Senior Software Engineer, IAM Enterprise Federations (Customer Identity)

United States

Get to know Okta

Okta is The World’s Identity Company. We free everyone to safely use any technology—anywhere, on any device or app. Our Workforce and Customer Identity Clouds enable secure yet flexible access, authentication, and automation that transforms how people move through the digital world, putting Identity at the heart of business security and growth. 

At Okta, we celebrate a variety of perspectives and experiences. We are not looking for someone who checks every single box - we’re looking for lifelong learners and people who can make us better with their unique experiences. 

Join our team! We’re building a world where Identity belongs to you.

The Enterprise Federations Team

Okta’s Customer Identity Cloud (CIC), powered by Auth0 technology, is an easy-to-implement authentication and authorization platform designed by developers for developers.  We make access to applications safe, secure, and seamless for the more than 100 million daily logins around the world. Our modern approach to identity enables this Tier-Ø global service to deliver convenience, privacy, and security so customers can focus on innovation.

Enterprise Federations is responsible for building and maintaining Auth0’s Enterprise Connections capabilities. B2B SaaS and Enterprise applications often have a need to integrate with other Identity Providers in order to allow their users to authenticate in the way that is most convenient and secure for them. For example, a business already using Customer Identity Cloud for their customer-facing applications and Okta’s Workforce Identity Cloud (or a third-party Identity Provider) for their workforce identity needs may want to allow their own employees to login to their customer apps with their work accounts. This is where Enterprise Connections comes in. This capability allows users to authenticate using a wide variety of Identity Providers through a ‘federated’ connection whilst isolating the application builders from the complexities and idiosyncrasies of each provider.  It is the Enterprise Federations team’s responsibility to make sure this works seamlessly.
