We’re helping our customer navigate Identity and Access Management (IAM) challenges, specifically around setting up hybrid Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) solutions that scale, provide seamless customer experience, and offer less constrains than traditional B2B IAM solutions. 
You will work closely with both the business and technical teams to better understand the customer use cases, business constraints and other variables. Your understanding of IAM will help you evaluate the as-is state and current constraints, explore products or changes that could improve the customer experience, and adopt best practices from B2B IAM and CIAM to develop a hybrid solution that meets customer needs.
