About ZIVVER

Founded in 2015, we're an exciting and fast growing young business, located in Amsterdam. We offer a unique platform for secure communication. Our current proposition entails e-mail, chat and file- transfer, but we are evolving to other dimensions of communication such as video, workflow support, digital signatures etc. Why do we even bother with secure communications? Because sensitive personal and corporate data goes around basically unprotected now. Concern about this is on the rise and new very strict European legislation on the protection of personal data creates our sweet spot; we are one of the only platforms in the world that can really help companies prevent data leaks. We provide assistance and security to both users and administrators in all stages of sending and receiving sensitive information to create a truly unique solution that surpasses anything you have seen before in this market.

ZIVVER is growing fast. We are backed by one of the most entrepreneurial VC’s of the Netherlands. We are now looking for one or two Product Owners to join our strong team.

How will we continue?

You want to be successful and we want you to be successful. That is why we take the selection process very seriously. Our process has three rounds. During these rounds you get to know the team and perhaps we will give you some homework. We like to see you in action.

Facts are the basis of our actions. That is why we would like the opportunity to review the successes from your past by former employers or customers.
