Job Candidate FAQ
- Are work hours flexible and/or can I work remote?Big decisions get made by team members working face-to-face at the office. If you're not here, at some point you'll start missing out. Our team members come from a wide range of backgrounds and, frankly, we wouldn't be human if we didn't have responsibilities outside of work. The majority of us have taken remote days when needed and sometimes we start the day later and end later, or vice versa. It’s an understanding between you and your manager and communication on this is key in maintaining great team chemistry.
- The product looks mature to me. How much impact can I really have at this point?You can have a tremendous amount of impact at Verkada—and we'll push you to. Our engineering team is 25 people as of August 2019. We work with a wide range of software and hardware technologies, so most facets of our product are managed by teams of just 2–3 people. For a zillion reasons we're excited to—and must—grow our team. If you join us at any point in the next two years, you'll be building the foundation of the business.
- How much mentorship will I receive? Will I be expected to mentor others?Our work culture is highly collaborative. Whether your role is technical, or sales-focused, or focused elsewhere, it's safe to assume that your questions will be answered quickly—and that you'll be asked a lot of questions, too. Beyond social norms, we're in the early stages of rolling out a formal mentorship program. Our goal is to create a fantastic environment for self-starters to begin their careers, and for people with more experience to step into a larger role for the first time.
- I have ethical issues with surveillance. How do I know that Verkada won't turn into The Man?We're not blind to history. The ability to surveil is ripe for abuse. But security cameras, like all technologies, are designed, built, used, and regulated by people. On this topic, actions are louder than words, so here are some examples of how we're taking our responsibility seriously: Our camera feeds use end-to-end encryption, an industry first; we're building tools that log data access and create audit trails, so accountability is baked into the core of the product; and we're building view modes that mask faces and identities to control access to sensitive information. Much more to come.
- Job security is important to me—and I know startups are risky. What risks does Verkada face?You're right—startups aren't cakewalks. On the positive side, we have clear product/market fit, our year-over-year sales growth is well over 100%, and we're backed by a group of reputable and enthusiastic investors. On the other hand, the economy will enter recession eventually and, like all growing industries, ours will face increased regulation over time. ...But we’re speculating here. In truth, we have a ton of momentum.
