We’re working to create a better tomorrow for millions of people around the world.
You’ll build and grow with us, and we want to make sure you have the resources you need to be productive and engaged at each point of your career—when you join us, as you take on new opportunities, as you engage with your manager, and when you think about the professional development and coaching you need.
So, get connected to all that Okta has to offer you—at work, at home, and in your community.
We couldn’t do this without you, and we’re proud to say it: Working with Okta will be one of the best opportunities of your life!
The New Hire Guide on the Okta People Wiki includes all of your initial calls to action as you join Okta. You’ll see a summary below.
