Our Investors and Funding Partners
I started with Verge 2+ years ago as a Solutions Analyst and have enjoyed every minute. Looking back, I'm still in awe at the amount of support I received in finding my place at Verge, both professionally and personally. It didn't matter who or when I reached out with questions; my team always made time to answer them. Today, they continue to support my growth through learning and work opportunities and consider my ideas and feedback for improving our product. A career at Verge is full of options and adventures to choose your path.
I have had the pleasure of working at Verge for a year and a half now. I started as a Junior Developer and was initially quite nervous, however found everyone to be welcoming, supportive, and helpful. Verge has given me the skills and experience needed to excel in the modern technological industry, while enjoying many perks, including a health spending account, working from home allowance, internet allowance, and assistance paying for learning opportunities. What I especially appreciate about working for Verge is that there is not any micro-management, everyone works together as a team, and recognition for hard work is often provided.
Verge is changing the landscape of agriculture in the area of operational movement and path planning as a real economic savings. I enjoy connecting with growers from different countries and regions about their diverse farm operations and take pride in supporting them through each step of the adoption and implementation process. The most rewarding part is when a customer sees the positive results from trusting the change and its impact on their overall operation.
Verge is a truly exciting project that pushes the limits of agriculture technology and allows us as developers to challenge our strengths and knowledge-base. It’s invigorating, educational and fun to be working on something that has the ability to impact a global industry. This project has brought many very talented people together and I am very excited for the future here.
