Definitely NOT. The Google Play store mentions in a footnote that it will only work on T-Mobile & AT&T.

My name's Harold and I'm a flashaholic....

Isn't that the Google Edition? That will not work on Verizon. But I believe the OP is asking about the Developer edition.

It could still work, we'd need someone to test. The M7 developer edition supported T-Mobile but only on 3G/FauxG. But flashing the T-Mobile radio to it enabled LTE connectivity.

I contacted HTC yesterday. The rep told me that both the Unlocked (sim unlocked) and Developer models will operate on Verizon.

i figured id be the guinea pig and since i have patience issues i ordered one today to try it myself.
i ordered by phone due to checkout issues and the rep said theres no reason it shouldnt work
worst case scenario i guess is i send it back

I was under the impression the Dev edition was GSM only.
