Growth Engineer

Samsara - San Francisco, CA

Full-time
Samsara, founded in 2015, is a leader in Industrial IoT and our mission is to increase the efficiency, safety, and sustainability of the operations that power our economy. Our solutions combine hardware and software to bring real-time visibility, analytics, and AI to operations across various industries. Samsara's fast-growing team is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in San Jose, Atlanta, and London. Our team has raised over $530M from Andreessen Horowitz, General Catalyst, Tiger Global, and Dragoneer.

We're looking for a Growth Engineer who can help us build business-critical software that drives customer acquisition, accelerates top-of-funnel conversion and enables our Sales and Marketing teams to scale. As Growth Engineers we ask questions like "what can we build to improve gross margins?" and "how can we use data to understand and optimize lead acquisition?" We then build, test and measure the impact of the experiments we run. We appreciate software engineers who are quick to pick up new frameworks/tools and are thoughtful about building quickly while being mindful of technical debt. The software we build has a direct impact on both revenue and our bottom line.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work the entire stack - from how you architect and deploy to how you test the code you write. We use Python for our backends, Javascript for our frontends and AWS to manage our infrastructure. Our team believes deeply in solving hard business problems with software, data, and exceptional cross-team collaboration.

The Growth Engineer will work on:
Leverage data to understand our customers and our funnel in depth, identify areas of opportunity and execute projects to drive revenue, customer growth, retention, and/or engagement
Build internal solutions that automate business processes using any combination of custom frontends, Cloud applications, backend services, scripts, etc.
Collaborate with marketing and sales operations teams to implement growth initiatives
Lead engineering discussions and write thoughtful documentation and unit tests
Champion, role model, and embed Samsara's cultural principles (Obsess Over the Customer, Build for the Long Term, Growth Mindset) as we scale globally and across new offices

An ideal candidate would have:
2+ years of experience working in a full stack, API engineering or application services role
Experience with Python and/or Javascript
Knowledgeable about modern web technologies and testing frameworks
Excellent analytical skills
Ability to partner with different parts of the organization to identify and solve major business problems
Desire to learn about the business side of a startup (prior growth engineering experience is a plus but not required)
B.S., M.S. degree (or higher) in Computer Science or related technical experience.
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.
