Developer Advocate Intern

We believe that today's "digital identity" is fundamentally flawed. There are too many profiles, registration screens, passwords, privacy violations, data leaks, phishing attacks, and data mining operations out there. Our vision is to make the internet more secure and private with better software, open-source, and open knowledge. Ory is the largest open-source authentication and authorization (login, registration, MFA, permissions, OAuth2,...) ecosystem and community in the world. We develop open-source software and use it to build a scalable, easy-to-use, and secure cloud platform.

As Developer Relations Intern, you will work with an international community of developers, help solve their problems and grow the Ory movement. It is an opportunity to explore a highly social, intellectually stimulating career path at a young, fast-paced startup with a focus on open source software.
