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 software engineer focusing on backend infrastructure at Samsara, you will design and develop the infrastructure that powers Samsara’s IoT platform. Backend infrastructure engineers work on scaling our data ingestion and storage systems to support more and more connected devices, and work with engineers throughout the company to make new types of data analysis possible.
Our backend is written in Golang, runs on AWS, and is deployed using Terraform, though direct experience with these technologies is not required.
You might work on:
A load test that discovers scaling bottlenecks
Sharding the main service with which our gateway devices communicate
Our framework that automatically delivers real-time data to our front-end
Long-term time series storage on S3 for later analysis
An ideal candidate would:
Have built or worked on critical production systems using AWS or other modern clouds
Know distributed systems fundamentals and implementation best practices
At Samsara, we welcome all. All sizes, colors, cultures, sexes, beliefs, religions, ages, people. We depend on the unique approaches of our team members to help us solve complex problems. We are committed to increasing diversity across our team and ensuring that Samsara is a place where people from all backgrounds can make an impact.
