Samsara builds disruptive products that help customers improve efficiency at a massive scale. And it’s the people—bright, passionate, independent thinkers—who make that innovation and impact possible.
Our team is growing fast, and actively hiring in many departments.
Samsara was created from the idea that the better an environment or system is understood, the more efficient it can be.
This thinking is applicable to a vast array of industries, from food and vaccine production to transportation, energy, and healthcare.
Samsara helps customers harness sensor data to understand their physical world, empowering them to operate more efficiently - from conserving energy to improving the delivery of food and medicine, using natural resources more effectively, and improving the quality of their products and services.
Samsara’s team is led by proven management and technical leaders, including veterans of Google, Apple, and Meraki.
Samsara was started by the co-founders of Meraki, the cloud-networking startup that they led through to acquisition by Cisco for $1.2 billion. Samsara is funded by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, and is recognized for innovation in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and The Washington Post.
Samsara is a place where people roll up their sleeves to get things done. We are a software-centric company, but also operate in the physical world, manufacturing hardware devices, working with customers on-site, and working closely with customers to deeply understand their problems and build products that will solve them. We like to move fast, get our hands dirty, and stay focused on making an immediate impact.
Life at Samsara
Located in San Francisco’s sunny Mission district, our office is within short walking distance to some of the best food, coffee, and culture that the city has to offer.
Healthy catered lunches and a fully stocked kitchen keep our team fueled, and happy hours, team dinners, and activities get us away from our desks when we need it.
We believe in building a team for the long term, and invest in our employees so that they can be with us for years to come. We pay competitive salaries, provide full health care coverage with premium plans, health benefits, offer 401k matching, and give stock options to all employees. We provide flexible PTO and family leave so that employees can sustain their energy and creativity.
