About Berbix

We’re a world-class team of product builders who are passionate about fighting fraud.

“We founded Berbix to tackle a problem we experienced as product and engineer leads for the Trust & Safety team at Airbnb- reliably checking photo IDs online in a fully-automatic yet conversion-friendly way. So we founded Berbix and set out to confidently answer the question: Are you who you say you are? Since then, we’ve gathered a thoughtful and fast moving team who are passionate about making the internet a safer place for everyone. Come join us in building ID verification for the future.”
