About the role:

Are you a talented software engineer that is excited to learn about business and contribute to the growth of an innovative IoT startup? We’re looking for a Growth Engineer who can help us build all of our e-commerce and self-service revenue products at Samsara. 

As Growth Engineers we ask questions like “what can we build to improve gross margins?” and “how can we build best-in-class e-commerce experiences?” We then build, test and measure the impact of the experiments we run. We appreciate software engineers who are quick to pick up new frameworks/tools and are thoughtful about building quickly while being mindful of technical debt. The software we build has a direct impact on both revenue and our bottom line. 

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work the entire stack -- from how you architect and deploy to how you test the code you write. We use Python for our backends, Javascript (Vue) for our frontends and AWS to manage our infrastructure. Our team believes deeply in solving hard business problems with software, data, and exceptional cross-team collaboration.

In this role, you will: 

  • Leverage data to understand our customers and our funnel in depth, identify areas of opportunity and execute projects to drive revenue, customer growth, retention, and/or engagement
  • Build customer-facing e-commerce products from the ground up using a combination of custom frontends, Cloud applications, backend services, scripts, etc.
  • Collaborate with marketing, sales operations and product teams to implement growth initiatives
  • Lead engineering discussions and write thoughtful documentation and unit tests
  • Champion, role model, and embed Samsara’s cultural principles (Focus on Customer Success, Build for the Long Term, Adopt a Growth Mindset, Be Inclusive, Win as a Team) as we scale globally and across new offices  

Minimum requirements for the role:

  • Experience working or interning in a full stack, API engineering or application services role
  • Experience with Python and/or Javascript (Vue)
  • Knowledgeable about modern web technologies and testing frameworks
  • Excellent analytical skills
  • Ability to partner with different parts of the organization to identify and solve major business problems
  • Desire to learn about the business side of a startup
  • B.S., M.S. degree (or higher) in Computer Science or related technical experience.

An ideal candidate also has:

  • 1+ years of experience on a Growth/E-commerce team
  • Experience using Vue in production web applications
  • Experience using AWS services: ElasticBeanstalk, Lambda, CloudFront
  • Knowledge of any of the following tools: Stripe, Contentful, or similar products

About Samsara

About Breakthroughs in semiconductors are making sensors smaller and radically cheaper, and wireless Internet connectivity is becoming ubiquitous. Yet traditional enterprise-scale sensor systems still require complex infrastructure, from hard-wired networks to servers, middleware, and custom code. As a result, sensor projects can take months — if not years — to bring online. Samsara disrupts the traditional sensor model with an integrated, software-centric solution. Our products combine plug-and-play sensors, wireless connectivity, and rich cloud-hosted software, all tightly-integrated for simple deployment. Samsara was founded in early 2015 by Sanjit Biswas and John Bicket. Sanjit and John previously co-founded Meraki, the cloud networking leader. Meraki was acquired by Cisco for $1.2 billion in 2012, and under Sanjit and John's continued leadership became one of Cisco’s fastest growing businesses. Samsara’s team includes veteran executives and technical leaders from companies including Google, Apple, and Meraki, who bring experience in big data, cloud software, and hardware design. In Sanskrit, "Samsara" is the eternal cycle of life and rebirth.
