About the company:
ForgeRock® rocks when others are rolling. We aren't your typical high-tech company and aren't looking for typical people. We look for real people. Whoever you are. Whatever you are. While you play well with others you aren't afraid to be you and let others be themselves. Someone has called you wicked smart before, but you would never refer to yourself that way.

ForgeRock pioneered open source identity and access management, went on to invent identity relationship management for customer identities, and is now busy playing with the identity of things. Yes, we're growing fast, but we remain true to our start up culture. We're decidedly creative, we're always learning, no one hesitates to ask questions, and we're on a never-ending search for new ideas.

Our customers are some of the biggest companies, organizations, and even countries in the world. On any given day, it's likely that the ForgeRock Identity Platform helped keep your data safe, gave you access to stuff, and supported trusted relationships between you, companies and the devices you were using.
