At Notarize, we’re pulling the future closer, bringing industries like real estate, automotive, and financial services into the digital age. We’re the first company to complete a legal online notarization, online mortgage closing, online will, online auto sale, and countless other critical transactions. We’re proud to play an integral role for our customers -- from individuals to major enterprises -- in making life’s most important moments better.  Our business has grown exponentially (over 600%!) in the past year.

Come join us! Notarize is proud to be a fully-distributed, remote-first team. Employees can work from anywhere in the United States -- all 50 states and D.C too.
