Sr. Engineer, IAM Continuous Authentication

What's the opportunity?

As we scale Auth0 and handle billions of logins per month, we also have to deal with billions of attacks. Almost 40% of our traffic are bots trying to get access to our customer's accounts and our job is to not let that happen.

At the same time we want to provide a great experience to our users and let them know when something suspicious is going on: someone logged in from a device that was not seen before; from a place that would be impossible based on previous activity; from a TOR node; etc.

Finding the right balance between security and user experience is a hard problem to solve. This is the mission of the Continuous Authentication team.
