Veriff Welcomes New VP of Engineering, Hubert Behaghel
Veriff, a global identity verification provider, today announced that Hubert Behaghel has joined the company as Vice President of Engineering. As the latest addition to Veriff's leadership team, Behaghel will spearhead the company's engineering strategy to elevate its competitive expertise through industrialization and scalability, and will also streamline the engineering team's efforts. Hubert Behaghel is based in Veriff's Barcelona office in Spain.
Prior to joining Veriff, Behaghel was Typeform's first-ever VP of Engineering, where he oversaw a streamlined expansion of the company's engineering team, grew its global presence and introduced a range of new functions while reducing expenses. Under his leadership, Typeform's infrastructure became GDPR-compliant, multi-regional, and he opened the company's Latin American engineering hub.
"The identity crisis online has reached a breaking point. That's where Veriff comes in," said Behaghel. "I have been convinced since early on that I would be able to learn from Veriff's team while also bringing my own expertise. It's important to me as I want to help the Veriff Engineering community find its voice, both internally and externally."
Behaghel brings to Veriff nearly two decades of experience with industry titans such as Amazon, Marks and Spencer, and Sky, where he led significant expansion in their respective engineering divisions while introducing new initiatives and refining existing ones. At Sky, as the company's Head of Technology, Behaghel more than tripled the engineering team's size, scaled the Discovery platform by tens of millions of global users, and helped launch NBCU's Peacock streaming service. Hubert Behaghel holds a Master of Science degree from IMT Atlantique in France.
"As the global need for identity verification increases day by day, Hubert's proven skill set with scaling engineering capabilities will be invaluable to Veriff's continued growth," said Janer Gorohhov, CPO and co-founder of Veriff. "We're very excited to welcome him aboard, and to witness his impact on product delivery."
