At Onfido, we’re opening up online access on a global scale. Whether it’s sharing a car or opening a bank account, many of our everyday services are moving online. That means millions of everyday interactions now happen digitally – without people ever meeting face-to-face. Our mission is to help more people access those services by building trust between businesses and their users.

We’ve pioneered using deep learning to verify identity and reduce fraud, but we’re just getting started! Our goal is to apply cutting-edge research to build powerful, simple products that drive trust, inclusion and safety online.

At Onfido, we deeply value trust and ownership. Our smart, friendly and ambitious engineers, researchers, product managers and designers work together closely to solve a challenging problem - identity in an online world - and build products that are polished and impactful. We take pride in software we ship and hold ourselves to high standards in an industry where privacy, security and reliability are crucial.
