Working for Evident: People, Perks, and Purpose
January 20, 2022
I joined Evident in June 2019 as the company’s HR and recruiting lead because I understood the importance of protecting personal data and mitigating risk, and I wanted to be a part of a company that was building a product that could help businesses manage this more effectively.
I knew our technology had the potential to make a huge impact on a lot of people and improve their lives in various ways, and while our solution has evolved over time – as is the case with most startups – our focus has remained the same: mitigating business risk with our automated verification technology.
What started out as an identity verification and background check solution has since expanded to incorporate additional and more robust capabilities, including certificates of insurance (COIs) verification, which has emerged as a market leader in reducing third-party risk for enterprises.
If you’re like me, your preconception of insurance is likely rooted in how it’s associated with most major lifecycle events (e.g. healthcare, auto, homeowners, etc.), and I’ll admit I initially thought it wasn’t the most exciting or innovative industry, but through Evident, I’ve learned how the insurance world encompasses so much more than its consumer applications, especially when you look through the lens of managing third-party risk.
Just this year alone, our insurance verification solution helped:
- One of the largest convenience store chains in the world reduce their franchisee risk by 80%
- A Fortune 50 telecom enterprise get discounts on insurance premiums to the tune of 5%, and increase their compliance rates by 800% within the first 3 months of engagement
- Increase driver and vehicle owner onboarding efficiency for supply chain disruptor, 5F-SuperHighway, by nearly 50% in 3 months
At Evident, employees aren’t just working for a company that provides exceptional benefits, offers a remote-first work environment, and values our professional growth and personal development, but we’re also making meaningful contributions to building a product that impacts companies you do business with every day.
