Customer Engagement Manager
Samsara’s mission is to bring the benefits of sensor data to the organizations that drive our economy—from transportation and logistics to construction, food production, energy, and manufacturing—and to improve the safety, efficiency, and quality of their operations. Samsara was started by the founders of Meraki, the cloud-managed networking company that was acquired by Cisco for $1.2 billion. Samsara is based in San Francisco and is funded by Andreessen Horowitz.
In this role, you will be responsible for helping Samsara’s largest & most strategic customers implement and adopt our IoT solutions for their fleet and industrial assets.

In a given week you may work with a large long-haul trucking company, an industrial-scale food producer, and a public utility to develop an implementation plan, train various groups within the customer’s organization, troubleshoot and escalate issues (working with our tech support team), and ensure a successful customer relationship.
Your role will be cross-functional in nature, working alongside and connecting product managers, business operations, sales, and systems engineers, enabling you to experience multiple aspects of a hyper-growth company from within. Since Samsara is a fast-growing company with an emerging IoT technology, you can expect this role to evolve over time, with opportunities to take on increasing levels of responsibility and impact our growth.
This role requires the ability to deeply understand a customer's business and operational needs, exceptional customer-facing communication skills while delivering onboarding services by phone, video conference, & in person, project management experience, and the technical competence to understand Samsara’s product capabilities, manage system integrations, and diagnose product issues.
