Posted on Wednesday, May 3, 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

In Snyk Open Source we introduce and improve support for dev tools, languages, package managers, source code management and more. This means tackling challenges such as taming the complexity in developer ecosystems, providing a reliable and fast service at scale, and optimising the algorithms behind dependency resolution.

You’ll Spend Your Time:

  • Pair-programming to collaboratively build the services that power Snyk
  • Working across the entire development life cycle to build, test, deploy and support high-quality, reliable, fast services that power Snyk
  • Making use of best practices and new technologies to maintain and extend our existing services, including finding the right alerting, monitoring and SLOs for your services
  • Collaborating with other teams to build a product everyone truly loves
  • Continuously delivering small, high quality changes to production, at a sustainable pace
  • Identifying potential improvements in our team processes and workflows and driving the changes needed to address them
  • Supporting and growing the other engineers in your team through pairing, feedback, and mentoring
  • Investigating and addressing performance and scalability concerns across our services as we grow
  • Evolving our technology and architecture to meet the challenges ahead
  • Participating in our on-call rotation (compensated)

What You’ll Need:

  • Experience in TypeScript, Golang, or another similar programming language
  • Production-grade experience with Kubernetes
  • Cloud-native and/or Docker experience
  • Experience working with production databases

We’d be Lucky if You:

  • Have experience with multiple programming languages, and are interested in learning more
  • Have experience with RESTful APIs
  • Have an SRE background
  • Are familiar with distributed system architectural challenges
