Lithuanian identity verification experts iDenfy have announced a partnership with freelancer hiring platform JobHireHub with the aim of making it easier and safer for the latter’s clients to remotely authenticate the identity of freelancers they wish to hire.
Through the new partnership, JobHireHub will use iDenfy’s primarily facial recognition-based remote identity verification technology to ensure freelancers on their platform are who they say they are, making it easier for them to be contracted by businesses looking for their services.
The JobHireHub platform’s mission is to make it easier for businesses to connect with freelance talent, with a focus on charging low fees to both the company looking to hire, and the individual searching for a contract.
“JobHireHub is on a mission to create the ultimate project planning and hiring platform for remote work,” said Kenley Lamaute, Founder of JobHireHub. “We value iDenfy’s partnership in helping us deliver a cost effective and easy-to-use tool that helps our clients build their project teams.”
iDenfy’s technology compares a user’s picture on their official ID to a selfie, matching the biometric information contained within both to authenticate their identity.
“It seems only natural that JobHireHub chose us as their partners and we are very glad to welcome them aboard,” said Domantas Ciulde, CEO of iDenfy. “Both it and iDenfy share a vision of user-friendly customer-first experience. I can predict a solid, long-term partnership,” he added.
This is the latest announcement in what has been a busy time for iDenfy, after recently announcing that it’s platform now supports NFC capabilities, allowing it to read and extract biometric data from NFC-enabled smartphones meaning it can now support all identity documents adhering to the global ICAO 9303 standard.
