About the Team

As part of Okta CIC Identity and Access Management (IAM), the Highly Regulated Identity product team is responsible for building financial-grade CIAM capabilities for customers in highly regulated industries like financial services and healthcare. These capabilities provide the extra security and policy control required to protect and secure data and transactions while maintaining compliance and intuitive user experiences. This includes building features that support OpenID FAPI (Financial Grade APIs), Open Banking processes, and adding support for regulations such as PSD2, FDX, etc.


You will:

  • Lead and grow a healthy, inclusive, collaborative team rooted in the opportunities they create for customers.
  • Ensure each team member deepens their skills through coaching, training, and mentoring.
  • Work with product and design to build the roadmap for Highly Regulated Identity at Okta CIC. This involves talking to engineers, other teams, and various stakeholders within the company.
  • Review your team’s work to meet high-performance standards.
  • As required, work on relevant stories, tasks, and bugs from your team’s backlog.
  • Tie every piece of work back to the mission of making the internet safer and the business value of making it easier for companies to solve Auth.
  • Have the opportunity to gain a great understanding and context about how Okta CIC works and learn more about security protocols and how to build reliable, highly available systems.

You are a good fit if you:

  • Have experience leading a backend API development team in B2B, fintech or a financial software organization.
  • Skilled at coaching teammates in all phases of their careers.
  • Experience providing focus to teams to enable them to achieve their goals.
  • Hands-on who can help a team evaluate trade-offs during various SDLC phases.
  • Enjoy working in an iterative development environment.
  • Can add value to a conversation even when you are unfamiliar with the entire context.
  • Work well with technical and non-technical people to deliver high-value results.
  • Like to lead by example.
  • Are a great communicator and communication facilitator.

Bonus points if you:

  • Experience working with the Financial and Open Banking market, implementing guidelines and regulations (US FDX, PSD2, UK Open Banking, etc.)
  • Strong technical understanding of OAuth2.0 and OpenID Connect Core specifications. A strong advantage would be having an understanding of OIDC FAPI specifications.
  • Experience working on cloud-native technologies with AWS, Azure, and Kubernetes.
  • Experience managing teams developing features that scale.
  • Experience with native app development, either managing or developing.
