A new era of background checks.

Since graduating Y Combinator in 2014, Checkr has become the leading technology company in the background check industry. Checkr’s mission is to build a fairer future by designing technology to create opportunities for all. As a company that provides modern and compliant background checks for global enterprises and startups, Checkr knows first hand how difficult it may be for individuals with prior criminal history to find employment and we want to help provide second chances for justice-impacted people. We encourage qualified individuals with prior criminal histories to apply for any of our roles. More than 3,000 businesses trust Checkr for their background screenings including Uber, Instacart, Netflix, Zenefits, GrubHub, Home Depot, and more. Checkr is also featured on BuiltIn as one of the top places to work in 2023. The company is funded by Accel Partners, Google Ventures, Y Combinator and TRowePrice, and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA. Find out more about Checkr at www.checkr.com.
