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.

As a member of our engineering team, you will create the look and feel of how customers interact with custom-made hardware, improve Verkada's web-based assets, and contextualize a tremendous amount of data to be easily understandable to the end user. If the thought of modernizing an old industry while making the world safer and more secure appeals to you, we want to hear from you.
