Title of Job: Cloud Enterprise Architect

Role Location: Remote

Reports to: Director - Presales

The Cloud Enterprise Architect at Okta is involved in all stages of the customer's development lifecycle and are comfortable using presentations, email, phone and social media to connect with customers. We are looking for team players that can create sales presentations, product demonstrations, and educate customers (everyone from developers to product managers to C-level executives) on the best ways to cloud security technology. Okta's Cloud Enterprise Architects empathize with customers and quickly discern their true technical needs by asking detailed and clarifying questions and presenting solutions that target those needs. You have the rare combination of technical savviness and business acumen and you're looking for a career where you can utilize both. As a Cloud Enterprise Architect at Okta, you will hone each of these skills by advising a diverse set of customers on what is possible using Okta's Identity Platform.

Cloud Enterprise Architects work with Sales Engineers on the most complex customer environments. In this role, you will be challenged daily to show customers how Okta can work in their environment. Our team of architects is made up of some of the most experienced and skilled identity and access management experts in the industry. We are looking for people that have had experience deploying identity and access management in large customer environments. This hands-on experience and exposure to the operational aspect of real customer deployments is what sets you apart and provides credibility to the architectures proposed by the sales team. Your storied experience with other products and legacy solutions will prove valuable when assessing a customer's existing challenges and planning the roadmap for them to modernize and transition to the Okta platform.
