Senior Software Engineer, IAM Continuous Authentication

| Seattle
Auth0 is a pre-IPO unicorn. We are growing rapidly and looking for exceptional new team members to add to our teams and will help take us to the next level. One team, one score. 
We never compromise on identity. You should never compromise yours either. We want you to bring your whole self to Auth0. If you’re passionate, practice radical transparency to build trust and respect, and thrive when you’re collaborating, experimenting and learning – this may be your ideal work environment. We are looking for team members that want to help us build upon what we have accomplished so far and make it better every day. N+1 > N.
What's the opportunity?
As we scale Auth0 and handle billions of logins per month, we also have to deal with billions of attacks. Almost 40% of our traffic are bots trying to get access to our customers accounts and our job is to not let that happen.
At the same time we want to provide a great experience to our users and let them know when something suspicious is going on: someone logged in from a device that was not seen before; from a place that would be impossible based on previous activity; from a TOR node; etc.
Finding the right balance between security and user experience is a hard problem to solve. This is the mission of the Continuous Authentication team.

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!
