I haven't heard anything yet, what should I do?
Firstly, don’t worry, responses won’t always be instant but we’ll always be in touch. Definitely check your spam folder, in case our email got filtered, and if you want to be certain then do feel free to reach out to email@example.com. And make sure you submitted your resume via our main careers page when applying, as this is the only place to do it!
Does hiring always follow a standard process?
Yes, usually, but not always. It can differ a little, based on the position. No matter what, our recruiter will always keep you updated with any new information. And you can see the standard overall process on our hiring process page.
Do I need to add a cover letter?
If it’s mentioned then yes. Otherwise, it’s not mandatory, but on a cover letter you have the opportunity to bring out the answer to “Why you?”. And we really do like honest and memorable cover letters, not the templates.
Why do some applications have deadlines?
It’s important for us to find the right person to join our Veriffians. This is why candidates are not hired when the deadline comes, but when the right person is found. With some positions we’ll find the perfect match quickly, but with some positions we’re ready to wait a little longer. Nevertheless, we recommend applying as soon as the perfect position catches your eye. We have experience in finding the right person in just a week.
How long does recruitment take?
It really depends on the position you’re applying for. It can take anywhere from 1 week to 5 weeks.
What should I prepare for the interview?
It should be obvious, but DO YOUR RESEARCH. We really appreciate it if you come in and already know Veriff's mission and story. Consider why you would like to work at Veriff and be prepared to talk about this.
Do I have to wear an official outfit?
Just be you and feel comfortable. If your interview is in the office, this is like our home, so we have a strong slippers policy. It’s a nice opportunity to wear your favorite socks and show us who you are. If it’s a video interview, we’re less likely to ask to see your socks, but again, be yourself and feel comfortable.
If I’m not successful, can I apply again?
Yes, but don’t rush it. Make sure you feel that this time you have more experience and will meet the potential requirements. You can also reach out to us to express your interest in the existing email thread.
What if I’m interested in multiple vacancies?
You can apply for more than one vacancy. Think through before sending us your application and apply only for the positions which you are truly interested in, and where you meet the requirements.
There isn’t a position available I’m into, but can I still submit a resume?
We’re not receiving resumes right now. However, you can drop us an email, let us know what position you’re interested in, and we can add you to our talent community. We’ll be in touch if the right role comes up!
And always keep your eye on our careers page, as we have new positions being posted regularly.
Why aren’t salaries mentioned in your ads?
We do regular research to get the right salary in the market we’re hiring for. The salary greatly depends on whether we are hiring for a senior or junior role, so we can be flexible. As we do not have fixed salaries, we are open to discussing this further based on the seniority of a candidate. We also have flexibility in case you’d prefer a more stock option-heavy offer over a basic salary-heavy offer.
Why do you want to know my salary expectations?
Knowing your expectation helps us know if we can meet it. We’re going to make an honest offer based on our well-researched salary brackets. We want to be mindful of your time and be certain we can fulfill your expectations.
How easy is it to change offices?
Veriff currently has sales-oriented teams in London and New York, and a product and engineering hub in Barcelona. All other departments are in our Estonian offices, in Tallinn and Tartu. As all offices are there for a reason then there might not be the opportunity to work in a different office if the rest of your team is located in another city or country. We approach it on a case-by-case basis.
Can I apply from another country?
Yes. Our team is really multicultural and more than happy to help you to relocate. If needed, we’ll help you with a visa and living permit. We’re also offering a relocation bonus, to support selected candidates who are moving to Estonia.
Do you offer part-time work?
It depends on the requirements of an available position. We’re mainly looking for people to work at Veriff full-time, but it can happen that we need someone to work with us part-time. Check out our careers page and the requirements for your desired position.
Do you have internship opportunities?
We do not have traditional summer internships programs. We offer internship positions based on our needs throughout the year, and when there are available mentors and great projects. Our internships offer great independence and a chance to really work on something meaningful. However, they pop up on a case-by-case basis. If you’re interested in working as an intern, you can keep an eye on us and our careers page.
