Senior Engineer (Fine Grained Authorization) at Auth0
Auth0 is a unicorn that just closed a $120M Series F round of funding, with total capital raised to date of $330M and valuation of nearly $2B. We are growing rapidly and looking for exceptional new team members to add to our exceptional talent pool - and who will help take us to the next level of success. One team, one score. 
Our vision is to provide people with secure access to any application in one click or less. And our promise is to make identity work for everyone—whether you’re a developer looking to innovate, or a security professional looking to mitigate. We are looking for curious, excited, boundary-pushing team members. So, if you’re a big thinker who is nimble and adaptable, Auth0 may be an ideal place for you to shine.
About this specific role:
We are building project "Sandcastle": a new product for large scale, fine grained authorization (FGA). It uses a globally distributed database and Relationship Based Access control, and is based on Google's Zanzibar paper. In addition to the challenges of building a world scale distributed system, building from scratch means that: we spend a lot of time talking to customers, generating awareness about the product, writing content and implementing quick starts, SDKs, etc. Think of it as having the breadth and experiences of working at a small startup with the budget and certainty of a late-stage startup.
If you'd rather build new products rather than "just" write software, this is a great opportunity for you.
We are looking for an engineer who enjoys building new products (i.e. going from 0 to 1). These are some of the things we are looking for:
- You have product sense (i.e. you can connect customer problems with solutions).
- You are curious and go beyond what says in a Jira ticket.
- You want to understand the big picture.
- You like talking to customers (developers) to learn about their problems and you apply those learnings back to the product.
- You enjoy writing tutorials and samples to show others how to use the service.
- You are comfortable with doing multiple things.

You will:

  • Design and implement features to make implementing FGA a delightful experience. We'll be doing many things such as implementing an admin dashboard, working on the core authz engine, implementing connectors to feed data into Sandcastle and integrating with Auth0.
  • Create content, such as blog posts, live streams, tutorials and quickstarts to showcase Sandcastle's capabilities and use cases.
  • Talk to prospects and customers to both learn how to improve the product and sell it to them.
  • Work with our customer community to answer their questions in forums, social media, tickets and chat.
  • Implement SDKs and sample projects to show how Sandcastle can be used with different languages and runtimes.

You might be a good fit if you:

  • You love to build products for developers.
  • You can learn very quickly. We don't need you to know everything, but being able and willing to learn is key.
  • Have t-shaped skills and enjoy using and improving them.
  • You have a good product sense (i.e. you can connect customer problems with solutions).
  • You crave to understand the big picture, as it helps you make better decisions.
  • You like talking to customers (developers) to learn about their problems and you apply those learnings back to the product.
  • Live in the United States, Canada, Argentina, Spain, Poland or the United Kingdom.

What you bring:

  • 2+ years of experience working on cloud applications.
  • 6+ years of software development experience.
  • Great ability to collaborate with others.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills in English.

Preferred Locations:

  • #US; #CA; #AR; #ES; #PL; #UK;
