Senior Front End Developer (UI)

At Okta, we’re always innovating across the entire identity landscape, and our customers are always asking to do more with us. As the pace of change in the cloud continues at a rapid pace, the ability to move fast is a competitive advantage. To fund this continuous innovation, Okta has created an incubation program, building and nurturing new products and businesses internally. These projects are given the freedom to build independently like a startup, with the backing support of the Okta organization – the best of both worlds.

This incubation project, currently in stealth mode, is laser focused on helping all developers easily build and maintain API Security. With such a grand vision, we’re looking to assemble an amazing team of strategic go-getters with a relentless focus on execution.

Our team is working with cutting edge web & cloud technologies including Node Js(Express and Fastify), Vue Js, Material UI, Serverless technologies, Redis, Lambda, and NoSql Databases. This is a unique opportunity to get in at the ground level for a highly visible and expansive career opportunity, with an incredible support system in the Okta organization. 

API developers expect a streamlined UI that allows them to go from proof-of-concept to production ready with minimal effort, and the goal of this team is to enable developers to be self-sufficient with all aspects of the Incubation Project’s platform. This role is responsible for building features and components in the Admin Console that help developers configure the platform as an API Security layer for their applications.
