Samsara’s CEO just won Top CEO for SMB on Glassdoor.

Has anybody heard of Samsara? A well funded startup in the Bay Area. Thoughts or opinions? Would you work there?

    Strong founders and team. One of few startups in the Bay Area I would consider.

      You're just saying the same thing on multiple threads. What's your source?
      I'm curious as well.

    Solid option that has a good chance of an exit (IPO/acquisition)

      Founders already exited meraki in acquisition by Cisco. Aka track record of success. But low ball offers

    I've heard of them. Stellar team, stellar product. Not sure how their sales are doing though.

    It also looks like they pivoted due to lack of traction for their first solution

      You can commute from their South Bay office. Work from there 2 out of 3 days a week.

      Don't see engineering positions in San Jose, so perhaps it's just a sales office etc?

    • Samsara lacroix221
      They're starting to staff engineers in the SJ office. Definitely worth reaching out and learning more

      The SJ office has Sales Engineers, Account Executives, Technical Support, and Account Development Representatives. Let me know if you're interested in learning more.
