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.

Stephanie

Lead, Technical Account Management

What does your typical day look like?

As Auth0 handles 2.5 billion logins per month, security is a top priority for everyone. As a Security Engineer, my day includes reviews and discussions with Engineering teams to make sure that each stage of the development lifecycle has gone under security review. I may also attend one of our donut meetings; a way to virtually meet other Auziros.

Eva

Product Security Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

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.

Adam

Sr. Director of Governance, Risk, and Compliance

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I empower my team to be more creative by encouraging them to bring their whole selves to work. By providing a safe and nurturing environment for our employees we allow them to maximize their creative potential.

Joan

Chief Security Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Today, we’re focused on striking the right balance between preserving what’s so powerful and unique about the Auth0 culture and allowing it to organically evolve based on all the new, incredibly talented people joining Auth0. It’s really a combination of aligned values and behaviors paired with an unwavering commitment to Inclusion and Belonging.
