Verifone Continues Growing its Bucharest Innovation Center Team after Celebrating One Year in Romania

The company plans to hire 100 more people next year. Positions are available in software, product management, digital sales, customer support, and finance

Bucharest - October 6th 2021: Verifone Romania, a FinTech leader providing end-to-end payment and commerce solutions, is increasing its operations within the Innovation Center in Bucharest, formerly known as 2Checkout, which Verifone acquired in 2020. After a year of presence on the Romanian market, Verifone intensifies its efforts to grow the research and innovation team in the Romanian capital.

Around 400 employees are currently working in Bucharest, and the company intends to hire another 100 next year. Romanian specialists can contribute to global projects and innovative products in the field of payments and digital commerce.

Verifone also offers dedicated development programs for its employees, and especially for technology specialists since they make 40% of the team in Bucharest.

"The projects developed in Bucharest involve the latest technologies, from cloud solutions and microservices to cryptocurrencies. Our employees here have the opportunity to work with some of the foremost experts in the field, contributing to the future of the e-commerce industry," said Peyton O'Connor, Head of Human Resources, Verifone. "More than 60 patents submitted per year, created by our Global Engineering team, are proof of the intense innovation process which the company embraces," she added.

Verifone is developing a unified global platform for payment and e-commerce solutions to provide its customers and end buyers with a seamless end-to-end shopping experience, for online or offline payments, by card, or other methods. The company's global portfolio includes a wide variety of payment solutions, from the classic payment terminals to ordering kiosks in fast-food chains, tablets, or displays in taxis or specialized software for payment.

Since acquiring 2Checkout, Verifone promoted over 10% of the initial team, some of the employees taking over global roles within the organization. The company also supports an inclusive culture that encourages women in the field of Tech. For example, this year's edition of the Women Mentorship dedicated program involved over 30 mentors and mentees, of which 10% were from Romania.

Verifone Romania also offers an internship program dedicated to young people - Verifone Internship Program. This year, nine interns benefited from this program, and five of them were hired into permanent positions.

In the current pandemic context, the team operates remotely, and working in the office is on a volunteering basis.
