It is installed in /snap/bin/intellij-idea-community

And you run it by intellij-idea-community

enter image description here

$ sudo snap install intellij-idea-community --classic
intellij-idea-community 2019.3.3 from jetbrains✓ installed

$ which intellij-idea-community 

$ intellij-idea-community
