JavaScript SDK Engineer (Senior, Staff, Principal)

 Position Description:

Okta's Developer Experience team is looking for a JavaScript developer to join us as we build open-source widgets and toolkits for the Okta platform.  Okta is an extensible identity platform and our APIs allows developers at companies of all sizes to integrate our secure solutions into their own applications.  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 on the leading edge of 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 wok on a daily basis.  You will continue to deepen your knowledge of JavaScript by writing libraries (front-end and back-end) that other developers will use in real-world, production applications.  This role provides the opportunity to design right, code right, and test right.  

We are a polyglot team and while we are looking for more JavaScript experience we also value a generalist mindset and co-learning across domains.  We work closely as a team to design solutions that work across languages and environments. In addition to Javascript experience we are looking for developers who have backend experience with .NET applications.

Interested in the work we do?  It's open source, check us out on Github ;)


  • Design and build software development kits (SDKs) and other tooling for the Okta API Products, primarily in JavaScript
  • Interact with our customers through Github, responding to issues and reviewing pull requests
  • Participate in software design and code review for all libraries that the team creates
  • Implement holistic testing strategies to assert we're delivering a good developer experience, including unit, integration, and end-to-end tests
  • Write documentation for the libraries that we create

Minimum Skills:

  • 4+ years working as a full-stack web developer (you've written production front-end code and back-end code, and can empathize with developers in both realms.)
  • 2+ years working with JavaScript as your primary language (you have a favorite ES6 feature, and probably an opinion on yarn vs npm) 
  • Written a production Node.js application
  • Experience with JavaScript unit and end-to-end testing

Bonus Skills:

  • Experience with .NET applications 
  • Experience with React
  • Experience writing JavaScript tests with modern tools like Jest or Protractor
