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

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

The potential for scale and impact is huge.
