About Verkada
At Verkada, we’re rethinking what it means to be physically safe. Today, we build IoT
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. Verkada has raised over $140 million from backers including Sequoia Capital,
First Round, Meritech, and Siemens.

    • 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
