Software Engineer, IAM Risk at Auth0 () (allows remote)
Type: Full Time
Created: 2021-08-08 05:01:16
What's the opportunity?
As we scale Auth0 and handle billions of logins per month, we also have to deal with billions of attacks. Almost 40% of our traffic are bots trying to get access to our customers accounts and our job is to not let that happen.
At the same time we want to provide a great experience to our users and let them know when something suspicious is going on: someone logged in from a device that was not seen before; from a place that would be impossible based on previous activity; from a TOR node; etc.
Finding the right balance between security and user experience is a hard problem to solve. This is the mission of the IAM Risk team.
- Dive deep into our data to make sense of new attacks vs legit patterns.
- Partner with our design team to convey this data in a user friendly way.
- Become an expert in fighting hackers and botnets.
- Strive for high availability and performance by continuously tweaking the engine.
- Learn about the errors and incidents in production while participating in the on-call rotation.
- Identify and resolve production issues and implement fixes for them.
You might be a good fit for this role if you:
- Have 5+ years technical and engineering experience with the following:
- Expertise in ES6 & Node.js.
- Excellent communication and cross-functional collaboration skills.
- Deploying Cloud based applications
- Working within a continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) environment.
- Awareness of the importance of security on design decisions.
- Learn and integrate new technologies quickly.
- Creation of public APIs and you enjoy the process of doing it.
- Are passionate about working on systems that are highly-reliable, maintainable and scalable.
- Experience with Typescript, React.js.
- Experience in the identity and access management (IAM) domain.
- Exposure to security engineering and application security.
- Familiarity with unit testing, Test-Driven Development, and Behaviour Driven Development
- Working knowledge of modern identity protocols and standards like OpenID Connect, OAuth2, and SAML.
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.
