Be advised that fear, incompetent managers, and cliquey-ness prevail. They'll lure you in with the lip service they pay to work/life balance (which is nonexistent), catered lunches, and onsite fitness classes etc (both of which are ploys to get you to never leave and work round the clock). Basically this is Valley Millennial culture at it's ugliest. The place is teeming with over-indulged, overpaid children. Apply if you're okay with being chained to Slack and email nights and weekends and are cool with passive aggressiveness and managers who prefer to micromanage every task rather than learn how to lead a team, offer guidance, or develop their direct reports.
no work life balance, typical Silicon Valley bro (because I can't use the word I'd like to use) culture, cut throat, fear based atmosphere

This tells me that the product has really come into … Show More
There has been a lot of trial and error in terms of structuring and company layout. You need to be able to roll with the punches here as restructuring often goes hand in hand with poor communication.
The sales training was nonexistent when I arrived. It was good and bad as you really had to figure it out. But when I asked in the interview for specific sales training and they said yes, I was disappointed with the reality.
Great company with innovative approach to Identity & Access Mgt.

Okta provides a unique approach to delivering Identity and Application Security controls as a multi-tenant cloud service. The IAM space though is very competitive. Okta is still a very new name, especially in the Southeast and the adoption of cloud services is still somewhat lagging.
