Verifone – Why Work For Us?


On April 14, 2981, in Honolulu, Hawaii, William "Bill" Melton incorporated his new tech company. His original intention was to provide a recourse for retailers who'd been swindled by people handing out bad checks. His product was a kind of verification device using phone lines - a verification phone.

But he soon pivoted. The credit card industry was relatively new at the time and processing was still being done with carbon paper. Bill saw a way to reduce costs for companies like Visa and MasterCard, while capitalizing on his new technology. Instead of verifying checks, he would provide local businesses a means to electronically process credit card payments. An thus, the Verifone payment device was born. 

Now, Verifone is one of the world's largest POS terminal vendors and a leading provider of payment and commerce solutions. We operate in more than 150 countries and employ nearly 6,000 people globally. Our steady growth has come organically, through a dedication to innovation and strategic partnerships, as well as from savvy acquisitions.


What It's Like to Work for Verifone

"I started as a sales engineer and now I'm a Global Product Manager. I've been able to travel around the world looking for the next (big) challenge. It's really exciting."

"Everyone at Verifone is a team player no matter what city, state or country you are in. It's nice to come into work every day knowing that my colleagues listen to my opinions and value the work I do."

"The people at Verifone are some of the smartest, most driven people I know, and they're certainly not afraid of challenges, no matter how difficult they may seem. Despite being located in multiple cities all over the world, somehow, the people at Verifone know how to come together the find real, tangible solutions and to build the best products and consumer experiences they possibly can."

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Verifone (Atlanta, GA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Very poor impression of the company based on their recruitment practices. According to their Company recruiter, my profile and experience was a perfect match to the type of candidate they were looking for. Never heard back. No answers to follow up emails.
