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 16 offices across three continents, 1,700+ full-time employees and 20,000+ customers across 70+ countries.

Overview

We are a small, dynamic team focused on building cloud-managed access control systems. Access Control is our second major product line. Our Access Control solution allows users to manage their doors, schedules, and user credentials from virtually anywhere on their laptop or phone.

We consider our team a startup within a startup, with a fair amount of ownership and autonomy. You’ll be working alongside a dynamic team of firmware, backend, and frontend engineers to develop this product line.

We are #10 on the LinkedIn Top Startups 2020 list and #4 on the Forbes America’s Best Startup Employers 2020. In October 2022, the company raised a $205 million Series D at a $3.2 billion post-money valuation and is backed by top-tier investors like Sequoia Capital, First Round, Meritech, Alkeon, Lightspeed, and Siemens (Next47).

Requirements

  • 5+ years of industry software engineering experience

  • Mastery of JavaScript: Scoping, closures, contexts, prototypes, classes, etc

Culture and Values

  • Growth mindset: As a fast-growing startup, every day brings new challenges and opportunities for growth, and we want you to grow with us!

Pay Disclosure

At Verkada, we want to attract and retain the best employees, and compensate them in a way that appropriately and fairly values their individual contribution to the company. With that in mind, we carefully consider a number of factors to determine the appropriate starting pay for an employee, including their primary work location and an assessment of a candidate’s skills and experience, as well as market demands and internal parity. This estimate can vary based on the factors described above, so the actual starting annual base salary may be above or below this range. This estimate is also just one component of Verkada’s total rewards package. A Verkada employee may be eligible for additional forms of compensation, depending on their role, including sales incentives, discretionary bonuses, and/or equity in the company in the form of Restricted Stock Units (RSUs).
