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.

Okta seeks a skilled public relations professional to build awareness of Okta in India. We recently moved into the Indian market as we believe digital identity has enormous potential in the dynamic Indian technology sector. The company is investing to build a dynamic sales engine and innovation center – and now we’re expanding our PR capabilities into the Indian market. This is an exciting opportunity to create an innovative communications program from the ground up. 

Based in Bengaluru, you will report to the International Communications Director, working closely with communicators across APJ and worldwide. You will drive creative storytelling across owned, earned, and paid media — garnering interest in our corporate, thought leadership, technology innovations, customer, and partner stories. 

While you will primarily focus on the Indian market, the position will lead partner PR across the region and oversee project-based awareness plays in secondary markets, including Singapore and Indonesia.  

As an Okta Global Communications team member, you will operate as one of our APJ regional communications hubs to raise brand awareness and manage corporate reputation. You will work with communications experts across the region and worldwide to influence internal and external conversations about Okta, digital identity, and cybersecurity.
