Go SDK Engineer at Okta
Remote › 100% remote position (in the US) (Posted Dec 4 2020)
About the company
Okta is a publicly traded identity and access management company based in San Francisco. We provides cloud software that help companies manage and secure user authentication into modern applications, and for developers to build identity controls into applications, website web services and devices.
Okta's Developer Experience team is looking for an experienced web application developer, with current experience with the Go language.
Okta is an extensible identity platform and our services allow developers at companies of all sizes to integrate Okta into their own applications. The Developer Experience team is responsible for sharing the love with those developers by identifying common use cases and creating tools and SDKs that make their lives easier, while helping them understand our product and the protocols that we support.
In this role you will be working on the leading edge of our Open Source Software (OSS) program and will gain invaluable experience with library design and development, as well as interacting with a community of engaged developers who use your work on a daily basis. Your code will see production scale usage at many companies, being embedded directly into applications and services that enable internet scale applications with large numbers of end users. This role provides the opportunity to design right, code right, and test right, and deepen your knowledge of the Go ecosystem, and understand how developers are using it in their applications.
We are a polyglot team and while we are looking for Go, we also value a generalist mindset and co-learning across stacks. We work closely as a team to design solutions that work across languages and environments.
Interested in the work we do? It's open source, check us out on GitHub ;)
