Here’s our interview with Mike Kim, Trulioo’s Strategic Accounts Manager:

Where did you start your career and how did you gain the experience needed to run the tech side of your company?

Kim: I started my career as a Java developer at HSBC where I was responsible for optimizing the user experience for their Payments and Global Entitlements customers. In my next career move, I was challenged with growing a valid customer base for an eCommerce business while setting up a rigorous fraud prevention system that captured and protected every cardholder. Before joining the Trulioo team, I spent a few years managing strategic partnerships at a global payments company and advised on payment fraud, security, efficiency and PCI compliance for nonprofits processing credit card and ACH payments worldwide.

From a technologist’s perspective, what’s unique and game-changing about your technology?

Kim: GlobalGateway provides the widest coverage of identity verification in the world through a single API integration. Developers can access real-time electronic identity verification, identity document verification, and AML watchlist screening all through one platform. We will be announcing a new business solution on-stage at FinDEVr, so you definitely won’t want to miss our presentation.

Developers and compliance professionals can leverage our global identity verification platform to gain secure access to over 4 billion identities in over 60 countries to meet AML/KYC compliance requirements during customer on-boarding.

Tell us about your favorite implementation of your solution/technology.

Kim: We power some of the top payment and financial services providers in the world with electronic identity verification to help them reduce compliance risk and streamline their client on-boarding experience. My favorite implementation of Trulioo’s GlobalGateway API is by a developer-focused global payments platform that processes billions of dollars a year for thousands of online businesses, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. By integrating Trulioo’s Normalized API, we have helped them expand into 33 countries in six continents.
