Samsara’s mission is to improve industrial efficiency, safety, and quality at a massive scale, through the use of sensors and software. Our suite of IoT products and software platform brings the benefits of sensor data to traditional industries like transportation, food and beverage distribution, construction, state and local government, and K-12 education. We help our customers transport food, medicine, and other goods safely across the country, monitor deliveries for unsafe conditions, and help fleet managers improve the efficiency of their operations.
Samsara’s Product Design team is responsible for crafting user-friendly features, workflows, and interfaces that our customers use every day to run their operations.

We also build design systems that underpin all our products to ensure a consistent and cohesive user experience.
We’re looking for an experienced product design manager who will help to build out an already high-caliber group of designers and help shape the product experience for all our customers.
