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

  • 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 a Senior Software Engineer to join the Connected Apps product group, which is responsible for building apps and features that are focused on our customers’ mobile device experience.

We’re expanding into new markets and rapidly growing our team of mobile and full-stack experts.

  • Often lead the planning and implementation of challenging technical projects
  • Build full-stack features that drive the growth of our product and business, and make customers happy

  • 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

  • 4+ years of experience building customer-facing applications
  • 2+ years building iOS and/or Android applications
  • Strong programming/coding fundamentals
  • Excellent written and verbal technical communication skills

  • Adaptability to changing needs and requirements

An ideal candidate also has:

  • Experience with React or React Native
  • Highly competent in applying industry best practices such as agile methodologies, continuous integration, and unit testing
  • Experience with microservice architectures
  • Enjoys understanding users and what would make their day-to-day processes easier
  • Loves the challenge of working in a fast-paced environment
  • Loves shipping high-quality features that are immediately used by our customers
