PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jumio, the leading AI-powered trusted identity as a service provider, today announced it has been recognized as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology by SourceMedia for the second consecutive year.
The annual awards program honors the best employers in the financial technology industry, which were determined by a two-part survey process. The first part evaluated workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, and the second part measured employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the winning companies and final ranking. This year, Jumio ranked ninth out of 50 companies on the list, who all offer unconventional perks and recreational time in the workplace.
Jumio’s mission is to make the internet a safer place by protecting the online ecosystem against fraud and bad actors. The company’s innovations, centered around augmented intelligence, machine learning, 3D liveness detection and the user experience, have enabled Jumio to become the global leader in online identity verification and user authentication, as it has verified more than 160 million identities to date by over 200 countries.
“Thanks to persistent data breaches, the dark web and evaporating online trust, the financial technology industry is thriving, and we are honored to be recognized as one of the best places to work in an industry with so many innovative companies,” said Stephen Stuut, CEO of Jumio. “Through our dedicated team, we are making a substantial impact on helping financial institutions fight fraud, while also creating a great place to work.”
2018 was a momentous year for Jumio, as the company grew its customer count by 60 percent and sales 70 percent year-over-year. Jumio recently launched Jumio Authentication, the first to market video-selfie authentication tool enabling users to verify themselves during high-risk transactions and unlock everything from online accounts to rental cars on any device. This continued momentum speaks to the significant market opportunity and demand for biometric-based identity verification and Jumio’s ability to help enterprise clients reliably and quickly verify a digital user is who they claim to be.
“Every one of the companies named to SourceMedia’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology list demonstrated a culture focused on supporting and engaging employees,” said Richard Melville, Group Editorial Director at SourceMedia.
