Join the Unum ID team.

We’re hiring!

Flush with new funding, Unum ID is growing quickly. We're currently looking to fill the following roles:

People are by far our biggest priority. A company is only as good as the people that make it up. Our goal is to make the hiring process as easy, fair, and transparent as possible. We will never sacrifice thoroughness for speed, but we promise to never waste your time with arduous application processes, repetitive interviews, or otherwise. We adapt the process specifically to each candidate, but we typically do the following:

  1. Resume screen: We look for a basic fit between your skills and company needs. We're quite selective even at this stage so that we can accelerate good candidates quickly through the process, so make sure to submit a solid resume.
  2. Introductory interview: This interview is brief — up to 30 minutes long. It helps us get to know you better, and it should help you get to know us.
  3. Pair programming interview (if applicable): Conducted by our senior software engineer Jacob, this is designed to see how you work collaboratively and think through technical problems. It should also help you get a sense for what working with us will be like.
  4. Technical interview (if applicable): Conducted by our lead backend engineer Ray, this will assess your high level technical knowledge and experience.
  5. Final interview: Conducted by both of our co-founders Aidan and Liam, this interview is about getting to know you in a more general sense and evaluating your overall fit with the team and vision. Our goal is also to answer any and all remaining questions you have, so that you feel fully acquainted with who we are and what we're trying to accomplish.
  6. Meet the team: As a final step, you'll meet with the full team so we can all get to know each other better. Because we're still a small team, all of our hires are made by unanimous vote.

Given the current COVID-19 situation, all interviews will be conducted remotely. This process can take as little as a week for qualified candidates. If you're a perfect fit, we'll waste no time in making an offer.

About Unum ID

We're an intense, fun-loving team doing everything in our power to build the ID card network. When you join us, we'll ask for the best work of your life, and we'll give you ours in return. Together, we'll have the chance to build a fundamental layer of technology for the future Internet, and we'll have a blast doing it.

Our company name comes from the unofficial U.S. motto e pluribus unum, which means "out of many, one". (Hence Unum ID referring to each person's one identity, which emerges out of many parts.) Fittingly, our official mascot has long been George Washington, who warned about foreign interference over 220 years ago in his Farewell Address. Foreign (and domestic) interference has become a problem of verified identity today, as it's extremely difficult to prevent bots and fraudulent actors. George is a Twitter influencer (@NumberOnePOTUS) and LinkedIn super-connector, using his fake accounts to promote... the need to stop fake accounts.

We've also made funny presidential chatbots like YoBama!, Trump's Ear, and Yo Biden! to let people send verified messages in an amusing way. And we've had taste test competitions in the office to see who can best distinguish San Pellegrino from Perrier. We received free office space from Samsung (one of our investors), which came with an enormous selection of office snacks, including bottles from these two famous bubbly water brands. After a careful, competitive experiment, we determined that even the best of us are only barely able to detect any difference!

In the midst of all this entertainment, we're making waves as a company. Check out our TechCrunch Disrupt interview below. And join us! We'd love to have you on the team.
