An Insider's view of OneSpan

What's something quirky about your company?

My co-workers are not just those sitting next to me. I collaborate with people from around the world on a daily basis.


Website Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Some days, even before 9 a.m., I’ll speak to a product manager in France, a sales rep in Turkey, a marketing colleague in Montreal, and a business solutions manager in Belgium. I’ve never had the pleasure of working with such a wide variety of people and cultures. It makes OneSpan truly unique in my career.


Product Marketing Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Collaboration is key. Cross-departmental meetings are designed to help us align on challenges. We all unite to overcome any difficulties, where it feels like I’m helping them as much as they are helping me. Working together is one of OneSpan’s biggest values. Not only does the company preach teamwork, but it really values it.

We will transition from software-based offering to a services offering, this will allow our customers to consume ID verification and authentication in simple and cost-effective way. Our ability to keep up and excel in the delivery of security-as-a-service will require a concerted effort by the company and its people to be increasingly agile.
