About Us

Our Mission

To increase the efficiency, safety, and sustainability of the operations that power our economy.

Our Story

We believe that inexpensive wireless data, AI, and an explosion in camera technology has made it easier for organizations of all types to gather data in ways not possible before. But that data is disconnected, challenging to adopt, and complex to analyze. We want to change that.

Samsara is a leader in IoT for Operations. Our mission is to increase the efficiency, safety, and sustainability of the operations that power our economy.

Our portfolio of complete Internet of Things solutions combine hardware and software to bring real-time visibility, analytics, and AI to operations. We serve over 10,000 customers across diverse sizes and industries, from transportation and logistics to field services, food production, energy, construction, local governments, and manufacturing.

Samsara was founded in 2015 by the co-founders of Meraki (now part of Cisco Systems), the cloud-managed networking leader that powers over 2 million networks worldwide. Samsara’s fast-growing team of 1,200 employees is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in San Jose, Atlanta, and London. Our team has raised over $230M from Andreessen Horowitz and General Catalyst.
