Checkr’s mission is to build a fairer future by improving the understanding of the past. Since graduating Y-Combinator in 2014, Checkr’s product has shifted the on-demand economy and has continued to scale into serving enterprise companies across various industries. As a company that provides modern and compliant background checks for global enterprises and startups, Checkr knows first hand how difficult it may be for individuals with prior criminal history to find employment and we want to help provide fair chances for the formerly convicted. A career with Checkr provides the opportunity to make an impact on the professional lives of millions of people and we encourage all qualified individuals to apply for our roles.

Checkr is looking for Summer 2020 Interns to work on high impact engineering projects that help build a fairer future for all. When you join our team, you'll gain real world experience with web APIs and see how we build microservices to scale. You'll learn how we use ML/NLP to optimize our name matching algorithm, and get a chance to play with our Kubernetes continuous deployment pipeline. You'll also be a core part of our mission to help second chance citizens re-enter the job marketplace. Our intern program is meant for students who are seeking to enrich their experience with understanding how a feature is conceptualized, built and shipped to production.

Checkr’s internship program is an amazing opportunity for anyone who is pursuing a career in software development and wishes to learn from a diverse cultural perspective. We are looking for candidates who have strong understanding of engineering principles and who are interested in learning about open source technologies. Our interns will exude curiosity tempered with a #getshitdone mentality. This role is open to all types of backgrounds.

What we value in an intern:

  • Engineering awareness in Backend, Full-Stack, Data Engineering or DevOps
  • Strong problem solving skills, attention to detail, and pride in your work
  • Self-awareness and a desire to better yourself
  • Curiosity about how and why things work
  • Must be graduating in June 2021 OR have graduated from a bootcamp

What you get:

  • A fast-paced and collaborative environment where we leverage the latest technology
  • Hands-on coaching and professional development
  • Competitive compensation for the summer and opportunity for advancement
  • Catered lunch, dinner, and snacks
  • Housing option(s) available 
  • Summer time fun with various social events!
