Checkr’s pioneering AI-powered approach to background checks enables fast, accurate, compliant and secure screening of candidates, contractors and third parties at the pace of business.
“Checkr is a dynamic industry disruptor and we are pleased to welcome a company whose values are as thoughtful as their business technology solutions,” said Colorado Governor Jared Polis. “With Checkr’s commitment to fair chance hiring, these new 1,500 high quality jobs over a period of 10 years will provide Coloradans with diverse backgrounds and skills meaningful opportunities for years to come.”
Founded in 2014, Checkr has been widely recognized for their innovative approach to background checks and the rapid adoption rate of its technology. With over 10,000 customers running more than 1.5 million background checks per month, Checkr joins a vibrant tech community spanning Denver’s urban corridor that chooses to call Colorado home.
“Colorado is the perfect location for our second headquarters, and we are very excited to become a part of the vibrant Denver community,” said Checkr Co-founder & CEO Daniel Yanisse. “We look forward to partnering with Governor Polis and other leaders to increase fair chance hiring and expand economic opportunities for Coloradans now and in the coming years.”
