The company

About Veriff in Tallinn, Estonia

There's a new Veriff in town with a secure and hassle-free online identity verification solution that allows you to verify your identity without leaving your seat. Our innovative solution revolutionizes the way we use financial and other services.
Veriff is the new worldwide standard for building up trust on the internet. Whether it’s
someone you’re offering your home on Airbnb, the driver you’re hailing on Uber, or whom you’re buying from on Amazon, simply by using their passport and a camera we’ll verify the identity of those people in seconds. So instead of having to visit a bank to open an account, Veriff lets you do so from your own home, or even on the go. It is like a plug-in which online businesses can add to their website or mobile application. If needed, Veriff activates the camera and asks the person to show their identity document and capture a portrait photo. In the background Veriff analyses the authenticity of the document and if the person is the owner of the document. We record a video, analyze security holograms, facial biometrics and hundreds of other parameters to guarantee the identity and trustworthiness.
Our team consists of people who have built up Skype, TransferWise, Starship Technologies and Pipedrive. We're backed by investors of Instacart, Stripe, Airbnb, Slack, Dropbox, Snapchat and many other well-known companies.

Life at Veriff

We have always and will always take care of our staff, providing everybody with the perks that make it worthwhile to stay with Veriff. You’re exposed to the amazing people, great problem-solvers, and a culture that allows you to develop your career.
It goes without saying that everything we offer is in order to help you keep your focus on building the next worldwide identity gateway: a motivating salary, additional holidays, team events, compensation of sport expenses, and stock options.
