We're building an Internet of Things (IoT) platform that makes it easy for companies to deploy a complete sensor solution in minutes.

Our primary initial use case has been fleet management. For example, we work with a company delivering hundreds of thousands of school lunches across the country. They have wireless temperate monitors in the back of the trucks to check everything is being refrigerated and can use our platform to easily see instant analytics.

Why join us?
  • Our CEO and CTO previously founded Meraki — We were founded two years ago, by Jon Bicket and Sanjit Biswas, who previously founded Meraki which was acquired by Cisco for $1.2 billion. They stayed at Cisco and grew the company from $100 - $120m in annual revenue, through to $500m in revenue.

  • We're riding a powerful and important trend — Sensors are becoming really cheap and wireless technology is becoming low cast and easily available. Our vision is to allow anyone to have the kind of powerful sensor systems you see today in sci-fi movies like The Martian.

  • This is a great time to join us — Right now is a great time to join as you'll be getting in at an early stage, just as we're hitting a hyper scale phase. This will be great for your career advancement, as it was for the early employees at Meraki who fast tracked their careers by quickly become team leads and directors as the company grew.

  • We're focused on building a great company and culture — Our executive team has worked together for almost a decade and we're putting a lot of thought into building a great work environment and culture.

  • We have real paying customers who love our solution — In San Fransico, we've been deployed by Bowers who run corporate shuttle services for companies including Google. We've also been deployed with the San Jose Water district, who signed a large contract, to use our solution for monitoring all remote pump stations.

Technical Challenges

We're working on two big scaling challenges right now:

  1. Dealing with a number of sensor devices and data processing.
  2. Making large customer deployments and building what we need to make those successful.

At Samsara you'll get an opportunity to work on everything from the low level challenges of working with the devices and e.g. deploying 200 dashcams and making video uploads automatically, up to the UI challenges of visualizing the data in an effective way for our customers.

On the application side, our engineering teams are prototyping things very quickly, which gives you lots of opportunities to take ownership and have real product impact.
