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:
The Driver App and Mobile Infrastructure team is an integral part of our Fleet Applications / Connected Driver division. Our driver app serves over 100k drivers every day, and we’re excited to enter a new stage of growth and maturity as we scale 10x to 1M daily active users. We are both a user-facing feature team and an infrastructure team. Our user-facing features form the core driver experience upon which many other features (Routing, Docs, Messaging, Safety, Compliance) are built upon. Our team also builds a wide variety of infrastructure, including reusable UX components and design systems, SDKs, continuous integration systems, monitoring tools, and networking and persistence layer frameworks. The infrastructure we build is leveraged across multiple apps and business divisions (Fleet, Industrial, and Connected Sites), so our team’s impact across the company is far-reaching.
We use React Native, Typescript, Redux, and GraphQL for our mobile apps, and Golang for our backend. Direct experience with these technologies is not required. This position can be office based or fully remote.
In this role, you will:
- Collaborate with product, design, and other engineering teams to build new and innovative application experiences for our mobile apps.
- Build the next generation of UX design systems for our mobile apps.
- Streamline developer experience by improving the efficiency and resiliency of our continuous integration systems, monitoring tools, and core development platform.
- 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:
- Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science/Engineering or equivalent practical experience
- Has 4+ years of relevant industry experience in software development
- Strong programming/coding fundamentals
An ideal candidate also has:
- Has 2+ years of experience on full-stack or infrastructure-focused teams
- Has built production web applications using React or mobile applications using either Native or React Native frameworks
- Enjoys thinking about systems - their life cycles, edge cases, interactions, and failure modes
- Enjoys understanding customer needs and finding how to make their processes easier to manage
- Loves shipping features that are immediately used by our customers
- Seeks to iterate on new products based on customer feedback
