Leasing for the Future | Confidence for Today
VERO is a vertical SaaS platform, purpose-built to mitigate risk, increase leasing velocity, and consolidate vendors in the rental real estate workflow. Our cloud-native platform handles everything from applicant pre-qualification through lease execution. VERO’s proprietary technology quickly and accurately verifies financial and personal information critical to risk mitigation and lease execution. VERO creates trust and confidence in the leasing process by empowering property owners and operators to work more efficiently and profitably while simultaneously allowing applicants to maintain control of their own data and financial identity.
We work on solving the complex technical problems necessary to build the best real estate technology infrastructure—from designing highly reliable systems to developing advanced algorithms to prevent fraud and automate intelligent tasks.
Respect & Empathy: Empathy - the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
Resolute: We’re obsessed with the word “why.” We challenge each other, we challenge assumptions and we challenge ourselves.
Customer Obsession: Customer centricity means we are obsessed with serving our customers needs with urgency, we are always focused on, and prioritize, solving for their pain. We are always focused, across all of our business units, on understanding their problems and optimizing to offer them solutions which they can utilize today and in the future.
Passion: We are passionate in developing unprecedented solutions to old industry problems and relentlessly push boundaries.
Execution: We believe that execution is paramount and that clearly communicated, measurable goals lead to strong, predictable outcomes. To that end, we strive to ensure that our tasks, processes, and strategies are focused on measurable outcomes, are lightweight and agile, and serve the desired outcome rather than incumber it.
Our engineering functions are dedicated to building value directly for customers or indirectly by delivering value to our other teams. Success in this role is determined by four primary attributes: delivery, collaboration, communication, and professional growth.
We strive to create passionate and results-oriented teams filled with open-minded people that can foster an environment of growth. We believe that by democratizing access to information, we can allow good ideas to percolate from anywhere and avoid siloed thinking. We work fast, hard, and with a focus on the fine details that allow our products to be delightful.
