Developer Solutions Engineer - Japan

Tokyo; Osaka; Nagoya; Fukuoka

We’re an identity company. Identity matters because we’re all unique. We were raised in countries, cities, and towns. We have unique backgrounds. We’ve faced specific challenges. And we’ve learned a lot along the way. At Okta we believe those experiences equip us to look at the world with our own perspective. Our product protects your right to be you, and we want every single one of our employees to feel a sense of belonging, acceptance, and comfort to express their ideas, because ultimately our differences are what makes us great.

At Okta our goal is simple - to be The Identity for the Internet and to accelerate a world where everyone can safely use any technology.
