Executive Assistant

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.

You will provide organizational support to Ory leadership to ensure smooth operations and communications. Together with the CEO, you will provide a core leadership function that collaborates with UX design, engineering, finance, marketing, and data analytics.
