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.

  • Product Input: Collaborating with Product and Engineering teams to provide user insights and feedback, contributing to the development and direction of our AI offerings.
