Welcome to Meet Checkr! This series will give you an inside look into the driven folks who make Checkr happen. From Applicant Support to Sales, our diverse, dynamic employees have their own interesting stories to tell.
Our employees at Checkr come from a variety of background and past careers, but not many can say they managed a busy coffee shop for the better part of a decade. Edwin Morales, our Office Manager, spent 9 years running a San Francisco outlet of Peet’s Coffee and wasn’t interested in looking for a new job. But now he uses his skills to keep our office of more than 80 running every day.
We sat down with Morales to talk about the challenges of coordinating a busy startup, and his leadership in the San Francisco LGBT community.
