About Snyk

Snyk’s mission is to help developers use open source code and stay secure.

Job Description

We’re looking for an entrepreneurial and driven individual to join our IT organization to support Snyk’s hyper-growth as an IT Business Partner. The IT Business Partner will serve as a trusted advisor to our Finance and People teams (collectively General & Administrative or G&A) and the interface between those teams, the IT organization, and outside vendors and integrators.

The IT organization’s mission is to 1) deliver a secure, reliable, and scalable IT system, processes, & infrastructure; 2) increase productivity via automation and integration; and define Snyk’s long-term technology ecosystem.

You’ll spend your time:

  • working with key stakeholders across Snyk’s Finance and People teams to obtain an understanding of business requirements and system needs;
  • acting as the key liaison across all functional areas, including business units, the IT department, and outside vendors.
  • collaborating with operations intelligence teams to ensure solution compatibility with company standards.
  • working with business intelligence teams to guide the creation of business-oriented reports based on data available throughout the G&A IT ecosystem
  • collaborating with key stakeholders and IT management to develop annual budgets and roadmaps
  • evaluating proposals, building business cases, and determining how they fit into business and IT roadmaps and priorities;
  • managing the deployment of new technology solutions
  • leading change management initiatives to minimize disruption to the business and improve end-user experience.
  • Collaborating on the intake process and prioritization of candidate projects across the company.

We are distributed across five offices in London, Tel Aviv, Boston, Ottawa, and Zurich with 10% of the company working fully-remote. We’ve made an organizational 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.

You should apply if you:

  • are agile and enjoy the speed of a fast-paced, highly engaged startup environment 
  • have proven experience guiding the implementation of large Finance and HR systems such as Netsuite, Workday, Coupa, Vena, etc.
  • Possess a broad knowledge of most technical and business resources and use them to effectively coordinate team members and external resources.
  • have a baseline understanding of financial statements
  • possess strong business acumen
  • Have 5-10 years of IT and business/industry work experience, with at least 2 years of leadership experience
  • Have worked as a Business Analyst, Project Manager or Program Manager
  • are ridiculously easy to work with - ability to build strong relationships with a broad set of stakeholders that have diverse interests
  • have project/program management skills - ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment
  • have strong communication skills in both formal and informal situations

We’d especially love to hear from you if you:

  • have a high degree of integrity and honesty; ability to exercise confidentiality and neutrality in complex and sensitive situations; and
  • are an effective listener and communicator able to influence actions and outcomes
  • enjoy acquiring new knowledge and skills and can do so quickly
  • act speedily and iteratively - focused on getting things done   

About Snyk

Snyk’s mission is to help developers use open source code and stay secure.

The use of open source is booming, but security is a key concern ( Snyk’s unique product enables developers and enterprise security teams to continuously find & fix vulnerable dependencies without slowing down, offering seamless integration into Dev, DevOps, and DevSecOps workflows. We care deeply about the quality and usefulness of the tools we develop, always focusing on our customers and users.

We are experiencing rapid growth - and we want you to join us! Snyk reaches more than 2.2 million developers across the globe, positioned within organizations such as Salesforce, Google, and JP Morgan. Our most recent March 2021 Series E funding round valued us at over $4.6 Billion.

We believe open-source software is a force for good, and we’re building Snyk to make it easier for developers who aren’t security experts to stay secure.
