It is our great pleasure to officially welcome on board our latest Snyk Ambassadors! As you may already know, Snyk ambassadors are security champions on a mission to help developers build more secure applications.
The first Snyk Ambassadors joined us last year with the goal to help us advocate for developer security and the shift left movement. Since then, we’ve expanded the group to nearly 30 people spread across over 15 countries in the world.
The Snyk Ambassadors are here to share their interests and expertise within their communities and help other developers and engineers build secure software. Their contributions come in various flavors: blog posts, videos, conference talks, live streams, and even the development of training applications. Snyk provides them with technical support whenever needed, early access to our roadmap, direct discussions with the product people, invitations to Snyk-hosted events, and more.
Join us in welcoming our new cohort, and feel free to connect with them across all social media. The easiest way to engage with them all at once is to join our community discord server. It’s a great place to join DevSecOps discussions, learn from each other, and hang out. We can’t wait to see you there
