The Massive Enterprise Identity Market

There is not a single large organization that doesn’t need what Strata has to offer. Identity security is a foundational technology that every company needs no matter what industry they are in. A great aspect of Strata is that you can call on virtually any name brand organization and be confident that someone in the organization needs what we offer. That’s why companies like Kroger, 3M, Publix, HEB, Cummins, Navy Federal Credit Union, State of Minnesota and the County of Dallas all chose to partner with Strata and solve their most pressing needs in identity.

Strata The Company

Strata is a venture-backed startup building the next generation of distributed identity management for the multi-cloud world. Led by a visionary team of serial entrepreneurs (with multiple exits) who created the first generation of Web identity management, the first IDaaS solution, co-authored SAML, and now are creating the Identity Orchestration market.

This is truly a ground-floor opportunity for a Sales Development Representative that wants to have a hand in building the future of the multi-billion dollar, multi-cloud identity market.

The Team

At Strata, we built the team around a core culture of collaboration, authenticity, and respect. At Strata we have what we call the Maverics Spirit that is a mix of courage, confidence and grit that combines to reveal the best characteristics of our team. We invest heavily in company culture and celebrate our successes weekly while executing like no other team in the industry.

The Product

Strata’s platform - Maverics - is identity middleware that connects identity infrastructure (Okta, Microsoft, Ping, AWS and others) with applications to modernize security and automate IT processes, all without requiring any rewriting of applications saving millions of dollars in measurable expenses.

Strata works closely with our partners at Microsoft Azure, Okta, AWS, GCP, and VMware to ensure interoperability through deep, native integrations. We build our software to be secure, scalable, and extensible; you help bring it to the world.

Secure. We take security seriously and build it into the core of what we develop and how we run our platform.

Scalable. Strata’s customers rely on our software to secure their core business operations, meaning we need to be available 99.999%.

Extensible. Strata built the Maverics platform for distributed identity management to support evolving use cases that our customers bring us. As such, we build our software to easily integrate with and manage many other identity infrastructure systems.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced software engineer to work on our distributed-identity orchestration platform, Maverics. You will join an engineering team that strongly believes in designing for security, reliability, and scale with diligent code reviews and the world’s first distributed identity orchestration platform.

Our elite engineering team is fast, creative, and agile; with a rapid, agile release cycle and values autonomy and accountability. We expect great things from our engineers and reward you with stimulating new projects, emerging technologies, and the chance to significantly impact a company that is changing the identity management landscape forever.

  • Take an agile, iterative approach to development, dividing long-term goals into incremental milestones.
  • Enjoy being part of a highly collaborative, hybrid-friendly environment.
  • Are self-directed, yet feel equally comfortable contributing in a team environment.
