  • At Signifyd we’re creating a new market. We’re constantly improving and expanding the technology that has changed what fraud protection for e-commerce looks like.

    - Who believes challenges are best overcome by thinking differently.

    - Who knows his or her role, but isn’t confined by it.

    - Who’s greatest satisfaction comes from helping customers succeed and achieve their dreams.
