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:

Are you a talented software engineer that is excited to learn about business and contribute to the growth of an innovative IoT startup? We’re looking for a Growth Engineer who can help us build business-critical software that drives customer acquisition, accelerates top-of-funnel conversion and enables our Sales and Marketing teams to scale.

As Growth Engineers we ask questions like “what can we build to improve gross margins?” and “how can we build best-in-class e-commerce experiences?” We then build, test and measure the impact of the experiments we run. We appreciate software engineers who are quick to pick up new frameworks/tools and are thoughtful about building quickly while being mindful of technical debt. The software we build has a direct impact on both revenue and our bottom line.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work the entire stack -- from how you architect and deploy to how you test the code you write. We use Python for our backends, Javascript (Vue) for our frontends and AWS to manage our infrastructure. Our team believes deeply in solving hard business problems with software, data, and exceptional cross-team collaboration.

In this role, you will:

  • Leverage data to understand our customers and our funnel in depth, identify areas of opportunity and execute projects to drive revenue, customer growth, retention, and/or engagement
  • Build customer-facing products using a combination of custom frontends, Cloud applications, backend services, scripts, etc.
  • Collaborate with marketing and sales operations teams to implement growth initiatives
  • Lead engineering discussions and write thoughtful documentation and unit tests

Minimum requirements for this role:

  • 2+ years of experience working in a full stack, API engineering or application services role
  • Experience with Python and/or Javascript (Vue)
  • Knowledgeable about modern web technologies and testing frameworks
  • Excellent analytical skills
  • Ability to partner with different parts of the organization to identify and solve major business problems
  • Desire to learn about the business side of a startup
  • B.S., M.S. degree (or higher) in Computer Science or related technical experience.

An ideal candidate also has:

  • 2+ years of experience on a Growth team
  • Experience using Vue in production web applications
  • Knowledge of any of the following tools: Contentful, Stripe, or similar products

Benefits

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.
