Tech firm Checkr to open Orlando office and create hundreds of local jobs


    An out-of-state tech firm will open a new office in Orlando with 630 jobs after being approved on Aug. 23 for economic incentives.

    City of Orlando commissioners approved up to $1.1 million in incentives to coax background check software company Checkr Inc. to the region. Checkr, with dual headquarters in Denver and San Francisco, plans to open a sizable local office and create jobs, according to an incentive agreement between Checkr and the city. Checkr executives signed the agreement before the vote.
