We’re looking for a talented software engineer to join our SAST security team to work on our ML-enhanced pipeline and internal tooling and enable our analysts to efficiently curate and triage SAST security rules that power our Snyk Code offering. 

The security 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 our SAST product, Snyk Code.

  • Have experience leading and designing projects
