We're proud to announce that for the fourth year in a row, Verkada has been named a LinkedIn Top Startup! This recognition is a testament not only to our exponential growth, but also to our incredible team and culture.
Four factors play a role in determining whether a startup makes LinkedIn's Top Startup list: hypergrowth in the company's headcount; high engagement with the company on LinkedIn; high interest in the company's posted jobs; and an enviable ability to lure talent away from employers on LinkedIn's Top Companies lists.
We’re honored to join LinkedIn’s list again this year and believe our people and programs will continue to set us apart in the years to come. Here’s why:
Verkada Is Growing And Hiring Globally
Earlier this month, we announced a $205 million Series D fundraise, which will help us achieve our vision of building the operating system for the physical world. We're continuing to build and grow the team that's delivering real value to its 13,000+ customers across the globe.
We are dedicated to creating a work environment where employees can grow and thrive as professionals and individuals, and a key component has been our in-office culture. Our employees enjoy the collaboration and hands-on learning they get within their teams, especially at the entry level, when mentorship plays a critical role in career development.
"When you're in the office, you definitely have more of a networking connection with your peers and future mentors. I think it helps remove the gap for any learning curves."
Beyond the intangible benefits of being in-office, we have daily lunch on-site, an annual stipend for career development programs, and fertility benefits.
We also promote from within and encourage internal mobility between teams and regions, which is motivational for employees who want access to interesting new experiences and learning opportunities.
Verkada Communities Embrace Diverse Interests
Verkada is committed to making our workplace one where everyone feels a sense of belonging. We believe that when people feel they belong, they’re free to be more innovative, happy and successful. One of the ways we foster spaces to elevate all voices, raise awareness around issues that affect the employee experience, and create a healthier workplace is through our employee Communities. Our current Verkada Communities include Women at Verkada, Pride at Verkada, Multicultural Community at Verkada, Parents at Verkada, Verkada Moves (focused on employee relocation), Verkada Fit, Fully Booked at Verkada and Verkada Adventurers.
