Okta Snr SDE offer evaluation

VMware ETyf25
Nov 7 12 Comments

I received an offer from Okta for a Snr SDE role 180k base 360k in RSUs and 5 pc bonus. TC 279k. No 401k match. ESPP 15pc discount pretty standard in the industry. Some good perks such as lunch 3 times a week and a downtown San Francisco location

I am looking to transition to a role that is not pure private cloud play which is my current role at VMware. I like my current team at vmware but it has been a little bit of the same for the last couple of years.

How is Okta tech stack overall ? I couldn’t quite figure out whether the company has a strong engg influence, any thoughts on that.
Are there any people / politics kind of issues that you have come across in the company.

As you can see the TC from Okta is luke warm compared to other names in the bay area. I’m primarily looking for exciting work and learning opportunities would you continue looking and try out the FAANGs ?

Thanks for your responses.

    ESPP is better than other companies, 15% are on min(start,end) of offer period. Last period buy was under 50 bucks while stock that day was over 100 since it went up quite a bit in the period. More than 100% gain instantly...
