An Insider's view of Auth0

What are some social events your company does?

As Auth0 is 60% remote, every year there is an offsite event which is usually located somewhere in Mexico. The offsites are super fun to get everyone together! This year we had to get a little more creative with virtual events such as HH, Scavenger Hunts and U++. While it’s not the offsite, I appreciate the effort to bring teams closer.

Lead, Technical Account Management

What does your typical day look like?

Auth0 empowers its employees. You are empowered to get things done and make an impact. This has been evident from when I first joined the company two and a half years ago. I've been given opportunities to experiment, leading to both successes and failures. However, I've been empowered to learn from both and grow my career here.
