Protecting Your Digital Heritage with Emidio do Sacramento

Emidio do Sacramento
It’s hard to be innovative. New ideas are scary, especially when it comes to finding and committing the resources necessary to turn dream into reality. Our guest today tells us how tapping into the global remote talent pool was the path to build his dream team and ultimately create products that big businesses said were impossible.

Welcome to the DistantJob Podcast, a show where we interview the most successful remote leaders, picking their brains on how to build and lead remote teams who win.

Emídio do Sacramento has one of the most amazing origin stories of any podcast guest, ever, so we’ll leave it to you to find out where he came from – he is currently the founder and CEO of Zebiometrics (, and is working hard to  establish a new paradigm for online security and virtual identity.

In this episode, we talk about why Emídio believes remote work was a crucial factor in building the team to bring his vision to life, and why it’s great to be able to tap into different cultures when doing so. We also talk about what the future of online identity looks like and what are some technological advances that you can tap into to be sure that the person on the other side of the screen really is the person you hired. 

Emidio also points out that as good as video conversation is, it’s possible to build a world-class product just by text chat, and he tells the story of how that happened for him.
