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’re looking for a smart, motivated and experienced executive assistant to support our VP of Engineering and the broader software engineering department. The ideal candidate is focused and detail-oriented, proactively making sure that all bases are covered. They will be highly organized and professional, resourceful, efficient, flexible and will thrive in a fast paced environment.

    • Help drive a significant portion of engineering culture activities such as: procuring swag, organizing events for multiple engineering teams, coordinating quarterly award ceremonies, and creating slide decks.
    • Assist with organizing and executing large engineering meetings such as all-hands and demos

    • Strong work ethic -- a willingness to go above and beyond is key
    • Logistical coordinating or event planning experience
