Who We Are
Verkada is the largest cloud-based B2B physical security platform company in the world. Only Verkada offers six product lines — video security cameras, access control, environmental sensors, alarms, workplace and intercoms — integrated with a single cloud-based software platform.
Designed with simplicity and scalability in mind, Verkada gives organizations the real-time insight to know what could impact the safety and comfort of people throughout their physical environment, while empowering them to take immediate action to minimize security risks, workplace frustrations and costly inefficiencies.
Founded in 2016 with more than $460M in funding raised to date, Verkada has expanded rapidly with 15 offices across three continents, 1,600+ full-time employees and 20,000+ customers across 70+ countries.
Overview
Verkada’s mission is to become the security and safety OS for every organization. Our goal is to protect people and assets while ensuring privacy. The Product team at Verkada is responsible for driving our product vision and identifying opportunities for Verkada to grow and succeed as a business.
Access Control is a critical part of every organization’s day to day operations. Access control is ubiquitous and affects the day-to-day lives of billions of people around the world. We are all familiar with the act of badging into a building at work -- now imagine an organization with 100,000 people across thousands of doors. Verkada is on a journey to rethink Access Control through differentiated, easy-to-install hardware and intuitive, scalable software. As a product manager of the Access Control team, you will own products that enable facilities, security and business professionals to support millions of users in their interaction with buildings around the world.
