Its extensible platform seamlessly authenticates and secures more than 2.5B logins per month, making it loved by developers and trusted by global enterprises.

We are consistently recognized as a great place to work based our outstanding leadership and dedication to company culture, and are looking for the best people to join our incredible team spread across more than 35 countries!
We value ownership and innovation, and we build our teams with that in mind. We want each team to be responsible and accountable for what they ship but we don't want to reinvent the wheel. Our philosophy to achieve this is relying on excellent tooling and automation over policies and processes, creating a pit of success that naturally gets teams to align in terms of practices and technologies.
That is the Auth0 Platform (internal PaaS): a set of internal tools and services that development teams use to make their life easier when shipping their features. As we continue to grow, we are creating new teams that own more specific parts of Auth0. To encourage and simplify operational ownership, we will be splitting our existing services into smaller, more decoupled ones that separate teams will own. At the same time, we want to allow new teams that are forming to quickly be able to go from development to production in a reliable way and following recommended practices.
Teams should be able to set up core pieces like observability, reliable deployment mechanisms, secure communication channels, database access and capacity planning with minimal overhead required from their side.

- Collaborate with Product Managers and Engineering teams to build Auth0's internal PaaS in order to enable other development teams to build on Auth0's vision of "conquering the world one login box a time."
- Spend time working with internal customers to understand their needs and sell them on the Auth0 platform
