Who We Are

At Verkada, we’re building the operating system for the physical world. 

We started in 2016 with video security cameras and an intuitive cloud-based platform, and in just six years, we've expanded to include five additional product lines (access control, environmental sensors and alarms, as well as visitor and mailroom management) that help enterprises to protect and manage their people and assets. 

Today more than 14,000 organizations across 63 countries worldwide trust Verkada as their physical security layer for easier management, intelligent control, and scalable deployments. We are valued at $3.2 billion, with $360 million raised in venture capital from investors including Linse Capital, MSD Partners, L.P., Felicis Ventures, Next47, Sequoia Capital, Meritech Capital, and First Round Capital. 

This is just the beginning. The need for businesses to secure and manage their people and physical assets with scale and speed is mission critical and continues to increase. Our teams are energized by the complex challenges we work on and the platform we are building to make the schools, hospitals, businesses and communities that we live and work in safer. 


We are looking for an exceptional People Partner (sometimes known externally as HR Generalists or HR Business Partners) to join our growing People team. People Partners will support an individual business group and be responsible for helping them scale all things “people” -- everything from employee questions all the way to driving strategic programs on behalf of the executive team. We believe in allowing each team to maintain a lot of control of how best to scale, which gives you huge autonomy. This role requires people passionate about doing dozens of things well every day to maximize our employee experience.

    • Lead day-to-day operations and employee requests for your team across benefits, operations, etc
    • Problem solve and implement strategic programs to help your team scale -- such as finding a PEO in new countries, optimizing onboarding programs, analyzing compensation levels, and building out performance management
    • Analyze data across a variety of sources to identify trends, patterns, and areas of opportunity
    • Drive cross-company programs to benefit our entire employee base
    • Anything else needed to help employees be productive and motivated at work for the entire employee lifecycle at Verkada

Requirements:

    • BA/BS degree. MBA or Master's degree a plus.
    • Demonstrated achievement in both academics and professional experiences
    • Strong problem-solving skills
    • 6+ years experience -- either in a people role or in roles demonstrating operational excellence and a passion for people
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills – Ability to effectively communicate with senior management in an efficient manner
