BeenVerified was founded in New York by Josh Levy and Ross Cohen in 2007. At the time, their mission was to provide easy and affordable access to public records - something that, in 2007, was only really accessible to corporations. Since then our mission has expanded to developing products and services that grant access to information and data across a number of verticals. In service of this mission, BeenVerified has launched 5 consumer brands including BeenVerified, Numberguru, PeopleLooker, NeighborWho, and Ownerly.
In today’s ever-changing world, filled with fake news, deception and a lack of transparency, we believe equal access to unbiased data and information can allow our customers to empower and protect themselves. Our mission is to develop a diverse portfolio of technologies, products, and services, that gives access to all people.About BeenVerified
We were named the fastest growing company in New York City and #26 in the country by INC Magazine in 2013.
Our culture is a laid back, family atmosphere where everyone is 100% committed to making our brand a household name. Team members are free to dress in whatever makes them feel comfortable. Shorts and sandals are OK. We're not hung up on dogma, we're focused on results and improving every day. We want to work with individuals who are extremely passionate about honing their craft until they are in the top .01% of their field.
This is an opportunity to be part of a special group of people who have taken an idea and are in the process of bringing it to the forefront.
