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.
The Role
We are looking for software engineers who thrive in a startup culture working alongside teammates to launch products that will be utilized by customers across the globe. As part of the Software Engineering team, you’ll have ownership of one or more projects on various teams including backend/infrastructure, mobile, or frontend/UI. You will work across the full software stack and collaborate cross functionally to build the latest iterations of Verkada’s flagship software enabling our best-in-class security systems.

      • Design, develop, test, deploy, maintain and improve the software.


    • MS/PhD in Computer Science, something similar or equivalent work experience. 
    • 2+ internships in software engineering.
    • Mastery of at least one practical programming language.
    • 1+ years of work or research experience with current neural net frameworks.
    • Experience working in an agile team software development environment.
    • Work experience with: python, AWS, HTTP API design and Flask.
    • Can create traditional computer vision algorithms.
    • Have trained deep learning networks using TensorFlow, Keras, Caffe, or something similar.
    • In-depth understanding of data structures and architecture.
About our team
Behind the scenes, we’re a team of computer scientists, hardware engineers and experienced founders who saw a chance to make a real impact. We’re united by the challenge of building beautiful products, designed for real people—and by our commitment to using technology responsibly. We believe keeping data private and secure is core to our safety as individuals, businesses and communities and we put great care into building systems that embody our values as people. Likewise, many of Silicon Valley’s top investors believe in us: we’re backed by Sequoia Capital, FirstRound, Meritech and Siemens (Next47).
