Who We Are

Samsara, founded in 2015, is a leader in Industrial IoT and our mission is to increase the efficiency, safety, and sustainability of the operations that power our economy. Our solutions combine hardware and software to bring real-time visibility, analytics, and AI to operations across various industries. Samsara’s fast-growing team is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in San Jose, Atlanta, and London. Our team has raised $930M from Andreessen Horowitz, General Catalyst, Tiger Global, Dragoneer, AllianceBernstein Holding LP, Franklin Templeton, General Atlantic, Sands Capital Management and Warburg Pincus LLC.

At Samsara, we welcome all. All sizes, colors, cultures, sexes, beliefs, religions, ages, people. We depend on the unique approaches of our team members to help us solve complex problems. We are committed to increasing diversity across our team and ensuring that Samsara is a place where people from all backgrounds can make an impact.

About the Role

Help us lay the groundwork for Samsara’s newest product family, “Connected Sites,” focused on enhancing workplace safety and productivity to benefit people working in industrial environments. Our first product is an AI-enhanced camera system; our customers use our product to ask questions such as, “was everyone nearby this piece of equipment wearing an orange safety vest?” and “when was this warehouse rack last used?”

As a Senior Full Stack Engineer on Connected Sites, you will work on the mobile application (React Native) and web application (React) that our customers use for analyzing and viewing their video streams. You’ll join a small product engineering team of 4; expect to wear many hats and become very familiar with the product and sales side of the business.

In this role, you will be building:

  • A dynamic UI for exploring live and historical video data and events
  • Video streaming features/enhancements for our mobile and web applications
  • Site management and mapping features for our mobile application
  • Search features in the web application and mobile application

We use Golang for our backend, Typescript and React for our web client, GraphQL to fetch data from our backend, and React Native for our mobile app. Direct experience with these technologies is not required.

An ideal candidate has:

  • Has 4+ years of relevant industry experience in software development
  • Is interested in working on an early stage venture
  • Enjoys understanding our users and what would make their day to day processes easier to manage
  • Is interested in owning and building out new features end to end
  • Can work across the entire stack
  • Enjoys working collaboratively with developers of different focuses (infra, firmware, vision, etc)
  • Experience working with React or Typescript is a plus


Working at Samsara has its perks: for all global employees, we provide private medical and dental insurance plus growth and development opportunities, as well as regular virtual team and company events. In the US we offer flexible vacation time, EMEA employees receive 25 vacation days plus national bank holidays. Post-COVID we’ll be back in our global offices with numerous in-office perks.

Regarding COVID-19

With the spread of COVID-19, Samsara's global offices will remain closed until further notice with the exception of employees that require access to hardware and lab equipment.

Our primary concern is for the health and well-being of our employees as well as candidates. We have transitioned all interviews and onboarding to be conducted virtually via Zoom video conferencing. Employees are also able to work from countries and states where Samsara is a registered entity through June 2021. All employees are expected to return to our offices when they reopen with the exception of field-based roles.
