The Path Forward Return to Work program at Samsara is a 16- week paid internship for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off for caregiving. The program is open to women and men who have at least 3 years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for at least 2 years to focus on caring for a child or other dependent. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply.
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 engineer at Samsara, you will design and develop features for our web platform. This involves working on our backend log-processing and data 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 Golang for our backend, Typescript and React for our web client, GraphQL to fetch data from our backend, and React Native for our mobile app. 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
Video processing and classification features for our internet-connected dashcam product
A service that sends scheduled customer emails by aggregating requested data, rendering HTML content using React, and using mailgun for delivery
Our authentication system, which allows users to configure access controls for certain areas of our platform
A mobile app that allows drivers to log daily activity and accept delivery tasks
An ideal candidate would:
Have built or worked on production applications
Enjoy understanding our users and what would make their day to day processes easier to manage
Love shipping features that are immediately used by our customers
Seek to iterate on new products based on customer feedback
