Working at Samsara means you’ll help define the future of physical operations and be on a team that’s shaping an exciting array of product solutions, including video-based safety, vehicle telematics, apps and driver workflows, equipment monitoring, and site visibility. As part of a newly public company, you’ll have the autonomy and support to make an impact as we build for the long term.

Every year, we partner with our customers to deliver outcomes like conserving millions of gallons of fuel, saving millions of dollars, and creating positive environmental change. As more customers connect to our platform, our data grows, our AI models get smarter, and our opportunities expand.

About the role:

We are looking for a UX Research Intern to work alongside our UX Research and Design teams to make an impact in an exciting product space. As a UXR Intern you are someone who is able to gather insights about customers from a variety of research methods. Candidates should also be able to analyze research results and convey those insights to the appropriate people in the most engaging and actionable manner.

Click here to learn about what we value at Samsara. 

You should apply if:

  • You want to make a difference: The software, firmware, and hardware you build will result in real-world impact—helping to keep the lights on, get food into grocery stores, and most importantly, ensure workers return home safely.
  • You build for scale: Samsara already has more than 2.3 million IoT devices deployed globally with customers that depend on our technology and look forward to the new solutions brought about by our engineers’ innovation. You may work on a mature product that is operating at a large scale already or a product in the early stages that is still being developed.
  • You believe customers are more than a number: Samsara engineers enjoy a rare closeness to the end user and you will have the opportunity to participate in customer interviews, collaborate with customer success and product managers, and use metrics to ensure our work is translating into better customer outcomes.
  • You crave technical ownership: The development of our Connected Operations Cloud technology has only just begun and offers a range of technical challenges that will sharpen your skills and provide opportunities for rapid career growth.

This may not be the right role for you if:

  • You aren’t willing to put in the work: The opportunity we have to digitize large sectors of the global economy requires your full focus and best efforts to bring forth creative, ambitious, and innovative ideas for our customers.
  • You have nothing more to learn: Every Samsarian has a growth mindset and believes that what got us here won’t get us there.
  • You aren’t a team player: Working on our Samsara Engineering teams requires a mix of independent effort and collaboration. Motivated by our mission, we’re all racing toward our connected operations vision, and we intend to win—together.

In this role, you will:

  • Work cross-functionally with design, product management, marketing, and research to plan, facilitate, and implement studies that address both user behaviors and attitudes. 
  • Employ (and learn) a wide range of qualitative research tools and techniques
  • Communicate results and illustrate suggestions in compelling and creative ways
  • 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:

  • Currently pursuing a Bachelors or Masters degree in Human-Computer Interaction, Human Factors, Cognitive Psychology, Anthropology, Statistics, or a related field graduating between Dec. 2023-May 2024.
  • Must be able to come on site in San Francisco to work directly with the product teams and conduct in-person research
  • Ability to clearly communicate your findings, and justify recommendations to stakeholders
  • The ability to be flexible and inventive, using non-traditional approaches to research and user testing, given our product space

An ideal candidate also has:

  • A desire to understand how humans think and act. You enjoy meeting, interviewing, and observing users in their own environments.
  • Experience with qualitative UXR methods including: in-depth interviews, ethnographic research, diary studies, persona development, journey mapping, card sorting, and/or usability testing
  • Relevant experience within user experience, applied research setting and/or product research and development
