Senior/Group Product Manager, Advanced Server Access Management

Position Description

Securely and seamlessly enabling access to servers and infrastructure is a hard problem. Long-lived keys and certificates can be compromised; adding secondary authentication to machines is painstaking and doesn’t scale. Making sure internal IT and DevOps only have the right level of access, for the shortest amount of time possible, is not easily accomplished with legacy approaches. At Okta, we believe that there is a new paradigm evolving for how to secure access. This new security architecture, Zero Trust, will impact every business that touches the cloud and will challenge the prior patterns and technical approaches. It's a transformative change and we at Okta want to partner with our customers on the journey to provide them with the products and services they need to be successful. With Okta’s acquisition of ScaleFT, we are bringing a zero trust based server access management product to market. As the product owner, you will own and drive the vision, strategy, execution of how servers and containers should be securely accessed.

As the advanced server access management PM, you will be responsible for:

1 – Deeply understanding the security challenges for secure server access: you will be an expert in the security challenges for server access. You understand the limitations and gaps for legacy approaches.

2 – Engage your customers and understand their needs: you will empathize with the challenges of DevOps and internal IT teams and you will evangelize their needs. You are the internal champion for your product users. You will understand the challenges they face in moving workloads to the cloud and onto different IaaS platforms. You will form strong opinions on the best way to solve each challenge.

3 – Set the strategy and vision: you will be responsible for driving the strategy for a world-class server access product and experience. You understand where the competition is moving. You understand market trends and dynamics for IaaS offerings.

4 – You methodically prioritize and execute: You will take responsibility for the end to end product experience from administration to seamless user access. You will partner with engineering and UX teams to deliver a #1 product in this category. You will engage with marketing counterparts to bring the product to market.


Experience developing market-leading enterprise products is helpful. Strong functional experience in devops, IaaS, identity management, or security is a major plus! Success in this role will require an ability to understand customer requirements, define our strategy, and work across Okta to ensure delivery of a compelling product.

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
