What’s it like to work at Vericant?
I enjoy speaking to young, Chinese students from all over the country and hearing about their experiences and their lives. Working with Vericant, I get to meet the current generation of Chinese students who will become future leaders. Working in a growing startup is an experience worth having. Even as a relatively junior team member, I am in close contact with Vericant’s founders. In a bigger company, I would never have the same level of personal contact that we have with Vericant’s leaders.Former Operations Associate
At Vericant, I’m not just earning the money to pay bills and to put food on the table. I’m learning how a startup is run, how to manage small projects and processes that are essential to the operations of the business, and how to get things done effectively. In none of the previous organizations that I worked for did I feel like I was challenged to grow and to learn new things. At Vericant, I really feel like I’m part of a team that is working towards a common goal. I’m gaining the kind of experience that will eventually enable me to run my own company and to manage people and projects.Former Junior Operations Manager
Working with Vericant has some great perks:
- Opportunity to guide a strong brand which is already the world leader in 3rd-party admissions video interviews
- Work in a dynamic, challenging, international, and multilingual environment
- Be part of a diverse team with a high level of energy, integrity and motivation to win
- Opportunity to grow into a management or leadership role
- Join a workplace environment which commits to diversity and inclusion
- Receive and follow an individual professional development plan
- Visa sponsorship available for non-Chinese citizens
- Travel around China frequently for work events and presentations
- Flexible working hours; work from home, work from a hotel on the road, or work from our Beijing office. We like people to have a regular, in-person presence in Beijing, but there are days when you would simply get more done by working from elsewhere, and we understand that
- Paid sick leave; when our employees are sick, the only thing we want them concerned with is getting well
