An Insider's view of Auth0

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I am thankful for less wasted time. Prior to having the flexibility of working remotely, I was stressed about everything from daily traffic to making it home in time to put my daughters to bed. Auth0 recognizes the value of time.

Ashley

Customer Success Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I'd say 50% is tackling customer challenges. 30% on product upgrades and patching and configuration tuning. The final 20%... side-projects for learning and process improvement.

Navdeep

Managed Services Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learnt how dynamic a sales organization can be in terms of using software and styles of selling while delivering great info and customer value. Also, how to have fun and still get a lot of work done!

Raine

Inbound ADR

What's something quirky about your company?

To keep connected and build relationships, especially with such a geographically distributed staff, we have a friendly bot in Slack that randomly matches you with two others every second Monday and encourages you to meet in person or over a video call for a coffee, a donut and a casual chat!
