But it’s a big mission that requires a lot of teamwork.

Words, code, or people, whatever your skill, there’s a place for you here

The Auth0 platform secures more than 100 million logins each day for customers all around the world - and we're growing fast! The Platform Services team enables Auth0 engineers to move faster by giving them tools to easily make their services more reliable and scalable. This is a role with a huge impact. You will get to work with engineers throughout the organization and what you build will be a foundational piece of the infrastructure that allows Auth0 to scale for years to come.

We are looking for Platform Seniors Engineers who are passionate about distributed systems, availability, and delivering customer value. Because we build and support tools used by services throughout Auth0, the ideal candidate is someone who is excited about collaborating to solve problems that affect the entire ecosystem of Auth0 services.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Work with engineers across the organization to integrate tooling into the Auth0 service ecosystem.
  • Coach and mentor engineers at all levels up to their peer level.
  • Discover and advocate for new technologies to accelerate improvements in the reliability and scalability of the Auth0 platform.
  • Carry cross-team initiatives from end to end: code reviews, design reviews, operational robustness, security hygiene, etc.
  • Participate in the team's on-call rotation.

We would love to hear from you if you have:

  • 4+ years of software development experience.
  • Are proficient in Golang, Typescript, or Node.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of TCP/IP and HTTP fundamentals.
  • Working with Redis, Kafka and/or PostgreSQL at scale preferred.
  • Tend to deliver work incrementally to get feedback and iterate over solutions.
  • Have a passion for working on systems that are highly reliable, maintainable, scalable and secure.
  • Bring the right attitude to the team: ownership, accountability, attention to detail, and customer focus.
  • Are comfortable working on a fully-distributed team.

Extra Points:

  • Familiarity with gRPC.
  • Have a deep understanding of Kubernetes and containerization.
  • Have experience deploying solutions to AWS and/or Azure.
  • Aware of the best practices when creating Docker images.

Auth0 makes the internet safer by safeguarding billions of login transactions each month.

Our team is spread across more than 35 countries and we are proud to continually be recognized as a great place to work. Culture is critical to us, and we are transparent about our vision and principles. We practice N+1>N which applies to everything from our people to how we iterate our tech; we believe in one team, one score; and we give a shit about everything we do.

Research shows that candidates from underrepresented backgrounds often don’t apply unless they meet all the job criteria. We aren’t looking for someone who ticks every single box on a page; we’re looking for lifelong learners and people who can make us better with their unique experiences. If you think you’d be a great fit, then please get in touch to tell us about yourself.
