Engineering Manager - Access Control

San Mateo, California /
Engineering – Software - Access Control /
Full-Time
Who We Are
At Verkada, we’re rethinking what it means to be physically safe. Designed with simplicity in mind, we currently offer five product lines (video security cameras, access control, environmental sensors, alarms and visitor management), which provide seamless visibility through an integrated secure cloud-based software platform. Over 9,700+ organizations worldwide trust Verkada as their physical security layer for easier management, frictionless scalability and cutting-edge innovation. 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 a small, dynamic team focused on building cloud-managed access control systems. It’s Verkada’s second major product line and is already growing faster than the flagship cameras product. It’s a startup within a startup with a fair amount of autonomy.

We’re looking for a strong engineering manager who can lead and grow a fullstack team.

We are on the LinkedIn Top Startups 2019, 2020 & 2021 list and #4 on the Forbes America’s Best Startup Employers 2020.
