Spain ranks FacePhi as a strategic company for the country

FacePhi will try to attract more international talent after being classified as a “strategic” company by the Spanish government. The designation is courtesy of the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and will allow FacePhi to issue special visas to highly qualified professionals for the next two years.

New recruits who receive the special visas will be immediately allowed to settle in Spain. FacePhi hopes this advantage will make it easier to attract top talent from around the world and build on its explosive growth over the past two years. The company has doubled in size to 60 employees in 2020 and has grown to over 150 employees as the end of 2021 approaches. FacePhi is based in Alicante, Spain, and currently offers a hybrid work model that allows people to work from the office or from your home.

The International Trade and Investments Branch ranked FacePhi as a strategic company for its contributions to the fintech sector, and for its digital integration and facial recognition technology in particular. Seventy percent of the company’s employees benefit from the hybrid work model, and 70 percent of those employees are engineers and specialists who fill various technical roles within the company.

“This recognition is important for us, both for the opportunity it gives us to continue integrating highly qualified professionals into our project, and for the support it represents for technological innovation promoted by SMEs” , said Javier Mira, CEO of FacePhi. “Identity verification technology is increasingly becoming part of our daily lives and will play a fundamental role in the digital transformation of businesses and institutions. “

FacePhi staff recently received a Telecommunications Talent Award from the Official College and the Association of Telecom Graduates and Technical Engineers of Valencia. The Spanish Chamber of Commerce also awarded the company its National SME Award for 2020.
