Product Manager Developer Experience

Last updated one month ago
Location:San Francisco, California
Job Type:Full Time

Position description

There are millions of websites, mobile apps, and API services in the world. A large percentage of these apps require users to register, log in, etc. Okta wants to be the foundation upon which all these apps are built.

Our goal is to become the most used authentication and authorization service for developers worldwide.

To do this, we need your help!

Creating a good developer experience is key to our vision. When a developer visits Okta's documentation or signs up for our developer trial, we want it to be intuitive and straightforward to add Okta to their application. That starts with great documentation, a clear onboarding process, and good SDKs for popular languages/frameworks… and grows from there!

We're looking for a product manager to own the end-to-end experience for developers. That means everything from the first touchpoints a developer has on, to developer onboarding, to successful testing and deployment of their first application. We're seeking someone who feels empathy for the developer persona and advocates for great developer experience. Come join a team building the future of digital identity!
