We're an identity company. Identity matters because we’re all unique. We were raised in countries, cities, and towns. We have unique backgrounds. We’ve faced specific challenges. And we've learned a lot along the way. At Okta we believe those experiences equip us to look at the world with our own perspective. Our product protects your right to be you, and we want every single one of our employees to feel a sense of belonging, acceptance, and comfort to express their ideas, because ultimately our differences are what makes us great.

Okta’s EMEA Sales Enablement team’s mission is to empower Okta sellers with the right stories, knowledge and go-to-market skills that will drive valuable engagement with prospective buyers. Taking into consideration multiple solutions, industries, regions and sales segments, there’s a huge opportunity to deliver effective enablement programs to the EMEA sales teams.
