Senior Technical Product Marketing Manager - CIAM

Do you enjoy being hands on with cutting-edge technology, crafting stories, and influencing product strategy? Are you interested in working on cloud products that power sign-in experiences for hundreds of millions of people today? Okta’s Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) products enable intuitive and trustworthy experiences for customer- and partner-facing apps for thousands of companies including HPE, MLB, JetBlue, and Dignity Health.

Getting CIAM right is critical for organizations as customer and partner interactions increasingly move to digital channels. Unfortunately, threats to user security and privacy have also never been higher. Our small but mighty team is looking for an experienced technical product marketer who can drive our understanding of the shifting landscape and showcase how Okta can protect users while also improving their experience (help us kill passwords!). This is a fast growing market with a huge opportunity in front of us.

As a Senior Technical Product Marketing Manager (TPMM), you will play a critical role in our journey: help Okta inform, inspire, empower, and delight internal and external technical audiences – developers, tech leaders, PMs, architects, and builders – as they choose and adopt our CIAM products for their apps and APIs. You will do that by creating technical narratives and content to enable our customers and field teams to understand, design, and implement critical CIAM projects ranging from building highly scalable apps to unifying customer identities across applications and channels.

Job Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Be a technical subject matter expert for Okta’s CIAM products. This includes understanding how our authentication, authorization and user management products are built and exposed via our pre-built UIs, SDKs, and APIs.
  • Launch new product capabilities together with product management and product marketing teams with differentiated customer- and field-facing content.
  • Create high-quality technical content such as demos, case studies, white papers, blog posts, and other assets.
  • Understand the customer identity challenges of the world’s largest organizations and figure out how Okta helps solve those problems. 
  • Provide SME support for analyst briefs, events, and customer engagements.

Minimum Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • 4+ years of technical / product marketing, product management, or sales engineering experience for an enterprise IaaS or SaaS company or developer platform.
  • Proven track record of marketing or selling to a highly technical audience within large organizations. 
  • Demonstrated experience in developing technical marketing content, sales enablement training, and tools. 
  • Capable of building demos that require software development knowledge, such as the use of APIs and webhooks, and familiarity with tools such as Postman, Github, etc (feel free to share your GitHub profile and samples!)
  • A degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related technical field. 

((Colorado, New York, Washington only*) Minimum salary of $154,000/year + bonus + equity + benefits)
