A Look at Our Recent Event with Checkr
On September 12th, PowerToFly partnered with the Checkr team for an invite-only evening for women engineers.
Checkr is changing the way companies perform background checks. The event with PowerToFly was held at Checkr's gorgeous office in San Francisco's financial district where attendees had a chance to hear from a panel of Checkr's Engineering Managers and to network with Checkr's leaders, including Co-Founder & CTO Jonathan Perichon.
The evening's panelists included Checkr Engineering Managers Ritu Vincent, Anusha Rajan, Ben Jacobson and Eric Psalmond, who also delivered the evening's welcome address.
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. Today, only four years after Checkr started, the company is running one million background checks per month for more than 10,000 customers who they've helped hire millions of people for.
