Android SDK Engineer Staff/Principal (Remote Eligible)

New York, NY SW Eng - Identity-670

Tired of hacking together a login system for every new mobile app? Want to build a beautiful library that makes authentication for any Android app super simple?  Then Okta's Developer Experience team needs you!

Okta is an extensible identity platform and our APIs allows developers at companies of all sizes to integrate authentication and authorization solutions into their applications and platforms. The Developer Experience team is responsible for sharing the love with those developers by identifying common use cases and writing tools that make their lives easier, while helping them understand our product and the protocols that we support.

In this role you will be working in our Open Source Software (OSS) program and will gain invaluable experience with library design and development, as well as interacting with a community of engaged developers who use your work on a daily basis.  You will continue to deepen your knowledge of the Android ecosystem by writing SDKs that other developers will use in real-world, production applications that reach millions of users.  This role provides the opportunity to design right, code right, and test right.

We are a team of polyglots. Our whole team works closely together to design solutions that work across languages and environments. We're looking for an Android expert, but also value a generalist mindset.
