PowerToFly was back in our "home away from home" of San Francisco (as a remote company, everywhere is kind of home) to present our fourth (!!!) event with a truly extraordinary company: Checkr.
If you're not familiar with Checkr, they're the leading background check company using artificial intelligence and machine learning to make hiring more inclusive and efficient. They work with an impressive roster of clients and are continuing to grow. If you're curious, you should check out their website and careers page.
Our September 5th event was hosted by PowerToFly's Jamie Lipiner. Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "I didn't know about Checkr before this event. I love the panel of speakers. They came across as genuine and thoughtful people—the kind I would enjoy knowing."
The evening included an insightful tech talk by Checkr's Michelle Berry, Software Engineer entitled Zero message loss: Kafka tooling at Checkr. After her tech talk, Michelle joined a panel of Checkr's women tech leaders for a lively discussion and audience Q&A session. Our panelists included:
- Adrienne Pajer, Engineering Manager
- Holly Bowen, Engineer
- Cheryl Mak, Data Analyst
- Elena Horner, Product Manager
A full house at our event with Checkr!
