Why 2013 will be ‘The Year of the SCUID’

I’m just now coming back to earth from the high I’ve been on since I came back from Vegas on Wednesday. And no, it has nothing to do with the usual things you’d associate with Sin City. I was in Vegas for our company’s bi-annual all-hands meeting. We’ve grown tremendously since I started at Identropy back in the summer of 2011, and there were a bunch of people I was meeting in person for the first time. And each person I met, each meeting we had, each conversation reinforced the same core feeling I captured in my initial blog post about joining Identropy – incredible people, incredible company, incredible times.

Nowhere was this captured more vividly than in our FedEx Day projects (for more on FedEx day, read this). The passion different teams brought to the table was amazing to behold, whether they were creating an ebook or a video about our core values, connecting our product, support portal and our internal issue tracking system together, or simply putting together a how-to guide on surviving an afternoon with Victor. You could really sense the talent, commitment and drive in the room.

And they’re a great group to hang out with too.

It’s been a great month. We officially launched SCUID Lifecycle earlier this month. We’ve accompanied that with a blitz of analyst and press briefings, and the coverage has been quite encouraging. Some have recognized the innovative approach we’re taking, while others have commented on how much of a game changer it can be in identity management. All of this means that 2013 is going to be a real roller coaster of a year. Expectations are high, none more so than what we expect of ourselves. And it’s going to be fun delivering on the promise of the SCUID Platform.

And if you want to join in the fun, check out our careers page. We have a number of openings, especially in the product team. But we’d love to hear from you even if you don’t see an immediate fit in the jobs posted, because we believe first and foremost in talent and the value of forging a partnership. If you want to work in an environment that is focused on GSD, where creativity, free-thinking and collaboration is encouraged in a judgment free zone, then drop us an email or reach out to any of the team on LinkedIn.
