Who we are
Samsara (NYSE: IOT) is the pioneer of the Connected Operations Cloud, which allows businesses that depend on physical operations to harness IoT (Internet of Things) data to develop actionable business insights and improve their operations. Founded in San Francisco in 2015, we now employ more than 1,800 people globally and have over 1.5 million active devices. Samsara also went public in December 2021 and we’re just getting started.
Recent awards we’ve won include:
We're driving change in industries that are yet to fully embrace digital transformation. Physical operations make up a massive slice of the global economy but haven’t benefited from innovation and actionable information in the way that other sectors have. The potential for scale and impact is huge.
About the role:
Samsara is seeking a data engineer to join our Data Engineering team.
Samsara has hundreds of thousands of devices deployed throughout the world and over 20,000 customers using our cloud based products. This results in a vast amount of data in our central data lake / warehouse.
Our overall goal on the Data Engineering team is to make sure the rest of the company has the correct data sets needed to efficiently and accurately do analysis, train models, and build dashboards off of our product data.
The team is responsible for building data pipelines, primarily in SparkSQL and Pyspark, that exist in our data lake. Our data lake is primary delta/parquet tables on S3, which we process through Databricks. This team has access to all of the “raw” data collected throughout our products. Given we are an IoT company, that’s a lot of data that can be hard for the rest of the company to make sense of. This team becomes deeply familiar with the product and our data in order to build the right tables that the rest of the company can use.
The team works closely with the following teams:
Note that there are other data engineering teams throughout Samsara. This team is our product Data Engineering team within R&D, focused on data collected in Samsara products.
