Forge has several meanings. As a noun, it’s used by craftsmen to create metal that is exceedingly strong. As a verb, it “forms or makes, especially by concentrated effort,” whether it be metal or friendship built on mutual trust. And it’s also the name of the pub in London where our founders turned their thirst into a rock-solid partnership.
Rock represents both a lifetime passion for music amongst a surprising number of employees across the company, and a strong, solid Norwegian mountain – the site of Kjeragbolten, a 5 cubic meter or 176.57 cubic foot stone balancing between two rocks, a part of our logo and a metaphor for this company. BASE jumpers from all over the world come here to take a chance, jump off a cliff, have fun, and use all their skills for an epic landing.

I have been working at ForgeRock full-time (Less than a year)
The engineering atmosphere is great. Lots to learn, lots of flexibility. Mobbing, pairing, all things auth. Engineers are given a lot of freedom and they rely in our criteria. It is easy to chose what one wants to do and there is a lot of mobility. There is a lot of collaboration and open discussion, and everyone has an opinion. Sharing and learning from each other is always a first.
There are lots of social activities too, and everyone is very approachable and welcoming. Conflicts are dealt with straightaway in general, and it is easy to know what is going on all the time - management shares what is going on all the time
If you like working in isolation, or have a hard time taking responsibilities quickly (nothing wrong with either of them!), then this may not be your place. Constant pairing, conflict solving, openly discussing everything and being proactive is always expected from a forgerocker.
Advice to Management
Keep building an awesome team you can rely on, the way it is being done since day zero, and we'll keep rocking for a long time.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ForgeRock.
my interviews was over the phone. First interview was with a recruiter. He asked about the typical questions that is usually asked during initial phone calls. Then with the hiring manager about a month later.
