OPEN TALK: Building Trust with a Background Check API

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Background checks are often misunderstood and considered complex. Accurate Background set out to change that perception and saw a need to create a simple, RESTful API in an industry that has historically relied on archaic system integrations. With the surge of the “sharing” or “on-demand” economy, largely built on trust between the app and the consumer, companies required the ability to connect to background checks more easily and faster than ever. Whether it is an organization focused on hiring or the sharing economy, companies rely heavily on building trust between their brand and their customer. Background checks aid in that effort to mitigate risk. 

In this session, attendees will learn how we went about building the API, the use cases we had in mind, and the technology we chose to leverage to make ordering background checks and retrieving results easier than ever. Along the way we will talk about how we tested for scalability, thought through the developer experience, and ensured we had a product that simplified background screening for a variety of industries and purposes.
