  • We’re looking for an Electrical Engineer to join our team. In the day-to-day, you will be responsible for working on the EE aspects of the design of products based on thorough feasibility, design, and cost studies encompassing key component selection, thermals, antenna, etc. We have a tremendous amount of telemetry and access to customers that help guide our design process. You will work directly with our customers to ensure we lead the industry with our product design. We run a collaborative process working closely with Product Management, PD, FW, EPM, NPI, and Hardware leadership to make excellent tradeoffs and choices. Throughout this process, you’ll share your expertise with other engineers. The US and Taiwan EE teams are supported by the Supply Chain team, laboratories, JDM design resources, and a growing supply base. You will work closely with these internal and external partners to achieve our objectives.
  • This role will be based out of our San Francisco office. Co-ops are required to be in the office Tuesdays to Thursdays. As part of the co-op program, we do provide relocation and housing support for the duration of the co-op. 

You should apply if:

  • You want to impact the industries that run our world: Your efforts will result in real-world impact—helping to keep the lights on, get food into grocery stores, reduce emissions, and most importantly, ensure workers return home safely.
  • You are the architect of your own career: If you put in the work, this role won’t be your last at Samsara. We set up our employees for success and have built a culture that encourages rapid career development, and countless opportunities to experiment and master your craft in a hyper-growth environment.

Area of Responsibilities



  • Contribute to shipping, successful product lines.
  • Conduct research: Stay informed of the latest silicon possibilities from all the top semiconductor companies.
  • Know the system: Evaluate system feature tradeoffs and create the system specifications for development with product management and cross-functional engineering teams.
  • Prototype: Assemble EVKs, board hacks, or quick-turn fabrication for evaluating concepts or jump-starting firmware development.
  • Design: Take a concept from block diagram to schematics and through layout; either on your own or navigate the process with JDM resources.
  • Test: Create a validation plan for each phase of the product development through PVT and characterize the full electrical system for function, power, and use-cases.
  • Failure analysis: Find the root cause of design inefficiencies and field failures, and improve design to meet performance and quality requirements.
  • 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
