Get to know Okta
Okta is The World’s Identity Company. We free everyone to safely use any technology—anywhere, on any device or app. Our Workforce and Customer Identity Clouds enable secure yet flexible access, authentication, and automation that transforms how people move through the digital world, putting Identity at the heart of business security and growth.
At Okta, we celebrate a variety of perspectives and experiences. We are not looking for someone who checks every single box - we’re looking for lifelong learners and people who can make us better with their unique experiences.
Join our team! We’re building a world where Identity belongs to you.
As a Developer Advocate at Auth0, your job is to inspire, educate, and guide developers to better secure their applications. Developer advocates have two main focuses. The first is to educate developers about Auth0 by Okta and identity through speaking at events, creating live and recorded video content, writing, appearing on podcasts, and other creative mediums within your community. The second is to serve the larger developer community by answering questions and listening to feedback at events, on forums, GitHub, social media, and Slack and Discord servers. You will then take that information and share it with other marketing, engineering, and documentation teams at Auth0 to help improve our developer experience. These two objectives also include working on programs like Auth0 Ambassadors, collaborating with engineering teams, working on open source libraries, and building internal tooling and reporting applications. For all of these tasks, you will measure your impact both quantitatively and qualitatively and adjust course as needed.
