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.

Core Command is a new team created shortly after a successful launch of our Access Control product to help scale Verkada from a Security Camera company to a true multi-product building security OS. We focus on the pieces that are shared between all products and our goal is to help product teams move faster as well as turn Verkada into a scalable enterprise platform. As a member of the Core team, you will work closely with the engineering team to identify developer bottlenecks and design tools, systems, and architecture to improve developer productivity in our mission to create the best-in-class connected enterprise security devices. You may also work closely with Product, Design, and Engineers to develop great user experiences -- not just features -- and to help build and scale a web-based platform that will support a suite of connected devices for enterprise customers at scale.
