Company

Fama is cloud-based software that utilizes a person’s publicly available, online identity to help businesses hire the right people, with a major focus on increasing trust and safety.

A combination of artificial intelligence, machine learning and human-based quality assurance automatically highlights red flags…showing businesses the tweets, photos and posts that offer a revealing perspective into patterns of historical behavior.

Flags may reference bigotry, illegal drugs, discriminatory behavior—or any ‘custom attributes’ a business or institution is interested in surfacing.
