A bit of context

Hi, I'm Jordan! I was born in Australia but grew up in Papua New Guinea & Indonesia. I then spent nearly 20 years working for some of the worlds largest insurance companies running IT all over the world.


I started building ChekRite 10 years ago and launched it 6 years ago. At ChekRite, we help companies harness observable information to make them safer, more productive and more efficient.
