar with distributed system architectural challenges
  • have experience delivering and running SaaS applications in production
  • have a good familiarity with static analysis tools or understanding of security issues as part of the developer’s environment

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 ( 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, including multiple enterprise customers (such as Google, New Relic, ASOS, and others). We also raised an additional $150 Million, announced January 21st, 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.
