About Us

Our Mission

To improve the safety, efficiency, and quality of our customers’ operations with connected sensors and software.

Our Story

We believe that sensor data will increase the safety and efficiency of physical operations, and that new technologies will bring an explosion of sensors into environments where they’ve never been possible before.

Samsara’s mission is to bring the benefits of sensor data to the organizations that drive our economy—from transportation and logistics to construction, food production, energy, and manufacturing—and to improve the safety, efficiency, and quality of their operations.

Samsara was founded in 2015 by Sanjit Biswas and John Bicket. Sanjit and John previously co-founded Meraki, the cloud networking leader that was born out of their PhD research at MIT and grew to support tens of thousands of customers worldwide. Meraki was acquired by Cisco Systems for $1.2 billion, and under Sanjit and John’s continued leadership became one of Cisco’s fastest-growing businesses.

In founding Samsara, Sanjit and John bring their experience—from developing enterprise-grade hardware and cloud software to building a global, customer-focused technology organization—to the world of connected operations.
