Onfido is hiring an

Account Executive (English & German Speaking)

London, United Kingdom

Onfido’s purpose is to make it easier for people to prove their legal identities online. We verify your government ID and compare it against your facial biometrics, so you can easily access the services you want and need.

Onfido was founded in 2012. Our first aim was to make Onfido the best place to work – a place where our team looks forward to coming every day. Our second was to use technology to make a difference on a global scale.

Traditionally, to make a trusted transaction with someone, you’d need to meet them face-to-face. But with the advent of the internet, we can now transact online with anyone, anywhere in the world. Face-to-face transactions aren’t scalable, but the anonymity of the digital age isn’t secure. Onfido exists to solve that tension.

We're now moving to a new age in which your legal identity is the new currency. It's the key to unlocking access to all the services that you want and need- from banking and car sharing right through to healthcare and voting. And Onfido sits at the heart of that. By using machine learning, we don't need to compromise on scale or security - we can verify the world's identities whilst providing the security of a local village.
