Already have convoy offer but I like samsara ceo and their past success. I have an on-site. But I would like to know more about their engineering team. How big are they and how is it structured. I heard that it’s a 150 + plus engineering team but felt it’s little high. My role is around golang work.

Any more details would be appreciated.

    As a complete outsider, let me give this a shot.

    The fact that there are so many fake reviews just to rank high on something as pointless as Glassdoor, speaks volumes about the culture inside the company. Especially, for a founder who's made a billion dollar exit to try hard and get ranked number 1 among 'best SMB CEOs' appears rather lame. I've not seen a single instance on Blind where employees speak up defending their employer either. I'm willing to bet the culture is toxic af.

      I would disagree with the culture being toxic. People are incredibly happy here as far as I can tell.

      Samsara hires a lot of kids right out of college in their first sales role. They're excited after their first 5 days and leave a stupid glowing review to try to get their friends to apply. Idk kids are dumb.

      The sales culture is pretty bro but the engineering team is literally in a separate building and very different. Definitely 150+ on eng team but most of them were hired in the past 6 months.

      Also, as a non-outsider, the CEO is the complete opposite of how you're painting him. One of the humblest and most down to earth leaders I've talked to. He had nothing to do with that Glassdoor award, he said he thought they were just sending him spam when he saw their first few emails telling him about it.

      I do agree with what the above person said about our CEO. We’re trying to maintain the great culture within the engineering as the company is going through the hyper growth, but things are going pretty well here.

      Can you never give anything a shot ever again as a complete outsider with absolutely no information?

      I agree. The samsara engineering culture is great. As a post-Meraki person, the culture I see here is very similar to early days Meraki, but better. A lot of effort is spent making sure the culture stays great and that any lessons that were learned in previous companies get applied as we scale
