Checkr 今天官方宣布已经筹集了1亿美元的C系列基金,由T. Rowe Price Associates公司管理的基金和账户,以及现有投资者Accel和Y Combinator的参与。这对我们来说是一个重要的里程碑,我们很高兴能把这些资金投入到帮助我们的客户更快地雇佣更多的人上。

自成立以来,我们一直致力于提供快速、无偏见的背景调查,同时通过公平的机会为7000万有犯罪记录的美国人争取更公平的未来。

现在,四年来,我们每月为一万多名客户进行一百万次的背景调查,并帮助这些公司雇佣了数百万人。

扩大客户进入新行业。

通过这种投资,我们正在加快向企业部门(包括人员和零售)的扩张,以帮助这些高规模的招聘行业在当今日益增长的灵活劳动力市场中展开竞争,在这些领域,招聘速度至关重要。

我们很高兴能帮助Adecco和Allstate和rideshare leader Lyft这样的公司,使他们在新工作领域的筛选实践更加现代化,为他们的招聘带来速度、透明度和公平性,最终为员工创造更美好的未来。这只是最近三家公司加入成千上万人的例子,他们依靠我们的背景调查平台来支持他们的招聘需求。

提升我们的技术和团队。

今天的资金也将允许我们扩展我们的背景检查技术,在我们的核心平台中进一步发挥人工智能和机器学习的作用,以提高我们的客户的速度、数据洞察力和准确性。

为了帮助我们实现这些目标,我们将在2018年将员工人数增加一倍。我们将通过工程和产品招聘,帮助扩大我们的平台、销售和合规,以推动我们的企业增长,以及其他许多业务。作为我们团队成长的一部分,我们也力争在年底前实现在Checkr上实现5%的招聘目标。

更多的未来

在Checkr的核心,我们致力于为员工建立和支持一个更美好的未来,让被忽视的员工有公平的就业机会,并为公司提供寻找最佳人选的洞察力。有了这笔资金,我们将能够继续这个使命,并帮助塑造这个新的工作世界的未来。

虽然这是令人惊奇的四年,但我们才刚开始。我们迫不及待地想分享下一个。

 

 

 

 



 
We’ve Raised $100 Million to Help More Companies Accelerate Hiring
 

 

 

We are thrilled to announce that we’ve raised $100 million in Series C funding led by funds and accounts managed by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc. with participation from existing investors Accel and Y Combinator. This is an important milestone for us, and we’re excited to put these funds to work to help our customers hire great people faster.


Since founding Checkr, we’ve been focused on providing fast, unbiased background checks, while championing a fairer future through fair chance hiring for the 70 million Americans with a criminal record. Now, four years laters, we’re running one million background checks per month for more than 10,000 customers and have helped these companies hire millions of people.

Broadening customer reach into new industries

With this investment, we’re accelerating our expansion into enterprise sectors, including staffing and retail, to help these high volume hiring industries compete in today’s growing landscape of flexible workers, where speed to hire is critical.

We’re excited to help companies like Adecco and Allstate and rideshare leader Lyft, modernize their screening practices for the new world of work, bringing speed, transparency and fairness to their hiring - and, ultimately, a better future for workers. These are just three recent examples of companies joining the ranks of thousands of others who rely on our background check platform to support their hiring needs.

Boosting our technology and our team

Today’s funding will also allow us to expand our background check technology, furthering the roles of artificial intelligence and machine learning within our core platform to increase speed, data insights and accuracy for our customers.

To help us achieve these goals, we will nearly double our employee headcount in 2018. We’ll be hiring across engineering and product to help expand our platform, sales and compliance to drive our enterprise growth, and many others. As part of our team growth, we are also striving to hit a five percent fair chance hiring goal at Checkr by the end of the year.

Even more to come

At the core of Checkr, we are deeply committed to building and supporting a better future for workers by allowing the overlooked to have a fair chance at employment and providing companies with the insights to find the best candidates for the job. With this funding, we’ll be able to continue this mission and help shape the future of this new world of work.

While it’s been an amazing four years, we’re just getting started. We can’t wait to share what’s next.
