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 looking for people who are highly motivated and can learn quickly. Prior experience with IoT devices, databases management, video security systems, or access controls is helpful. We have a particular interest in folks who like to work with their hands - tell us about how a project that you have tinkered with or a renovation project you’ve worked on.
