About the role: 

Founded in San Francisco six years ago, we’ve come a long way since then. We now employ over 1,600 people globally and have over a million devices out in the field. Last year, we hit a valuation of $5.4 billion during our series F funding round. 

We're one of the fastest growing companies to come out of Silicon Valley in recent years, too – we've hit $300m ARR faster than Slack, Workday, Snowflake and Twilio. Our products offer solutions to real world problems, allowing us to tap into markets that simply didn't exist a few years ago.

Recent awards we’ve won include: 

  • #2 in the Financial Times’ Fastest Growing Companies in Americas list 
  • #19 in the Forbes Cloud 100 
  • Top 4 place in LinkedIn’s Top Startups awards for 2 years running
