Senior Legal Project Manager

Samsara

  • Full Time

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: 

  • #2 in the Financial Times’ Fastest Growing Companies in Americas list 2021
  • Named as a Best Place to Work in Built In 2022 
  • #19 in the Forbes Cloud 100 2021  
  • IoT Analytics Company of the Year in 2022’s IoT Breakthrough Winners 
  • Forbes Advisor named us the Best Solution for Large Companies – Fleet management software for 2022!

We're driving change in industries that are yet to fully embrace digital transformation. Physical operations make up a massive slice of the global economy but haven’t benefited from innovation and actionable information in the way that other sectors have. The potential for scale and impact is huge.

In this role, you will help build the organizational backbone for the global Legal Team by managing legal operations initiatives and supporting projects across a range of legal issues (including intellectual property, transactional, litigation, corporate, product, privacy and employment matters). You are eager to join a team that cultivates camaraderie, works cross-functionally with teams across Samsara, and is a key driver of Samsara’s business. You will be a legal ambassador to the company and in a position to help drive team direction and culture.

You must be extremely organized, resourceful, and detail-oriented. You also must be excited to work across an array of projects and tasks, from researching complex legal issues to organizing meetings. No project is too daunting and no task is too small. Equipped with your legal eagle eye for details, ability to deliver information in a clear and concise way, and reserves of energy and self-motivation, you’re excited to join us and contribute to a dynamic company and team.
