Fellowship

Fellowship

Fellows design, configure, and implement solutions that speak to the unique needs of Vera’s clients.

About the Fellowship

As a Fellow, you’ll work with a diverse global team dedicated to delivering cutting-edge solutions that help our clients leave behind the legacy of difficult systems and instead leverage a powerful, user-friendly platform that lets them focus on what's important: carrying out their missions. Fellows play key roles across our marketing, operations, consulting, and product teams. You will join the Fellowship as part of a cohort and benefit from ongoing learning opportunities, leadership development, and mentorship from leaders within Vera. In previous years, we have gathered all Fellows for a week of in-person, intensive training to lay a foundational understanding of the company and of basic technical concepts. Due to COVID-19, we have made the decision to proceed with remote onboarding and training this year. You will attend remote training and onboarding as a cohort in mid-June as we all make the best of a hard situation. The training will mix dynamic sessions on the project lifecycle and Salesforce platform, with team-building and professional skills development activities.

Application Process & Timeline

Our application process is designed to assess your fit for Vera Solutions, as well as your skills and experience. Every year, we receive a high volume of inspiring candidates, and can only accept a small percentage.

Vera Solutions Fellowship

All Fellows will join a mandatory orientation and training week in July (exact dates to be determined). Fellowships will commence directly following the orientation week.

“After the first 10 days, I felt like Vera had already invested more in me than other companies invest in the first two years. The management team was forthcoming and transparent in answering every question and made Fellows feel like we had been a part of the team for years."

Fellowship FAQs

Fellows work in our Cape Town, London, Mumbai, São Paulo, and Washington DC offices.

In previous years, we have gathered all Fellows for a week of in-person, intensive training to lay a foundational understanding of the company and of basic technical concepts. Due to COVID-19, you will instead attend remote training and onboarding as a cohort in June.

The Fellowship, and employment with Vera in general, is a full-time commitment – your Fellowship lasts for your first year at Vera, but you will also have a job title separate from Fellow (e.g. Associate Consultant) and remain employed beyond that as long as you have demonstrated growth and continued commitment to developing your technical, project management, and communication skills.

Fellows are permanent, full-time staff and play an integral part towards the company’s success. The legacy of the fellowship is apparent around the company – former fellows have grown to take up leadership positions in technical design, project management, and business development.

We are evaluating the safety of business-related travel on an ongoing basis. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, consulting Fellows travelled very occasionally for project work (up to 2 times in their first year).

Yes! As with all members of our team, Fellows receive compensation commensurate with the cost of living and receive all of Vera’s company-wide benefits, including 100% coverage of health insurance premiums, paid parental leave, and generous paid time off.

The 2022-23 Fellows represent 6 nationalities, growing our team to more than 100 full-time employees.
