We keep it simple.
Meet the Vericant Team
We are a diverse group of people from a variety of backgrounds, countries, careers, and expertise. Within our team we speak more than 13 different languages, have traveled the world, and respect all walks of life. Our office space is bilingual, with the primary working language being English, but there’s plenty of business and communication being done in Chinese.
Every Friday in the Beijing office, after work, team members build friendships with each other by participating in a fun activity, going out for dinner and/or drinks, and playing games. In the past we’ve done things like go ice skating, play board games, go out for pizza, and even an escape room challenge.
Twice a year the US, Canada, and Shanghai teams join the Beijing team for a full team outing. The team outing is a chance for us to strengthen the relationships in our company and have fun while we do it! We’ve done many of different things for past team outings including, hikes on the Great Wall, a scavenger hunt through Beijing, playing Ultimate Frisbee, and a competitive game of Paintball.
Joining our team means growing with us
When you join Vericant, you’ll be paired with a coach who will help you get settled in during your first few weeks. They will also work with you to explore and develop your goals, and make plans to help you achieve your professional potential. Vericant will also provide you with a yearly stipend to help you attend networking and other professional development events.
We like our team members to be available at our Beijing headquarters, but we also know that life happens. Whether it’s working remotely, shifting working hours around, or working holidays or weekends to save as personal vacation days, we do our best to be accommodating.
All visa costs, required visa exits and flights are covered by us. Vericant provides all the paperwork needed to apply for a visa to China and visas, generally, require you to exit the country every 60 days. Team members will usually just make quick exits to Hong Kong, but visa exits can be paired with personal vacation. They are a great excuse to get out there and see Asia!
