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.

The Role
Verkada is looking for software engineering interns to join our team for an exciting and challenging internship. We are seeking interns who will thrive in a startup culture working alongside teammates to write tools to support the launch of products that will be utilized by customers across the globe. As an intern working with the Computer Vision team, you will be working on one or more highly impactful projects that will help create an exciting user experience. You will have opportunities to work with engineers across multiple teams to implement the latest iterations of Verkada’s flagship software powered by computer vision and deep learning!
