PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jumio, the leading AI-powered trusted identity as a service provider, today announced it has been named one of the best places to work in the 2019 BIG Best Places to Work Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group.
The award program identifies organizations dedicated to improving performance by challenging employees in fun and engaging work environments. Jumio was selected for helping employees accelerate their careers, knowledge and performance. Jumio earned this honor through an online survey where employees ranked their overall job satisfaction and company performance.
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. Business Intelligence Group sought to identify companies that are actively working to improve their own performance through efforts to challenge employees in environments that make work fun and engaging.
“This honor is a testament to our company culture built on accountability, integrity, diversity, empowerment and leading innovation,” said Stephen Stuut, CEO of Jumio. “Our continued success will depend on having an engaged and motivated team united in making the internet a safer place. Through our collective efforts, we're helping to establish and authenticate an online user's digital identity, which has become vital in the era of the data breach.”
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.
