Samsara’s network of hardware devices deliver data to our IoT platform. Once the data has been processed, users can access detailed information about their commercial fleets and industrial centers through our web application. Our customers use this data, which includes real-time GPS fixes, aggregated reports over weeks of data, and alerts for disallowed driver and vehicle behavior, to understand and optimize their operations.
As a full-stack engineering intern at Samsara, you will design and develop features for our web platform. This involves working on our backend data processing and analytics systems, as well as building out new user interfaces. You’ll tackle engineering challenges ranging from aggregating data from thousands of devices and sensors to presenting the data in intuitive ways that provide actionable insights for our customers’ operations.
We use Go for our backend, Typescript and React for our web client, GraphQL to fetch data from our backend, React Native for our mobile app, and run on AWS. Direct experience with these technologies is not required.
You might work on:
A dashboard for customers to optimize fuel usage over a fleet of vehicles that drives a million miles per week
Designing and building a system to efficiently query and process historical data to support sophisticated user searches (“what vehicles in my fleet drove within x miles of this address y two weeks ago?”), and the UI for it.
Implementing a MapReduce framework to distribute and optimize analysis of large data sets.
A mobile app that allows drivers to log daily activity and accept delivery tasks
