I previously sent an inquiry to Checkr about utilizing their API (ie. becoming a platform that can facilitate background checks as part of the platform’s service). They’re a great industry standard.
This response is from August, so it may not reflect the current reality. But I believe this is still the case. (Note: I’d clearly explained I was a developer and looking to do a direct integration).
They may let you become an API partner. But it doesn’t appear that they will make it easy.
To get started with Checkr, we require using a partner from our network listed below. The benefits of using a partner are:
Speed: Pre-built integrations that help you get signed up in minutes
Price: Discounted pricing on background checks by using our partners
Efficiency: Keep all of your data in one place and reduce manual entry
Preferred Partners: Checkr is working with two preferred partners, Zenefits and BreezyHR, who are offering Checkrusers with a free account. By signing up, you will have access to a full applicant tracking system or HR system in addition to running background checks.
Zenefits is a 100% cloud-based human capital management (HCM) platform that helps companies empower their modern workforces. In addition to Checkr, you will also have access to their suite of applications including payroll, time and attendance, benefits management, and more. Learn more here.
Breezy is an applicant tracking system (ATS) built to help you modernize your recruiting process. Manage end-to-end hiring that includes advertising openings on over 40 job boards, managing offers, running Checkr background checks, and onboarding new employees. Sign up here.
