About Us

About Background Runner

We founded Background Runner, a Woman-Owned Business, to fix the long standing customer service problems of employers being treated as numbers and applicants being treated as objects. We believe that every Background Check and Screening is a critical piece of business information that may change the course of your business and the lives of those we screen. We pride ourselves on delivering accurate and dependable results fast enough to ensure your company has the information to hire the candidates you want.

Every member of our customer service team is located in our Los Angeles based headquarters, so your issues never get lost in translation and your support never leaves our border. There is no one reading off a script – just a hard-working team helping you get your applicants processed and your questions answered.


Our technology has access to hundreds of millions of records for people in the United States and around the world.


While some information must be manually retrieved, our technology allows us to instantly perform most Background Checks, giving you results in seconds.


Getting the information you need shouldn’t be a maze of confusion and should be as easy as possible.


Every hiring situation is unique: different companies, candidates and positions may require different Background Checks and Screenings.


You need this information, which is why we offer our services at a fair and affordable price.


Our website and technology are available to you on any device, at any time. We meet WCAG 2.1 AA standards so that those with disabilities can also use our service.
