Three Reasons Why I Joined Incode
Incode is a dynamic digital identity company with the vision to power a world of trust. Since I joined in December, 2021, we’ve been rapidly expanding. Today, we have people in 15 markets around the world, including the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Serbia, Russia, the UK, Spain, Dubai, Uruguay and Singapore.
As a leading tech start-up, we’re always looking for extraordinary talent to join us in solving next-generation identity verification challenges. We also know everyone chooses to join organizations for different reasons. As the Global People Director at Incode, I wanted to share some of the reasons why I became an Incoder and give you some insight into our culture.
- Our people and culture
The top reason I joined Incode was its people; Almost three years ago, I randomly met some Incoders at a restaurant. What caught my attention was how diverse the team was, how bright and funny they were, but above all, the passionate way they talked about the company and their jobs. At Incode, we place a strong emphasis on culture and diversity. As an identity company, it is particularly important we are representative of the customers and end-users we serve. By focusing on diversity and inclusion from within the company, we can better serve our user base, ensuring our products and services are inclusive of everyone.
Our purpose as a Leadership team at Incode, is to build an environment where our people can be extremely successful, can be themselves, and can use their strengths to make the most amazing creations. To that end, we strive to attract the best talent regardless of age, gender, background, race, experiences, or beliefs. That approach has propelled us to where we are today.
Anyone who joins can make a tremendous impact from day one. We strive to foster a culture where everyone has the opportunity to share their ideas and perspectives and we seek to empower people to take risks, make decisions and be autonomous.
- Solving modern issues that matter
Another reason I joined Incode was the type of problems we are solving; It fascinated me knowing that our technology is being used from helping to enable financial inclusion, to helping protect people’s physical safety, to being used for healthcare institutions. Identity is everywhere and applies to everyone. We’re solving real-life challenges that affect all organizations and individuals and that brings us a bigger purpose to work every day.
At Incode, we want to help people get their identity verified as fast as possible, with as little friction as possible. We want them to be able to access the services they need without having to worry about privacy issues.
This relevance to everyday challenges we all face is what attracted me to Incode. To join Incode is to be able to have a real impact on society and the way people live.
- Ownership and investment opportunities
Let’s not beat around the bush – financial incentives are important when choosing a career opportunity. This was one of my reasons for joining Incode, too.
Incode offers all full-time employees a very competitive stock option plan. With this benefit, employees can invest in the company at a preferential rate as well as gain investment payoffs. Being a stock owner makes employees part owners, allowing you to take real ownership of the company’s success. The best part of this is that Incode has already allowed its employees to sell their shares.
Are we the right fit for you?
Start-ups are exciting, challenging and offer many opportunities. As an Incoder, you’ll wear many different hats, expand your experience and global networking tremendously all while learning and having fun with a really cool team. Here are some other characteristics that may mean we’d work well together.
If you’re motivated to create new things and develop new approaches, we might be a good fit for you. Here, you’re able to try out new things without worrying about rigid structures blocking progress. We want our business to run fast, so we empower our people with an eye to remove bottlenecks and focus on results. We operate in a fast-paced environment, driven by ideas, vision and creative energy.
If you like the idea of change, we might be a good fit. We don’t know everything, and we don’t have all the answers, but we try things out and if they don’t work, we try a different way. This is how we all learn and find the answers to what we don’t know.
If you like a dynamic and creative environment, Incode might be for you. Digital identity is a relatively new field and the regulations surrounding it are still evolving. We’re looking to transform existing business models and add unique value. Here, you’ll be able to achieve your career potential and impact society by solving new challenges in a frontier landscape.
