We're looking for a passionate product leader to take our Credential Platform to the next level. Okta's industry-leading access management product allows organizations to protect their applications while providing a delightful experience to their users. The underpinnings of any secure access experience for an application will be made of strong credentials for authenticating a user. The domain of the credential platform includes passwords, email, SMS, voice, push notifications, FIDO/U2F, Yubikeys, and many more. Your audience will be split across non-technical admins and developers, and you will get the opportunity to work both internally and externally. To succeed, you will need to develop a technical understanding of credentials, enrollment and recovery policies, and authentication flows, and translate that to a simple and flexible credential platform. You should expect to partner closely with our engineering, design, product marketing, and business development teams.
Our goal is to deliver a platform for credentials, not one-offs for individual requirements and factors. Experience building market-leading products and services with a high degree of scalability and platformization for different customer use cases is desired. Having a passion for delivering those capabilities in a user-friendly way will make you a perfect fit for the role.
This will be a highly technical role, requiring the ability to define effective architectures for modeling policies, with an understanding of the downstream consumers and the developer tools through which our authentication capabilities will be delivered, including APIs, SDKs, widgets, mobile apps, backend services and front end experiences.
You should have a keen ability to understand customer requirements, strategically prioritize what's most important for the short- and long-term, and collaborate with your PM team and Okta as a whole to deliver an innovative product.
