Auth0 Senior Software Engineer, Identity

  We are looking for a Senior Engineer to join our Protocols team! This team is responsible for building out the core features of our authorization server with a focus on OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0. All of the authentication and authorization transactions running through Auth0 will depend on your code, giving you the opportunity to work as part of a core product team.   You will often work with other teams both within the Engineering organization and outside of it, in order to get a better understanding of customer needs and the impact of changes you perform.

You will:

  • Collaborate with other engineers and teams to implement new features, improvements and fixes that need to handle our current and future scale.
  • Instrument, monitor and operate the code you write and services you build. This includes on-call rotations.
  • Help with design and code reviews. Ensure good engineering practices are being applied.

You might be a good fit for this role if you:

  • Have 5+ years of software development experience.
  • Take an iterative approach to development, dividing long-term goals into incremental milestones.
  • Have experience working in a global remote-first organization.
  • Are a good communicator and enjoy interacting with people.
  • Place a high value on security.
  • Bring the right attitude to the team: ownership, accountability, attention to detail.
  • Have familiarity with the tools we currently use such as MongoDB, Node.js (or JavaScript), Java, TypeScript or any other concurrency-friendly language.
  • Bonus: Have any knowledge of the OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect, SAML and other specifications. 
  It’s not expected that a single candidate has expertise in all these areas. We’re looking for professional engineers, who can quickly learn and adapt as our systems and situation changes, rather than candidates with a rigid skill set.   You can learn more about our hiring process here.     Okta is rethinking the traditional work environment, providing our employees with the flexibility to be their most creative and successful versions of themselves, no matter where they are located.  We enable a flexible approach to work, meaning for roles where it makes sense, you can work from the office, or from home, regardless of where you live.  Okta invests in the best technologies and provides flexible benefits and collaborative work environments/experiences, empowering employees to work productively in a setting that best and uniquely suits their needs.  Find your place at Okta https://www.okta.com/company/careers/.
