About Evident

Evident is revolutionizing the way personal data is shared. Evident’s simple, secure Identity Assurance Platform lets businesses confidently know who they are dealing with without handling sensitive personal data.

Job Description

Evident is the only identity and credential verification platform that prioritizes privacy by reducing risk and liability for holding personal data, and is the only verification solution that provides safe and secure access to verified personal data pulled from 6,500+ authoritative data sources through a single API. Evident's game-changing verification technology streamlines user approval process, minimizes attrition, and is built to scale as our customers’ needs change, proving that personal data exchange doesn’t have to come with high risk or unnecessary friction. The need to more confidently and comprehensively verify users is rapidly increasing, but so is the risk of interacting with and storing the sensitive personal data required to conduct elevated verification methods. This environment is compounded by new global data protection regulations like GDPR and CCPA that put parameters in place to safeguard data transmission, and put the onus on companies to adhere to new obligations that respect users’ privacy rights.
Companies need a better, faster way to share personal data so they can demonstrate regulatory compliance and achieve their business goals. Evident solves all of these challenges by supporting businesses’ compliance with ever-changing regulatory requirements while enabling them to thoroughly verify their users’ identities and credentials.
