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.

  • Recruiting all critical functions, including Sales, Presales, SDRs, Partner reps, and Gov. Affairs.
  • Partnering and aligning Customer Solutions (post-sales), Marketing, and finance teams to support our Public Sector mission
  • Forecasting, setting goals, and ensuring the team drives pipeline, new business, and customer expansion/renewal.
  • Leading the Snyk response to federal proposals
  • Providing Public Sector market feedback to our product team to properly align our roadmap from the vision of our top customers

What You’ll Need:

  • History of working on a senior leadership team or at a comparable level in an organization
