You can find them at Auth0.com. As of now I’m serving on their Advisory Board. It’s not an actual job but yes, I do have a financial interest in their success, so you should take that into account when you read what I write.
Why Auth0? · Well, having spent a couple of years advocating back and forth between Google and the developer community around Identity issues, I’ve become keenly aware of how under-served that community is. Modern identity tech is getting to the point where it’s irresponsible not to be deploying it; but the devil is in the details, and boy are there ever a lot of details. So in principle I approve of the soup-to-nuts end-to-end solve-the-whole problem package Auth0 is trying to deliver.
On top of that, I like Auth0’s unapologetically developer-focused approach and transparent pricing structure; with every decade that passes, my loathing for traditional Enterprise-software sales culture deepens.
Also, specifically, I have another project that I left unfinished at Google but I plan to pick up again, and what it needs to be complete, mostly, is user accounts and sign-in and so on. The Auth0 guys were explaining their system to me and I was thinking “This thing would snap right onto that thing,and in a very pleasing way.” Over the years I’ve found my software tastes to be very mainstream, so I’d call that a positive indicator.
On a lighter note, Auth0 is headquartered in Seattle but has a strong Argentinean connection; and that has to be a good thing.
