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 1,600 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: 

  • #2 in the Financial Times’ Fastest Growing Companies in Americas list 2021
  • Named as a Best Place to Work in Built In 2022 
  • #19 in the Forbes Cloud 100 2021  
  • IoT Analytics Company of the Year in 2022’s IoT Breakthrough Winners 
  • Forbes Advisor named us the Best Solution for Large Companies - Fleet management software for 2022!

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:

The Security Operations Engineer is responsible for building, operating, and maintaining Samsara’s core information security infrastructure. Reporting to the Head of Information Security, you will collaborate with a global team of engineers to proactively identify and mitigate risks, respond to and manage security incidents, and protect Samsara’s corporate infrastructure and operations.

You take Security seriously, and strive to build low friction solutions developed in close partnership with others. In a typical day, you might meet with a vendor to scope an upcoming implementation of a new endpoint security tool, spend time refining our logging and alerting system to provide better insights, or take part in incident response as the primary security point of contact. Above all, your focus is on bringing Security expertise to the table in a collaborative, humble, and practical manner.

In this role, you will: 
  • Build, operate, and maintain information security infrastructure, including endpoint detection/response systems, data loss prevention software, logging and alerting tooling, and identity/access governance systems.
  • Proactively own the systems within your domain and lead incident response exercises when signals point to potential vulnerabilities or compromises. 
  • Work with other teams across the organization to implement controls that align with Samsara’s compliance and internal security policies.
  • Champion, role model, and embed Samsara’s cultural principles (Focus on Customer Success, Build for the Long Term, Adopt a Growth Mindset, Be Inclusive, Win as a Team) as we scale globally and across new offices.

Minimum requirements for the role:

  • Broad exposure to various security approaches, frameworks, and tooling; with a deep understanding of core security concepts around endpoint protection, vulnerability management, and incident response.
  • At least three years’ experience working in security operations or security engineering within the technology sector.
  • Understanding of modern analysis and forensics techniques on macOS, Windows, and Linux.

An ideal candidate also has:

  • Experience with managing multiple AWS cloud environments for security compliance.
  • Experience conducting security investigations across user endpoints and servers.

An Insider's view of Samsara

What’s the vibe like in the office?

When I was an intern, I was pretty involved in the anime club. Once a week after work, we would all pile into a meeting room and watch anime together. At the end of my internship, a giant group of us went out to Japantown to get ramen together as a sort of going away party. After I started full-time, we continue watching weekly shows remotely.

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re not just selling technology; we’re making a real impact on the world. We’re reducing fuel emissions, helping companies go carbon neutral, and even saving lives by reducing accidents. That’s amazing! It still gets me excited every day that we get to have that level of impact through our customers.

Setahrae

Inside Sales Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

The career growth I’ve experienced over the course of just three years has been incredibly rewarding. I was doing channel marketing—and now I’m closing deals $100,000 and above. It’s pretty unique to work at a place that offers you the opportunities to grow your career so quickly and effectively. There’s plenty of opportunity at Samsara.

Joey

Senior Account Executive

What is your vision for the company?

We believe data and technology can help make smarter decisions about how the world runs. The challenges from climate change to running a safe and efficient company requires data that Samsara can help provide. Infrastructure and operations makes up a third of the world’s economy. So we want to give it the same attention that the consumer world has.

Sanjit

CEO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

For customers to be safer, more efficient, and sustainable, we must digitize the physical world, process huge volumes of data, deliver advanced data-driven insights, and provide a single source of truth through our Connected Operations Cloud. Every day, we work on a wide range of technologies from embedded firmware to big data to AI and more.
