About the role:

The Developer Ecosystem team is responsible for maintaining and enhancing Samsara’s public API, webhooks, data connectors and app marketplace. In this role, you will help scale our systems and help raise the bar of our engineering team.

The public API serves more than 200 million requests a day and is a key component of the Samsara Platform. Our customers’ operations depend on our API being up and responding quickly.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will design and implement some of the most critical aspects of our platform. You’ll drive the evolution of our systems to support our tremendous growth. You’ll make our systems even more efficient, fault tolerant, resilient, and performant. You will help define the architecture and implementation of increasingly complex features and services as we expand the capability of our platform.


You should apply if:
  • You want to impact the industries that run our world: The software, firmware, and hardware you build will result in real-world impact—helping to keep the lights on, get food into grocery stores, and most importantly, ensure workers return home safely.
  • You want to build for scale: With over 2.3 million IoT devices deployed to our global customers, you will work on a range of new and mature technologies driving scalable innovation for customers across industries driving the world's physical operations.
  • You are a life-long learner: We have ambitious goals. Every Samsarian has a growth mindset as we work with a wide range of technologies, challenges, and customers that push us to learn on the go.
  • You believe customers are more than a number: Samsara engineers enjoy a rare closeness to the end user and you will have the opportunity to participate in customer interviews, collaborate with customer success and product managers, and use metrics to ensure our work is translating into better customer outcomes.
  • You are a team player: Working on our Samsara Engineering teams requires a mix of independent effort and collaboration. Motivated by our mission, we’re all racing toward our connected operations vision, and we intend to win—together.
