Our MBA Product Management summer internship will immerse you in Okta’s Workforce Identity Cloud product development process.

We will be hiring two Product Management Interns for Summer 2024.
JOB DUTIES + RESPONSIBILITIES
Our two internship positions are placed in our Identity Management and Platform teams - Identity Management increases customer agility by innovating on user lifecycle and governance across the enterprise while maintaining least privilege; and Product Platform is our universally integrated identity platform that provides centralized visibility, control, extensibility and automation for all identity use cases.
Each internship includes the following responsibilities:
- Understanding core business problems and requirements from existing customers, prospective customers, and other strategic initiatives
- Partnering with Engineering, Research and Design, and other internal groups to identify, prioritize, define, and document user stories and use cases to guide product development
- Tracking industry trends and competition alongside internal data to inform product decisions and strategy
Our goal for the MBA Product Management summer internship is to give our interns a real sense of what Product Management is like at Okta.
