Imagine being able to build complex automation, without having to write or deploy code. That’s Okta Workflows, our no-code platform. The goal of Workflows is to automate identity-centric processes (like the onboarding and offboarding of employees in different applications), all in a visual, drag and drop interface. As the fastest growing product at Okta, we’ve seen incredible success, and we are looking for great teammates to join a cross-functional team tasked with driving adoption of Okta’s Workflows product.

The Workflows Evangelist is a key player in a cross-functional team driving a wide range of engaging activities across a variety of channels, helping to educate the market around Okta’s no-code Workflows platform and to build a strong community of passionate Workflows Builders among our customers.

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.
