Before this solution, customers had to rely on 5+ separate solutions, a substantial team, and engineering resources. Now, businesses can set up their platform within 15 minutes, promptly identifying genuine users. Companies leverage this platform to:

  • Save Money & Time: Prevent costly fake accounts and fraud, consolidate vendors, and enhance team efficiency.
  • Grow Sustainably: Improve experiences for real users, prevent account sharing and abuse, and identify the most effective promotion and ad channels.
  • Make Better Decisions: Gain insights into real user metrics.

The company is assembling a lean team of high-performers, with founders hailing from renowned companies such as Bain, Facebook, and Capital One. Their expertise in fraud extends from companies like TransUnion, Neustar, and various Fintechs.

  3. First Principles Curiosity: You’ll analyze problems with the curiosity of a beginner’s mind: challenging assumptions, rethinking the current way, and quickly testing new hypotheses.
