Are you looking to help lead one of the fastest growing startups in history? Samsara is an Internet of Things company valued at over $3B and growing at over 250% annually. We are looking for an ambitious, entrepreneurial person to help drive our fast-growing industrial businesses.
Working closely with a senior management team that previously built and exited a ~1B company, you'll drive cross-functional programs and lead new company initiatives such as addressing new market segments, developing new sales acceleration programs, and leading planning and analysis activities to help steer the company's exponential growth. This role provides broad exposure across functions and critical strategic initiatives, serving as an excellent entry point to Samsara with multiple progression paths and development opportunities. You will work to enable the industrial team to sell, drive customer acquisition initiatives, and build on-the ground resources required for your team to be successful. You will work with and leverage all corporate functions to deliver top performance in your markets. This role requires excellent data and analytical skills, entrepreneurialism, and leadership. Final title will be based on applicant's experience level.
As this is a multi-faceted role, we are seeking a highly versatile and well-rounded leader who can create and drive strategy as well as roll up their sleeves to clear obstacles and build pieces of the business themselves. We are looking for candidates with excellent analytical skills, strong writing and presentation skills, and a passion for working in customer-facing roles. A track record of ownership and impact are a must, and a quantitative or technical background is a big plus.
