Compensation at Checkr

Our total rewards approach to compensation includes cash, equity, benefits, perks, and experiences. At all levels of the company, we balance short term and long term compensation elements with incentives for high performance. We benchmark new hire compensation using competitive salary data for companies of similar size and stage. We also use the geographic cost of labor in each market to determine a fair market value for each role and region. Once you are on board, you can expect a regular review of your compensation to ensure that it continues to be competitive and aligned with individual impact and company performance.

Pay Transparency

One of our core values at Checkr is transparency and in keeping with that value, we have decided to go beyond what is expected of us and be transparent about our pay. Employees have access to the salary range for their role, level and location. For candidates, we share our representative target salary range and benefits offerings. Roles that are considered remote will include the salary range for all possible locations, with an explanation that if a candidate is selected for a recruiting screen, we will communicate the exact range, based off of the candidate’s location, at the beginning of the call.

Diversity and belonging

The background check has an incredible impact on the lives of millions of jobseekers. We believe that in order to build the best product and company, we need a diverse set of perspectives and lived experiences in the room.

That includes bringing in people of different races, genders, sexualities, ages, education levels, caregiver, abilities, and veteran status, along with people with different backgrounds and people whose histories are impacted by our justice system. Beyond bringing in the best talent, we strive to create space and opportunities for diverse perspectives to be heard and considered in shaping decisions across Checkr.
