“Our three core values of caring, teamwork and continuous improvement drive what we do here at Verafin, from our software development teams to sales and marketing, from customer success to human resources. Advice we would give to a prospective employee would be to illustrate that you are a team player that collaborates with your peers to solve problems and identify new, innovative solutions - examples of working on projects with singular teams or cross-functional teams can highlight your communication and problem-solving skills. Be open to learning new things, learn everything you can so you can adapt to change as it comes. You also need to find ways to demonstrate how you are passionate about a specific role or function - like outlining extracurricular activities or extra courses you have taken to improve your knowledge in this area.”
