Checkr was founded on 2014 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Checkr’s mission is to build a fairer future by improving understanding of the past. Our platform makes it easy for thousands of customers to hire millions of people every year at the speed of the gig economy. Using Checkr’s advanced background check technology, companies of all sizes can better understand the dynamics of the changing workforce, bring transparency and fairness to their hiring, and ultimately build a better future for workers.

Checkr is a startup that provides either online access or an API that returns automatically generated background checks. Checkr uses the same data sources as traditional background check companies, but can usually turn it around a lot more quickly than traditional providers.

Employees at Checkr are never without an opportunity to learn something new. Whether it’s working cross-functionally on a joint project or taking time to self-educate through Checkr’s educational reimbursement program, Checkrs are dedicated to improving every day.
