Our story:

Our story began when our founding team launched a mobile cryptocurrency exchange product in late 2017 called Coinance. After three months of operations and acquiring over 10,000 users, Coinance was pulled from the AppStore for not properly identifying its users in compliance with KYC (know your customer) regulations. During the search for a solution, the founders became convinced that there was a large opportunity to build an identity verification tool that was easy for engineering teams to integrate and empowered end-users with privacy and security. Fast-forward three years, and the team has raised $17.5m in venture financing with several hundred customers building with our identity system. We grew our revenue 8x last year and are now looking to expand our teams with ambitious and good humans!

What we do:

Our goal is to empower the world with a digital identity system that puts you, the individual, first. We give developers a set of tools to integrate into their facial recognition, liveness detection, ID authenticity checks, and ID information extraction, while also baking in privacy protections that allow individual users to control their own identity data – creating a more privacy-centric future.

We are a remote-first company with offices in New York City & Berlin!
