SheerID Recognized As One of the Fastest-Growing Companies in North America on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ For Third Consecutive Year

Company experiences 387% growth over the last 3 years as digital marketers rely on SheerID to verify consumers for nearly 250 million exclusive offers worldwide

Portland, OR—Nov. 17, 2021— SheerID today announced it ranked 316 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America now in its 27th year. This is the third consecutive year in which SheerID has been named to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™.

SheerID has grown rapidly in 2021, both in new logo acquisition and expansion with existing customers, as digital marketers in hundreds of brands rely on SheerID to verify eligible consumers for gated, personalized offers. In addition to helping brands achieve 20:1 return on ad spend (ROAS), these programs replace third-party cookie marketing with zero-party information provided directly from the consumer that the SheerID platform then authoritatively verifies to redeem the reward.

2021 highlights include:

  • Expanded its product line to support 100s of consumer communities with exclusive rewards
  • Surpassed 235 million requests for exclusive offers worldwide 
  • Opened first European office and expanded product coverage to 13 more countries in Europe
  • Increased the average enterprise contract value by 280% 
  • Hired first Chief Customer Officer in Anjanette Hill Mendoza
  • Hired Chief Financial Officer John Ewert, a technology finance veteran
  • Grew employee base by 32%

“Our business has continued to grow rapidly over the last year, as brands continue to recognize and reward the heroes of the pandemic, including nurses, doctors, first responders, educators, and students,” stated Jake Weatherly, CEO. “Our clients are upending outdated surveillance marketing approaches based on third-party cookies and questionable, compiled data replacing it with exclusive rewards for specific communities. Consumers receive exclusive offers and the brand gets valuable, accurate zero-party data from the consumer. This forms the foundation for a long-term relationship based on trust and invited personalization.” 

Founded in 2011, SheerID works with more than 300 B2C brands in retail, telecommunications, streaming media, internet services, software, and hospitality, and has the ability to verify 2.5 billion consumers for personalized offers around the world. SheerID’s Verification Platform allows brands – such as Target, Amazon, Comcast, YouTube, HomeDepot, NASCAR and T-Mobile – to create gated, personalized offers and instantly verify a consumer’s eligibility with authoritative data in the brand’s existing customer experience. 

“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”
