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 a Security company and Auth0's Security team is in the privileged position of supporting a Security-first culture for a company that wants to make the internet safer. 
Do you enjoy working on a blue team with a group of highly motivated and skilled engineers all huddled together in a video call hunting for evidence of exploitation in logs, comparing your findings with the group, and bouncing ideas off of each other?  Perhaps you enjoy working with others to build and deploy complex security systems on quarter long projects where you will face various challenges and get to play with the latest security technology?  If so, then then you’ve found the right career at the right company.  
Two of our key values at Auth0 are:  N+1>N and One Team One Score.  Whether you are a junior or a 10 year veteran to security engineering, you will have numerous opportunities to learn and grow as an engineer on our team as we are a highly collaborative group.

  • Maintain current knowledge and skills to keep up with the rapidly changing threat landscape.
  • Perform regular on-call responsibilities, including fulfilling various incident response team roles.
  • Work together with other security engineers and stakeholders to architect and deploy enterprise security solutions.

Our ideal candidate will have:
