Our team has raised over $530M from Andreessen Horowitz, General Catalyst, Tiger Global, and Dragoneer.
Samsara is growing fast… really, really fast! To support our growth, we are standing up a new Data Science team to tackle some of Samsara’s most pressing business problems with a data-first mindset. Members of the team will work closely with our leadership in product and engineering, analyzing billions of rows of IoT sensor to continue improving our products and customer experience. Come help us build a new function to help Samsara scale!
The Data Scientist will be a core technical contributor to the team with deep expertise in building analytical models to help answer pressing business questions. The Data Scientist will work closely with both technical and business leadership for the product or corporate function they are aligned to, translate business problems into concrete quantitative analysis, and iterate on the output with stakeholders.
The Data Scientist will work on:
Leveraging their language of choice (e.g., SQL, Python) to shape and structure data sets for analysis
Building analytical models to identify patterns, anomalies, and root causes (e.g., analyzing sensor temperatures to spot unhealthy devices)
Meeting with technical and non-technical stakeholders to understand data structures and business priorities
Creating dashboard and other summary output to support decision-making from operational and leadership teams
Champion, role model, and embed Samsara’s cultural principles (Obsess Over the Customer, Build for the Long Term, Growth Mindset) as we scale globally and across new offices
An ideal candidate has:
BA / MS / PhD or equivalent coursework in quantitative discipline (e.g., Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Economics, etc.)
