Engineering Manager, Account Services

Account Services is a new team we are creating in response to our growing needs.  We want to give customers a means to control their tenants across various geographies.  The product will be built primarily for Managed Service Providers to manage their tenants.  The Account Service layer will give customers a control plane to manage their resources across various tenants.  

The Account Services layer will allow customers to perform configuration tasks such as enabling purchased SKUs, view their consumption levels, and perform user group password resets across various tenants.

The Account Services layer is a new concept that does not currently exist at Okta.  The team will be tasked with implementing several foundational concepts that will require interaction with other Engineering teams at Okta.  

This is an exciting opportunity to work on a greenfield development project within an established company. We are looking for a self starter who is looking for an opportunity to  get involved in the creation of a new product.
