About Samsara Hardware Engineering:

Samsara's hardware systems bridge the gap for the rapidly evolving world of physical operations to a cloud platform that enables our customers to increase the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of the operations that power the global economy. 

The hardware footprint is big – we build ultra low power sensors, ruggedized asset trackers, vehicle ADAS systems with AI/ML, telematics systems, rackmount video inspection with AI/Ml and maybe much more. 

We leverage myriad technologies including low power MCUs, beefy SoCs, DSPs, LTE, GPS, BLE, WiFi, imaging sensors, ML/AI/CV, accelerometers, and more.  

Our challenges span the gamut from eeking out single digit microamps to thermals to desense to cost reduction to antenna design to enclosure design that survives extreme environments.

In the day to day, you will be responsible for guiding the architecture of multiple products after leading a thorough industrial design study, encompassing the environment, installation, usability, aesthetics considerations. We have a tremendous amount of telemetry and access to customers that help guide our design process. You will crawl around equipment and industrial facilities working directly with our customers to ensure we lead the industry in our product design.

We run a collaborative process working closely with Product Management, EE, FW, EPM, and Hardware leadership to make excellent tradeoffs and decisions. Throughout this process, you’ll mentor other engineers.  

The US and Taiwan PD teams are supported by the Supply Chain team, laboratories, JDM design resources, and a growing supply base.

  • Mentor, coach, and uplevel the team around you. You will be a role model.
  • Manage: We bolster our internal development team with top JDM companies to design, validate, certify and manufacture quality products, certification labs and other external consultants. 
  • 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:

  • 10+ years of experience shipping high volume hardware programs at scale with ODM and JDM partners overseas.
  • Systems design expertise including thermals, SoC selection, rugged enclosures, antennas, batteries, etc.
  • Proven record navigating tradeoffs between design, manufacturability, schedule, and cost.
  • Worked on a wide variety of systems for different use cases and environments including automotive, indoor and outdoor industrial areas, and whatever we may do next.
