An Insider's view of Verifi

How does your team reward individual success?

We have monthly spot awards that employees can nominate each other for. In 2018 50% of the employees received different awards for demonstrating teamwork, providing an amazing client experience, and meeting milestones

Toni

SVP, People Ops

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

It starts with a cross-department kickoff meeting, providing the context of the project and how it aligns with established OKR’s. There has to be a cadence of regular meetings set up to facilitate consistent communication and by using tools like the Atlassian Suite, we are able to provide visibility and transparency to all of our stakeholders.

Prakhar Lodha

Manager, Product Management

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started my career as a Specialist within the Operations Department and Quality Assurance was an area that was expanding. So when a position was made available on the team, I was given an opportunity to join. Over the next year, I moved into a Team Lead role and most recently, I was promoted to Manager of Client Support.

Cyril Tecson

Manager, Client Support

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

One big challenge is any time we are working on a project and realize new technology is needed. We address this by starting the project with proof of concept (POC), which gives us time to properly evaluate which technologies are best, based on different criteria such as scalability, testability, maintainability, performance, learning curve, etc.
