Daon is constantly looking for innovative and reliable ways in which to provide secure, convenient, and flexible identity management so people can trust that any information they put online is safe and protected. This company was founded to help provide that peace of mind by tapping into what is unique to everyone—human authentication through biometrics.
In order for Daon team members to be at the top of their game, they need to be in the know with the latest science and technology. And luckily, leadership at the company is more than happy to support professional development. “I just need to talk to my manager about any training needs that I have—I can just walk over to him. I’ve never heard no about it, and I’ve been able to get three or four different certifications in the QA world,” shares Manas Sharma, Quality Control Team Lead. “They’re very cooperative when it comes to your training or education needs.”
But don’t be mistaken—though Daon employees work very hard, there is still a strong emphasis on work-life balance. “The most key feature that is attractive is the flexibility. There are various different starting and end times people have the option of using—whatever works for the individual and the department. There’s a real focus on work-life balance,” says Lynne Kemp, VP of HR.
On top of the ability to start and end the day whenever is best for them, staffers have other perks that help to balance out their hard work. Each location has multiple events each month, such as water-skiing, Super Bowl competitions, wine tasting, and office Jeopardy competitions (to name a few).
