The ideal candidate for engineering manager has a successful background as an engineer, but also understands the value of team culture, communication, and collaboration.  Engineering managers will work with engineers to align individual skills and interests with feature development needs.  Successful managers will support and develop individual contributors based on their needs and interests as well as the needs of the company.

At Samsara, we value aligning small teams with customer use cases and giving the independence needed to quickly deliver impactful solutions.  Specifically, your team may work on backend log-processing and data analytics systems, as well as building out new user interfaces for both web and mobile platforms. Your team will tackle engineering challenges ranging from aggregating data from thousands of 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.
