Tired of hacking together a login system for every new mobile app? Want to build a beautiful library that makes authentication for any iOS app super simple? Then Okta's Developer Experience team needs you!
Okta is an extensible identity platform and our APIs allow developers at companies of all sizes to integrate authentication and authorization solutions into their applications and platforms. The Developer Experience team is responsible for sharing the love with those developers by identifying common use cases and writing tools that make their lives easier while helping them understand our product and the protocols that we support.
In this role, you will be working in our Open Source Software (OSS) program and will gain invaluable experience with library design and development, as well as interacting with a community of engaged developers who use your work daily. You will continue to deepen your knowledge of the iOS ecosystem by writing SDKs that other developers will use in real-world, production applications that reach millions of users. This role provides the opportunity to design right, code right, and test right.
We are a team of polyglots. Our whole team works closely together to design solutions that work across languages and environments. We're looking for an iOS expert but also value a generalist mindset.
