We’re looking for University students pursuing a Computer Science or related degree who are interested in a 2023 Summer Internship and are passionate about helping us make digital living safe and seamless for everyone.
Today there are millions of websites, mobile apps, and API services in the world, and most of these depend on identity as a key layer to deliver value. However, the end user experiences for creating, managing and using one’s identity on these apps and services have not significantly changed in the last two decades. Users are still dealing with hundreds of usernames and passwords to proxy their relationships with businesses. As Okta, we believe the users are ready for a better experience, and our goal is to fundamentally rethink and redefine what the future of identity looks like across the Internet.
We are a small, agile, and growing team of talented engineers, who are bringing Okta’s expertise and experience in identity to the personal world. With an emphasis on a consumer-first mindset, we leverage rapid iteration and ongoing experimentation to build the best product for our users. Working cross-functionally with Product, Design, Research, and others, we depend on our ability to communicate openly and collaborate well.
Job Duties and Responsibilities:
- Work with the engineering team to develop and deliver highly scalable software used daily by millions of users
- Drive evaluation, development, and roll-out of new features in our mobile iOS application
- Help with design and code reviews. Ensure high programming standards by writing unit and functional tests.
- Collaborate across Product, Design and Engineering teams
Minimum Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
- Interest in mobile software development that supports building highly reliable, consumer-facing software.
- Knowledge of building simple iOS apps using Xcode, SwiftUI(UIKit), and Swift
- Knowledge of iOS development
- Past summer internship experience, ideally in consumer software companies
Nice to have:
- Customer identity experience
- Web development experience
- Experience with modern cloud infrastructure (AWS, Azure, GCP)
Education and Training: (In progress) B.S. or MS in Computer Science or related field
