Role Description

Who We Are and What We Do

We’re a team of engineers, technologist and machine learning experts, working together to build products people love using the latest advancements in computer vision. We invent, design and productize new technology, in order to accelerate the adoption of the latest research. Simply put, we love building stuff while avoiding the trap of being a research lab.

We build Entry - a biometric identity provider that enables users to seamlessly and securely authenticate in their favorite web apps, without compromising privacy, security and user experience.

Users can sign in to their favorite web apps by face using a browser and a web camera on laptops and desktop devices. Entry helps teams prevent data breaches, stolen credentials and phishing attacks by using biometric authentication, as a superior alternative to legacy MFA solutions.
