This role is for you if you like being at the center of the action, if you like to be responsible for some of the most substantial changes to the core Auth0 product that you can be.
IAM Core is the Engineering Domain that takes care of the core of the Auth0 product: the authentication pipeline, the protocols, the sessions, anomaly detection and customer security detection and response mechanisms.
The Core Protocols team is responsible for managing, maintaining, and expanding all authentication related interfaces for Auth0, and we’re looking to grow the team to deliver on some high impact features in the near future. The Core Protocols team will expand our existing offering to make them even more secure through implementing additional support for financial grade APIs. If you’ve signed in on a TV using your smartphone, logged into some of the biggest brands' websites or apps, you’ve likely worked with Auth0. This team will be responsible for some of the most significant expansion in our authentication offerings ever.
If you like taking hard problems at scale and making them simpler, we can’t wait to talk to you.

- You have 5+ years of software development experience
- You have experience creating and maintaining public APIs
