Women @ Okta
Great Place to Work badge

Okta is certified by Great Place to Work, with 92% of employees surveyed saying it is a great place to work compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

Dynamic Work

Dynamic Work is all about empowering workforces across the globe with flexibility—working from anywhere, with benefits and opportunities customized to their needs, and the knowledge that the office is also a place they can go to connect, create, and engage as needed. Not only does this model grant our employees the flexibility they need to do their best work, but it enables us to build a more diverse hiring pool and bring on amazing candidates from other regions. 

Dynamic Work is going to be the standard for Okta today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Workforce development

We view workforce development as a continuous process that includes both personal and professional growth. We provide in-person and online resources to help our people succeed in their day-to-day work including programs to prepare employees at all levels for career progression. Our extensive learning and development resources encourage our employees to build long and rewarding careers with us. 

We help our people succeed by providing flexibility in where and how they work. We’ve introduced the “Dynamic Work” framework, which enables employees to work from anywhere, while providing comparable benefits, flexible schedules, and work environments and experiences, regardless of their location. Dynamic work is a competitive advantage for Okta, helping us attract and retain talent globally.
