Demographic Questions (US, EMEA, Mexico, Canada)

Diversity is critical at Samsara.  Creating a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace is an important part of our mission that fosters greater creativity, innovation, and connection to the communities we serve.  And we will not compromise ​to the detriment of that mission.  So whatever your size, color, culture, gender, beliefs, religion, or age, know that you are welcome here.  It is what makes you unique that makes Samsara stronger.    

That mission starts here by building a robust, diverse talent pool across every team at Samsara.  Below is a set of demographic questions for you to review.  While your decision to provide demographic information is entirely yours, please know that we use the data that we collect internally to better track against our mission of creating a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace.  

Your responses will not be associated with your specific application and will not in any way be used in your specific hiring process.  The responses will also be anonymized and aggregated to help us comply with regulatory requirements (e.g., federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity and other compliance requirements in the United States; the UK Equality Act 2010; the French Code du Travail; the German Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz within Europe; etc).  Thank you in advance for helping to make Samsara the diverse and inclusive environment we strive to be.
