Archive Job Description

Our story began when our founding team launched a mobile cryptocurrency exchange product in late 2017 called Coinance. After three months of operations and acquiring over 10,000 users, Coinance was pulled from the AppStore for not properly identifying its users in compliance with KYC (know your customer) regulations. During the search for a solution, the founders became convinced that there was a large opportunity to build an identity verification tool that was easy for engineering teams to integrate and empowered end-users with privacy and security.

Fast-forward two years and the team has raised $8m in venture financing with several hundred customers building with our identity system. In order to prepare the growth and marketing organization for our next phase of growth (after growing 14x in the last year), we realized it was time to bring in a great leader. Currently, the growth department consists of several pillars with FTEs, agencies, and budget to support each. These pillars include content creation, public relations, performance marketing, referrals, and alliances.
