Who we are

Samsara (NYSE: IOT) is the pioneer of the Connected Operations Cloud, which allows businesses that depend on physical operations to harness IoT (Internet of Things) data to develop actionable business insights and improve their operations. Founded in San Francisco in 2015, we now employ more than 1,800 people globally and have over 1.5 million active devices. Samsara also went public in December 2021 and we’re just getting started. 

Recent awards we’ve won include: 

  • #2 in the Financial Times’ Fastest Growing Companies in Americas list 2021
  • Named as a Best Place to Work in Built In 2022 
  • #19 in the Forbes Cloud 100 2021  
  • IoT Analytics Company of the Year in 2022’s IoT Breakthrough Winners 
  • Forbes Advisor named us the Best Solution for Large Companies - Fleet management software for 2022!

We're driving change in industries that are yet to fully embrace digital transformation. Physical operations make up a massive slice of the global economy but haven’t benefited from innovation and actionable information in the way that other sectors have. The potential for scale and impact is huge.

About the role:

Samsara is seeking an experienced Senior Software Engineer - Frontend Infrastructure to join the Platform UX team. This role can be office-based or fully remote in the US and Canada.

The team’s goal is to ensure that Samsara consistently and efficiently delivers polished, high quality user experiences across all product groups. 

We achieve this by:

  • Developing tools that improve frontend development productivity and minimize developer friction.
  • Building, maintaining, and improving core customer-facing features that enable and support all product groups.
  • Implementing foundational product design & design system concepts for reuse across the platform.

Our frontend stack is based on Typescript, React and PostCSS. We use tools like Webpack, Storybook and Jest. On the backend we use Golang to build our GraphQL API. Previous experience with some of these is desired, but experience with all of these is not required.

In this role, you will: 

  • Enhance tools and establish patterns to improve developer productivity with projects like optimizing live-updating GraphQL subscriptions, reducing bundle size, and decreasing frontend build time
  • Leverage and enhance Samsara’s design system to improve the speed and consistency of our designers and engineers, ultimately raising the quality of the product for our customers
  • Research and deeply understand the needs of our customers (both internal and external)
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with Design, Product, Customer Success, and Engineering stakeholders to create sustained and aligned impact
  • Champion, role model, and embed Samsara’s cultural principles (Focus on Customer Success, Build for the Long Term, Adopt a Growth Mindset, Be Inclusive, Win as a Team) as we scale globally and across new offices

Minimum requirements for the role:

  • 4+ years of relevant industry experience in software engineering
  • Strong programming fundamentals
  • Experience working on large-scale enterprise software applications
  • Experience working in frontend ecosystems

An ideal candidate also has:

  • Experience working on frontend developer tooling
  • Experience working on design systems
  • Experience conducting user research and integrating feedback into engineering plans
  • A deep understanding of Javascript/Typescript, React, CSS, and patterns for state management
