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 ;)

Responsibilities:

  • Design and build software development kits (SDKs), written in Go, for developers using the Okta APIs within their web application and CI/CD workflows (a common use case).
  • Interact with developers through GitHub on our open-source repositories, responding to issues and reviewing pull requests
  • Participate in software design and code review for all libraries that the team creates
  • Implement holistic testing strategies to assert we're delivering a good developer experience, including unit, integration, and end-to-end tests
  • Write documentation and how-to content for the libraries that you create

Skills:

  • 4+ years working as a full-stack web developer (you've written production front-end code and back-end code, and can empathize with developers in both realms.)
  • Intermediate to advanced knowledge of the Go 
  • Experience with unit and end-to-end testing
  • Experience working with a product-oriented, agile culture

Bonus Points:

  • Expertise in other languages, such as Java and Python
  • Hands-on experience with CI/CD tools such as Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Terraform
  • Experience interacting with other developers on GitHub (e.g. opening issues, contributing to issues, filing pull requests)
  • Experience building libraries or tools that are used by other developers, either internally within your company or externally on pubic repositories
