McLean-based ID.me to add 1,000 workers in NoVa
Identity verification company plans to complete hires by end of 2021
McLean-based identity verification company ID.me announced Tuesday it plans to hire 1,000 new employees in Northern Virginia before the end of 2021.
ID.me, which provides identity verification services used for military discounts and group buying services online, has hired more than 300 employees thus far this year, attributable to its “explosive growth.”
“Since the onset of the pandemic, ID.me has experienced explosive growth as consumers have shifted the majority of their shopping, banking, health care and government interactions online due to social distancing protocols,” according to an ID.me statement.
The company has also opened two additional office locations in Tysons, which are currently closed to all but essential workers. ID.me provides services to more than 28 million users and 450 organizations.
“We have an audacious mission,” ID.me CEO and founder Blake Hall said in a statement. “We aim to fix the identity layer of the internet with a trusted and portable login that customers can use to access everything from government benefits to e-commerce sites. Like Special Forces, we are executing against the most difficult missions where others have failed.”
The company is hiring in its engineering, customer support and sales and marketing departments.
“If you are looking for a new opportunity that will challenge you to build new skills and offer opportunities for career growth, consider a role at ID.me,” Hall said in a statement. “We are looking for candidates that are not only passionate about technology but are motivated to help make billions of people’s lives better with more trust and convenience online.”
