Love what you do and never work a day in your life


The word "deverus" comes from a mixture of Latin and Spanish and essentially means "from the truth." Over 18 years ago, deverus was started with a fundamental belief that from asking the right questions about our clients' wants and needs, a certain truth will arise, and "from the truth" we will work to bring the right solutions that create lasting value to our clients and their customers.


Today deverus' drive for innovating industry-changing solutions, knowledge of the industry, and unparalleled customer support help HR make critical hiring decisions using data for background checks like criminal records, education and employment verifications, drug and assessment testing, and more. We deliver our services to over 35,000 businesses, hiring more than 2.5 million employees per year, using over 75 trusted partners.


Our goal is to continue developing cutting edge services to help make critical hiring decisions. We see ourselves playing a larger role in these decisions by helping our partners provide new innovations in mobile applications, integrations, compliance, automation, security, and privacy while still helping HR reduce time to hire, liability, and costs.
