Our mission is to help developers use open source code and stay secure.
The use of open source software is booming: technology is integral to almost every facet of our lives, and almost all software developers rely on open source components.
We’re so used to using open source that we treat it like our own code - but it’s not. What’s more, anyone can find and exploit vulnerabilities within this code, and most open source maintainers aren’t security experts. With open source software, security is a key concern.
At Snyk, we believe that the open source world and the community around it is a force for good. We’ve brought together a team of security experts and talented software developers to make it easier for everyone to use open source safely.
Over 150,000 developers already depend on our enterprise-grade solution to find and fix their vulnerable dependencies: our users apply up to 500,000 patches each month! We protect more than 100,000 open source projects, and we have many large organisations on board, including Google, New Relic and ASOS.
We receive regular contributions (and love!) from the community, we have some fantastic partners amplifying our reach, and 1,600 badges in GitHub championing us, including top projects like FreeCodeCamp and request.
We recently raised $22m from investors such as Accel, GV and Heavybit, demonstrating that they are as excited as we are by Snyk’s progress and potential.
We care deeply about the warm, inclusive working environment we've fostered, where we can benefit from the different perspectives within our team. We are collaborative, curious, and respectful - it’s important to us that everyone feels comfortable contributing their ideas and views.
We are around 140 people (and counting!), distributed across four offices in London, Tel Aviv, Boston and Ottawa, with 10% of the company working fully-remote. We’ve made an organisational commitment to building a strong, effective, distributed company: we form teams across multiple offices wherever possible, and we invest in communication so that we can benefit from each others’ perspectives. As well as an always-on webcam so we can see what’s happening in each office, we make heavy use of video calls, Slack, and some inter-office travel.
