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.

The Team

Have you ever wondered what would happen to an ext4 filesystem when random bits are written to superblock fields? So did we, so we wrote an error injection framework to test how the filesystem would recover from corruption upon mounting. We obsess over storage technologies such as the Linux MMC driver, ext4 and ubifs filesystems, and iSCSI to establish a foundation to build the most reliable security cameras.

What do you call a security camera that can’t store video? A paperweight. That’s why engineers that push the limits of reliability on our security camera storage are highly valued at Verkada. We are responsible for managing more than 230 petabytes of storage space on nearly 1 million devices and are building the next generation systems that will allow the camera fleet to scale to the next order of magnitude. 

If you are excited to solve the puzzle of remotely debugging one-in-a-million bugs, and you are motivated by the potential for making a massive impact on the customer experience; then you will thrive on the Camera Storage Team!

Responsibilities:

  • Develop and maintain the camera storage component.
  • Design and implement a robust storage system in both camera firmware and cloud, with a focus on stream recording and playback usage patterns. 
  • Work with hardware team and storage vendor to develop the next generation of camera storage systems.
  • Design new flash and streaming-friendly file systems.

Requirements: 

  • BS/MS in Computer Science (or similar degree). 
  • 5+ years of experience working on system development as a Software Engineer.
  • Strong C programming skills, with the ability to write complex systems using clean and concise code.
  • Familiarity with file system development, storage layout, and memory management is a huge plus.
  • Experience with Linux kernel development is a big plus.
  • Experience working with flash specific storage systems is a big plus.

Perks & Benefits: 

  • Generous company paid medical, dental & vision insurance coverage 
  • Unlimited paid time off & 11 companywide paid holidays 
  • Wellness allowance 
  • Commuter benefits 
  • Healthy lunches and dinners provided daily
  • Generous paid parental leave policy & fertility benefits
