About Verkada
At Verkada, we’re rethinking what it means to be physically safe. Today, we build security cameras that detect action, identify danger and help keep people and places safe and secure. Using a combination of software and hardware, we’re transforming an industry that has seen little innovation for decades—and we already support thousands of customers. But this is just the beginning. We envision a world in which security systems feel as seamless and modern as the organizations they protect and our enterprise solution becomes a model for not just business security, but public security as well.

We are actively looking for a talented Site Reliability Engineer to join the Platform team and help scaling our infrastructure. Our small team's mission is to deliver a stable and secure infrastructure our engineers, products and customers can rely on. Over the last year, we have rolled out Terraform, Kubernetes and ArgoCD to 100% of our infrastructure as well as redefined the way we manage our AWS organization.  

As a member of the platform team dedicated to infrastructure, your role will be to manage this infrastructure and continue to make it easier for our team to monitor and scale it, be it by adopting 3rd party tools or design your own. Example projects include optimizing our cluster cost efficiency, roll out per-pod security groups, improve monitoring and alerting, adopt a service mesh...
