We're a company that leverages blockchain to provide decentralized authentication. Our mission is to empower developers and users to own their auth, #OwnYourAuth. By owning your auth, you own the identities along with data generated with your identities. Fortmatic offers an SDK that enables developers to build and own their authentication experience, without being locked into any centralized identity provider and without compromising end-user privacy and security - a flexible and future-proof solution that will be able to support companies’ auth needs from start to scale.

Engineering team and processes

At Fortmatic, we do Quarterly and establish OKRs for each quarter to guide the company direction. Our engineering team operates on a one-week Sprint Planning cycle. Each cycle begins with a meeting to discuss what tasks/features we should do and what the estimates are. We split our team into Frontend, Platform and Product. We are a product-driven team, and our engineering teams work closely with product. We've adopted the mindset to move fast and break things. And we embrace agile development. Automated testing is our Swiss army knife and code review is a must. We are consistently improving our processes and procedures to further support our fast-iterating development cycle. We push to production numerous times a day. We hold the same standard to our newhires as we expect them to push to production on their first day.
