We’re looking for a technically strong product leader to drive our Authentication Platform. Okta’s Authentication Platform allows developers to build secure applications and services. The Platform supports common standards like OAuth 2.0, OIDC, and SAML, robust and configurable policies, and APIs to expose the functionality to developers. In this role, you’ll be setting the strategic direction for the product as well as working closely with engineering to define, prioritize, build, and deliver a roadmap to drive that vision forward. You’ll own the core Authentication components that are the underpinnings of how Okta works, including Okta’s Authentication API and underlying state machine, factor/credential enrollment and lifecycles, and customer identity focused factors like email, push notifications, and SMS. Success in this role requires you to have a technical background, understanding of what makes a great platform, good business sense, and an ability to partner closely with our engineering, design, product marketing, and business development teams at Okta.
Experience building authentication solutions for market-leading products or services is desired. If you can combine that with a deep understanding of building a platform for developers, you’ll fit right in! Success in this role will require both a keen ability to understand customer requirements, define our overall short and long-term strategy, strategically prioritize what’s most important, and work across your PM team and the broader Okta organization to deliver an innovative product.
