Launched in 2016, Certn uses AI and machine learning to streamline the candidate screening process. Its expedited, frictionless background check experience allows employers to make fact based hiring decisions faster and better, reducing costs and giving them an edge in this highly competitive labor market. The team has built a proprietary screening platform that connects to all major global people data sources, which enable background checks to be completed in minutes instead of days or weeks. The company has also redesigned the candidate/tenant screening process, allowing them to use any mobile or desktop device to fill out their details and upload their ID and a live photo.
Our security thesis highlights the growing importance of identity and reputation to ongoing and emerging enterprise security and data management. Certn is at the forefront of this thesis, and we’re excited to see how the company continues to execute on its mission!
