Awesome tech is made by awesome people. And we’re always looking for new team members who bring the energy, passion, commitment, and collaboration that has made Auth0 the great company it is today.

So what do we exactly build? Auth0 is an authentication and authorization platform designed by developers for developers. Basically, we make companies’ login boxes safe, secure, and seamless for anyone logging in. Our mission is to secure the world’s identities so innovators can innovate. 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 mission of the Customer Development Tools team is to make our customers' lives better. Developers all over the world integrate Auth0 into their apps and services thousands of times daily. We want to make that faster, easier, and better by creating tools that make this part of the development lifecycle a frictionless experience. Imagine a world where authentication is added to your app with one command and where the authentication resources are now instantly available in your IDE of choice. That’s what we’re doing, we “Go where the developers go”.

We’re looking for a senior software engineer, a maker and creator, to help us achieve this vision to make our customers’ day to day work easier and enjoyable.
