Senior Product Manager, Security Platforms

Position Description:

Okta’s Security Platforms team builds platform services that keep our customers secure and protect them against attack and abuse. On this team, you will work with security engineers, data scientists and machine learning experts to deliver bold and industry-differentiated product innovations to mitigate top problems such as large-scale identity attacks, account takeovers, account creation abuse, session hijacking and more. 

We are looking for a Senior Product Manager with a strong technical and security background, good business sense and ability to partner closely with engineering, data science, design, and product marketing teams to deliver world-class security platform services.

This Senior Product Manager role will focus on Okta’s Risk Engine. Our Risk Engine powers Risk-Based Authentication and detects anomalous behavior that might indicate targeted attacks on a user level. It leverages key inputs such as user behavior, geo-location and other contextual data to evaluate the risk level of each authentication attempt. Because the Okta Risk Engine relies on Machine Learning to generate unique insights about user behavior, the candidates for this role should understand ML concepts.

The RIsk Engine will  ingest near real-time feeds from a best-of-breed partner ecosystem in order to achieve continuous assessment of security posture. Okta’s Risk Engine is a key component of our multi-layered security intelligence solution to help organizations achieve a Zero Trust security posture and differentiate Okta from other identity and access providers.

Your primary responsibilities in these areas will include:

  •  Discovering opportunities: Understanding key customer requirements, market trends and integration use cases for security products. Our business is dependent on Okta integrating with our customers’ existing security technologies and customer environments. 
  • Fiercely prioritizing: You will own the product strategy and roadmap for Risk Engine, a key investment area in Okta’s Security Platforms portfolio. You will also own the roadmap for the Data Science team that supports the Risk Engine.
  • Executing: You live and breathe delivery. You collaborate with architecture, engineering and UX to design and ship features that are platform-first, delight customers and put us ahead of the competition.
