    Founded in 2012, Onfido is one of London’s fastest growing tech companies. A true market disruptor, our technology is revolutionising the employment screening industry. By doing smart things with data and building the tech infrastructure to make our product genuinely scalable, we’re able to operate in fast-growing spaces that are closed to our competitors. Our vision is simple: Onfido will be the trust engine that powers the P2P market.

    Because we’re still a small team, we offer equity to everybody who joins – together with the opportunity to have real input into the direction of the business.


    Unashamedly ambitious, Onfido is a team of bold and talented software engineers and start-up professionals.

    We use agile methodology and a quick release cycle to deliver solutions to a fast-moving product. All of our developers share a passion for writing quality code and working with new technologies. Our next challenge is to scale and evolve our product without sacrificing reliability. And we are building a team to make our infrastructure efficient, elegant and (fingers crossed!) indestructible!

    At Onfido, we also foster a community of learning. We host regular presentations to discuss new technologies and practices, and attend meet-ups and community events as often as possible. We also put individuals at the heart of our planning process. Each engineer sets his or her own goals and drives his or her own growth within the company.
