An Insider's view of Veeva

At Veeva you can "work anywhere" which means you can choose to work in an office or at home on any given day. Our work processes are designed so that you can be productive in an environment that works best for you.

Kristin

VP, Talent Attraction

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are building a new product to help clinical trials run faster and more efficiently. I can't imagine any other opportunity that would be as impactful, especially in a time of public health crisis. Veeva has a pragmatic approach to technology, we don’t go after shiny new things, but rather focus on stable technologies that continue to evolve.

Jacob

VP, Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

After graduating from the University of Texas, Arlington, I joined Veeva as an Associate Software Engineer in their Generation Veeva program. Since then, I've been with the company for three years now, have been promoted to a Software Engineer, and moved from our Pleasanton, CA HQ to one of our first engineers in Boston, MA.

Shilpa

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

Our goal for 2025 is to be 10,000 employees and still "be Veeva" meaning continuing that startup mentality and speed. Even though today we have 4,300 people and $1.4 billion in revenue, we maintain a startup culture - remaining agile, fast, and constant innovation.
