Yes, the wide cephalothorax and the way the legs are bent, like the spider is ready to jump, are good ways to recognize a jumping spider. I think it is a species in genus Cosmophasis. They are pretty spiders with iridescent markings, often teal-colored. I didn’t look at the genus+location+photos for the best match for species yet.
