Who We Are
Verkada is the leader in integrated cloud-managed enterprise building security. Verkada combines our cloud-managed software platform with hardware powered by edge-based processing to provide customers with a real-time view into every part of their organization. Designed with simplicity in mind, Verkada’s video security cameras, access control and environmental sensors natively integrate with our platform and are virtually effortless to install, maintain, and manage across hundreds of sites. Verkada protects more than 6,000 organizations, including more than 30+ of the Fortune 500.

Overview
As a member of our Strategic Finance team, you will play a critical role in driving the financial projections, insights, and strategy that enable the company to scale successfully. Strategic Finance is an excellent platform to learn the key drivers of a business, how to budget and forecast for a fast-growing and complex business, and how to implement operational changes at scale. As an Analyst, you will support the team in a wide variety of functions, including capital raising efforts, lender engagement, financial budgeting & forecasting, strategic problem-solving, and spend management.

Responsibilities

  • Financial planning & strategy: help drive our financial planning processes and adapt the underlying financial forecast model for the growing complexity of the business
  • Reporting: help develop and track critical financial and operating reporting metrics for the Executive team and others, and communicate actionable insights to relevant stakeholders.
  • Functional partnership: be a strategic partner for specific departments to help solve complex problems and be the main point of contact for headcount & budget planning.
  • Fundraising: help manage and support capital raise activities and engagement with investors and lenders.
  • Spend management: work closely with People Ops to manage our compensation and offer processes, and with different departments to evaluate and manage third-party vendor spend.
  • Since we’re still in scrappy startup mode, there’s a lot of rolling up your sleeves and getting into the weeds to drive direct impact on a daily basis. We knock out today’s problems while also balancing our need to build for the long-term.
  • You’ll be working in our key systems (e.g. Netsuite, Salesforce) and Google Sheets / Excel on a daily basis, while also working cross-functionally with stakeholders and department heads across the organization to help solve complex problems and build sustainable processes.

Requirements

  • Raw smarts: we are looking for people with strong business acumen who can approach complex problems and solve them from start to finish.
  • Strong analytical skills: you have a data-driven mentality and high attention to detail; you are excited to dig through data to get actionable insights. Excel skills are a must; SQL / Looker experience is a plus.
  • Excellent modeling skills: you have strong modeling intuition, and a good understanding of how to bring a modeling framework to complicated problems. Strong understanding of accounting and financial concepts is a plus.
  • Cross-functional communication: you’ll need to connect and partner with stakeholders ranging from sales reps to software engineers to effectively implement our financial strategy and processes. Strong written and verbal communication skills are a must.
  • Flexibility: you are comfortable working in a fast-paced startup environment that will require you to manage competing priorities, pivot quickly and often, and continually build new processes as the company scales.
  • 1-2+ years of professional experience, ideally in investment banking, consulting, private equity, venture capital, or a high-growth startup.

Verkada is an equal opportunity employer. We strive to be a welcoming place for everyone, and we do our best to make sure all people feel supported and connected at work. A big part of that effort is support for members and allies of our internal communities like Women at Verkada, Pride at Verkada, Multicultural at Verkada and Parents at Verkada.
