Only at the age 26, Kaarel has built a 230-people global company that recently closed 15,5 million USD financing round. Kaarel has never worked in big corporations and has always built projects and companies based on his own understanding and what he wants the company to be. Veriff is his 12th project: "I recommend everybody to start a business as early as possible because you will make a lot of mistakes. But when young and still living at home, you have got a roof above your head and breakfast, lunch and dinner at the table."
We did it again! Our second hackathon was full of fresh ideas, motivated participants, and positive outcomes. To give you a better overview and insight, we interviewed the organizer Kalev Rundu, Senior Product Manager at Veriff, and two Veriffians that took part.
Sacha Vasilkioti is a FinTech Product Manager at Veriff. She joined the company back in April 2019 as a Verification Team Lead, where she managed a team and scaled up the operational process.
Veriff recently reached 500 employees globally and is expanding even more. To help our growing company, we are extremely proud and excited to have Jason Butler join our Talent Acquisition team in the U.S.
