About Inscribe
At Inscribe, we’re on a mission to create a fair and efficient financial services ecosystem — one that grants more access to eligible customers while keeping fraudsters out and doing so quickly and efficiently. Companies that use Inscribe are able to grow faster, reduce fraud, and serve more customers with a better experience.  

It’s a lofty goal, but one that our team of kind, funny, and wildly talented people from across the globe are committed to. We put people first by fostering an environment that is inclusive of diverse backgrounds, encouraging a sustainable work-life balance, and ensuring our team members have the resources and support to grow. Plus, our work anniversary gifts can’t be beat: poems, portraits, and (yes, it’s true) custom crossword puzzles created in your honor. 

What about our company values? We’re glad you asked: 
- We’re builders: We create things that move society forward and let our work speak for itself.
- We’re here to win: We know where we’re going, and nothing will stop us from getting there.
- We’re kind: We’re human. We crave to understand others and to be understood.
- We have fun: We believe joy unlocks curiosity, creativity, and connection.

Backed by top Silicon Valley investors like Y Combinator, Foundry Group, Crosslink Capital, and Uncork Capital, Inscribe is based in San Francisco with a European office in Dublin, Ireland.
