The exciting news of our expansion continues!! As we all know, great people love to find ways to creatively disrupt markets and ultimately create customer business impact. That’s why great companies are built by great people. We are rolling off of the recent announcement that Bryta Schulz has joined as our new Vice President of Marketing, and now even more creative disruption is heading our way. Today, I proudly announce Jared Worley as our new Vice President of Strategic Alliances.


As the creators and pioneers of the Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) industry, we continue to evolve through partner ecosystem innovation and collaboration, something Jared is well positioned to help us with as we experience unprecedented growth.

As Vice President of Alliances at Janrain, Jared will be responsible for strategy and expansion of the global partner ecosystem. He brings more than 10 years of industry experience, driving growth and creating value for global organizations through alliances. Prior to Janrain, Worley championed and managed international business development at Gigya before going on to develop and lead strategic alliances. He also served as Chief Commercial Officer for Smartify, Inc. and is a long-time entrepreneur and active advisor to start-ups and the venture capital industry.

When Jared and I were comparing notes on industry trends, it was clear that he understood the digital identity market from its infancy. I recall Jared saying, “With growth comes responsibility. Janrain is like the dessert for marketers and a full serving of vegetables for IT.” He further explained that the “dessert” for marketers has to do with significantly improving customer experience, while the “vegetables” has to do with safety, security and compliance.

With both industry background and incredible strategic experience, Jared is the ideal executive to drive growth and increase customer value by expanding our partner ecosystem. Welcome to the Janrain family Jared!!
