“Veson Nautical’s culture was a key factor in my decision to work here. As a software development intern, I was given a lot of responsibility and had great mentors to guide me as I learned. Closer to graduation, I knew I wanted to stay in software in a different role where I had the chance to interact with clients, analyze their issues, and help them out. I moved into a client support role at Veson Nautical – and I can honestly say it’s been great."

Everyone in the company is very intelligent, hard-working, but still incredibly pleasant and fun to be around – I couldn't ask for a better work environment."
