Who we are

Samsara (NYSE: IOT) is the pioneer of the Connected Operations Cloud, which allows businesses that depend on physical operations to harness IoT (Internet of Things) data to develop actionable business insights and improve their operations. Founded in San Francisco in 2015, we now employ more than 1,800 people globally and have over 1.5 million active devices. Samsara also went public in December 2021 and we’re just getting started. 

Recent awards we’ve won include:

We're driving change in industries that are yet to fully embrace digital transformation.

The potential for scale and impact is huge.

About the role:

Samsara’s Product team works to bring our disruptive IoT technology to market, accelerating the adoption of sensor data to improve industrial efficiency at a massive scale. As a member of the Product team, you’ll be responsible for the end-to-end success of new and existing products and features that delight our customers and further Samsara’s vision. Samsara’s approach to product management is rooted in a deep understanding of the customer. You’ll learn about our customers’ operations, identify the most meaningful problems that we could solve for them, and develop a product vision that maximizes the impact Samsara can make on the market. 

Vehicle Telematics is one of our largest revenue generating products and telematics devices and the data we acquire from them create the foundation for numerous Fleet user experiences across Samsara’s portfolio. As these devices, their related accessories, and the APIs that serve vehicle data become a core platform element that numerous teams rely on, we are looking for a seasoned Product leader to drive the firmware and user experience roadmaps to help our customer make the most of vehicle telematics and will fuel the next chapter of Samsara’s growth.

In this role, you’ll work to build and execute on a roadmap of customer-focused Devices, Diagnostics and Data solutions, partner with our Hardware, Firmware and Software engineering teams, and be responsible for new additions to the Telematics portfolio that can increase revenue and adoption.

  • Hire, develop and lead an inclusive, engaged, and high performing team of product managers

Minimum requirements for the role:

  • Strong technical understanding, ability to grasp technical concepts and establish credibility with engineers
  • Bias-to-action and hands-on experience delivering business results. You’re not afraid to get your hands dirty writing a spec or jumping on a customer call, but can also mentor others to do the same
  • Excellent communication skills. Must be comfortable presenting to customers and internal audiences
  • Ability to drive teams of diverse backgrounds to ship features on aggressive timelines
  • At least ten years of job experience, in relevant product, technical or business roles
