Ory SDK & OpenAPI Maintainer

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.

In this role you will use your passion for open source to maintain Ory SDKs, with a focus on the OpenAPI Generator, as it provides SDKs that are integral to Ory’s identity management infrastructure. Since we provide SDKs for all common programming languages, being a polyglot is essential for this role.
