Our product enables us to build connections—both big and small—with people in our own backyards and around the world. Our People First Culture ensures that we focus first on the people who develop our products.
Every day, Okta connects millions of people to technology so they can be their most efficient and productive selves.
Our cultural behaviors
At Okta, we talk about our People First Culture built on a community of Builders, Learners, Owners, and Collaborators (BLOCs). These cultural pillars show up in how we work, how we treat each other, what we focus on, and how we live our collective values. As a culture-adding organization, we know that each new employee adds to our evolving culture. As you add to Okta culture to make our vision a reality, we want to create a work environment that empowers you, values your ideas, and recognizes your contributions.
We are people connecting people, and we’re glad you’re here.
Our core values
At Okta, we believe that core values aren’t simply lofty ideas or catchy taglines; they’re directives that inspire positive action and drive results. They inform how we engage with each other and our customers. They give us our voice and shape who we want to be as a company.
Love our customers
Loving our customers means making them successful, and if they’re successful, so are we. We help the world’s largest organizations manage their workforces and secure their customers’ experiences. We connect organizations around the world to their critical infrastructure, and we take that responsibility seriously.
Never stop innovating
We are a company of builders, and we are driven to confront the hard problems and solve them. We know that our ability to win, differentiate ourselves, and drive our industry forward requires relentless innovation—and we love the challenge ahead of us.
Act with integrity
We treat each other, our customers, our partners, and our extended community with honesty, decency, and respect. We don’t commit to offering features we can’t build. We don’t promise to do things we can’t do. And we never—ever—profit from or share confidential customer data. We are honest in the face of adversity and change. We act with integrity in everything we do.
Here at Okta, we operate on transparency. From our earliest days, we’ve had regular All Hands meetings where we share information from the highest level. Maintaining an open flow of information across teams, among individuals, up and down and around the company, is crucial to how we work.
Empower our people
We are Okta: a diverse, passionate community of people who deeply care about our products, brand, and culture. Our community fosters an environment of positive energy, collaboration, and sustainable growth. We’re inclusive, encourage personal development, empower each other to be successful, and do some of the most meaningful work of our careers.
We win together.
