Chief People and Operations Officer
Linda Shaffer began her professional career 30 years ago. Today, she is the Chief People and Operations Officer of Checkr. Checkr is a startup that provides either online access or an API that returns automatically generated background checks. Checkr uses the same data sources as traditional background check companies, but can usually turn it around a lot more quickly than traditional providers.
Shaffer first got her start in 1991 as an energy efficiency analyst at New York Power Authority. From there, she went on to Hagler Bailly Consulting Inc, before eventually rising to executive director, client services and ad operations at YP, her most recent position prior to joining Checkr.
Shaffer graduated from the University of Chicago – Booth School of Business with an MBA and from Princeton University with an undergraduate degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering.
