Persona Identities

About Persona Identities

Persona is a leader in the identity space that helps businesses verify their users to fight fraud, stay compliant, and build trust. For example, Coursera uses Persona to ensure the right person is earning each degree, DoorDash verifies couriers and anyone ordering alcohol, and Lime verifies riders’ ages before allowing them to rent an electric scooter or bike.

What sets Persona apart is our flexibility. Every company’s identity needs differ depending on their industry, use cases, risk tolerance, and users, so we offer flexible building blocks businesses can mix and match to design their ideal identity experience, whether they want to ensure a selfie matches the portrait on a driver’s license, see if a user is on a sanctions list, or something else entirely.

Founded in 2018 and headquartered in San Francisco, Persona is backed by top VC firms, including Index Ventures, Coatue, and Founders Fund. We’re extremely proud of our team and the work we’ve collectively accomplished so far. We are headquartered in San Francisco but also have an office in downtown New York City.

Software Engineering Intern

January 2023 San Francisco, CA
“Very collaborative and welcoming culture. Felt like folks wanted me to succeed, from my direct mentors and managers, to my peers. I also felt very integrated and part of the team as an Engineer, not an intern. I felt this in the way I was expected to carry out my work and the kind of work I was assigned. All my projects were to improve our product directly and fulfill requests from important clients. Really enjoyed my time.”
