Requirements
  • Deep experience in compensation NOT required: you must be passionate about solving compensation as a thorny analytical and human problem with no right answer (but many wrong ones!). Comfort with ambiguity is a must. Experience in Investment Banking or Management Consulting strongly preferred
  • Raw smarts: we are looking for people with strong business acumen who can approach complex problems and solve them from start to finish
  • High attention to detail: at Verkada, we pride ourselves on first principles thinking and sweating the details as the keys to business results. This leader should excel in these areas and set a standard for others
  • Excellent analytics skills: you have a data-driven mentality; you are excited to dig through data to drive evidence-based discussions and decision-making
  • Flexibility: you are comfortable working in a fast-paced startup environment that will require you to manage competing priorities, pivot quickly and often, mentor brilliant (but inexperienced) talent junior in their career, and continually build new processes as the company scales
Responsibilities
  • Compensation strategy & planning: own and refine Verkada's global compensation strategy for the company as the business scales; develop and document compensation guidelines, policies and ongoing training programs
  • Market analysis: use market intelligence and data to ensure the market competitiveness of our cash pay, equity pay and benefits for our roles globally during our phase of rapid growth. This requires strong ability to source compensation data and bring it together in a way that makes sense
  • Functional partnership: partner with Finance, People Partners, Recruiters, Hiring Managers, and Executives on pay decisions, compensation process & policies, and job evaluation
  • Workflow management: build tools and processes to streamline all compensation workflows, from job posting to internal approvals to offer signature
  • Reporting: help develop and track critical compensation reporting metrics for the Executive team and managers
  • Get sh
  • T done: 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. We accomplish this through hard work, being clear on what's worth tackling and what's not, and ensuring a high talent bar
