As the first content designer at Checkr, you’ll not only partner with designers, researchers, product managers, and engineers to build software that improves people’s lives, but you’ll have the chance to make a big impact on how we do content. From concept to release, you’ll strategize and write copy that demystifies the background check process and encourages fair hiring. Millions of people use our products every day, and they’ll be reading the words you write to guide them along their journey. We can’t wait to work with you to make that journey even better.
