Software Engineering
Bucharest, Romania
Posted on Wednesday, June 19, 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

Our Review & Improve group is on a mission to empower developers by making Snyk an integral part of their workflow within platforms like GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket. In this role, you'll join a talented team of engineers who are building the critical internal APIs that act as the bridge between Snyk developers and source code management platforms.

You'll leverage your expertise to design and implement robust APIs that empower other teams to build intuitive and seamless experiences. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in shaping the future of Snyk's developer experience and make a real difference in the way developers approach secure coding practices.

You’ll Spend Your Time:

  • Designing and implementing technical solutions in TypeScript and Golang, prioritizing an exceptional, secure developer experience.
  • Maintaining and improving coding standards for creating reliable, observable, and scalable systems.
  • Embracing our 'One Team' value by collaborating extensively across various departments and geographies, fostering a culture of inclusion and transparency.
  • Engaging with our product partners and our customer representatives to understand what we build and why, demonstrating that we “Care Deeply” and we’re building “Customer Centric”
  • Collaborating with teammates through pair programming and code reviews, working with others in both synchronous and asynchronous settings
  • Offering and receiving feedback, prioritizing its implementation, and ensuring that both you and those around have growth opportunities
  • Leading innovative projects and initiatives rallying those around you in building industry forward, cutting-edge solutions
  • Mentoring and supporting team members, participating in recruiting new talent, and promoting an environment of growth and belonging in partnership with your Engineering Manager.
  • Creating and setting standards for reliable, observable, scalable systems, ensuring their resilience and efficiency.
  • Building and maintaining strong communication via async collaboration, documentation.
  • Participating in ensuring the stability and reliability of our services, both during regular schedule and outside in on-call rotations (compensated).

What You’ll Need:

  • 5+ years’ experience building microservices and RESTful APIs in TypeScript and/or Go
  • A passion for developer experiences and a deep understanding of their challenges and needs
  • A commitment to building exceptional quality products
  • Strong project leadership and technical leadership skills
  • Production experience with CI/CD tools, Kubernetes, Docker

We’d be Lucky if You:

  • Believe we can do more than just review pull requests, and want to unlock that belief
  • Have been working with integrations for GitHub Apps, Bitbucket Connect
  • Have experience with building internal APIs or platform capabilities
  • Are familiar with Application Security, DevSecOps, AST (SAST, SCA, IAST, DAST), or developer tooling


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!
