McLean, Va. – NOVEMBER 17, 2020 — ID.me, a federally certified identity provider, announced today that the company will be hiring over 1,000 new employees in Northern Virginia before the end of 2021 to fuel its continued hyper-growth. The company has hired over 300 new employees since the start of 2020 and opened up two new office locations in Tysons Corner, Virginia. Since the onset of the pandemic, ID.me has experienced explosive growth as consumers have shifted the majority of their shopping, banking, healthcare and government interactions online due to social distancing protocols.
ID.me will be hiring across the following departments:
- Customer Support – Member Support Representatives and Community Managers to help consumers to verify their legal identity, occupation, and group affiliation via video conference, social media, chat, and other channels.
- Sales and Marketing – Account Executives, Sales Development Representatives, Customer Success Managers, and Marketing Managers to target accounts in the health care, retail, consumer products, and government sectors.
To accommodate a larger workforce, ID.me has opened two new office locations in the Tysons Corner, Virginia, technology hub during 2020. The newly renovated offices are currently closed to all but essential workers, but upon resumption of normal operations, will offer perks such as a fully-stocked kitchen, lounge areas and a game room. All ID.me employees are able to participate in the company’s stock option plan and enjoy a generous benefits program that includes sponsored medical, dental and vision plans. Employees can take unlimited paid time off (PTO) and new parents enjoy three months of leave.
