ForMotiv Background


It has probably never occurred to you, but as the Internet shifted virtually every business model online, one key element of human behavior was lost - reading someone's body language.

Using modern technologies for data science, AI and ML, we analyze behavioral cues collected while users engage with web applications to classify and predict end-user intent. ForMotiv is helping leading financial service companies to improve online experiences as well as reduce risk and fraud. ForMotiv is a real-time behavioral intelligence tool that helps companies fill in the missing link when it comes to their customer data - their digital body language.

The 5 Cultural Characteristics we look for:

  • Empathy: You care how others feel around you, and you have the capacity to understand their points of view.
  • Teachable: You know your strengths and weaknesses and you aren’t afraid to ask for help; everybody you work with is smarter than you about something; willing to learn from everybody and willing to accept that you can always improve the way YOU work.
