About the role

Checkr is looking for a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer to join Checkr X, our incubation program aimed at finding and bringing to market new product bets for Checkr. This team is specifically thinking about HR infrastructure for the new world of work, beyond background checks. It’s also designed to operate and iterate quickly like a new startup, while being able to leverage our existing strengths and assets from our core business. Think about joining a startup within a startup!


  • Collaborate with our founders and early adopters to design and implement new products
  • Develop new end to end web applications
  • Build new industry-leading APIs
  • Integrate with new data sources
  • Instrument and deploy new product experiments

What you bring:

  • Have founded or held early roles at fast-paced startups
  • 3+ years of full stack software development experience with Ruby (or a similar language) and React
  • Some good product sense - not every UI flow will have a mockup ready for you :)
  • A strong sense of ownership from feature design through production release
  • Understanding of staged rollouts and what’s needed for MVPs - imperfect today is better than perfect next week!
  • A desire to collaborate with external stakeholders

What you get:

  • A fast-paced and collaborative environment
  • Learning and development allowance
  • Competitive compensation and opportunity for advancement
  • 100% medical, dental and vision coverage
  • Flexible PTO policy
