About the role:

As a Senior Inside Sales Engineer at Samsara, you’ll be splitting your time across two major focus areas; (1) supporting senior-level sellers in an attempt to grow existing customers, or win new customers, and (2) contributing to the SE Team as a Senior resource. There is an expectation that a Senior SE is highly accountable for each technical sale, meaning that strong storytelling, objection handling, custom workarounds, advanced integrations, and extensive hands-on experience are requirements to win most deals. Takeaways from these activities should be shared across the SE Team via team meetings, messaging tools, etc.

Additionally, a Senior ISE is accountable for carving out time to source and deliver product information, conduct testing of alpha products/features, manage projects, and build process improvements and automation that will scale the broader Inside SE Team. A Senior ISE will still carry a quota, so a successful Senior ISE will possess excellent time management skills and will maintain a clear focus on retiring quota in addition to Senior responsibilities.

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, and most importantly, ensure workers return home safely. You have innate curiosity in how businesses work: One day you’ll meet with someone in waste management and the next you may be learning about the inner workings of a food distribution center. Our top sales team members seek to learn the ins and outs of the businesses they support in order to make a larger impact. You build genuine relationships with your customers: The industries we serve have relied on pen-and-paper solutions for years and haven’t been met with the type of technology we offer. Our customers value earned trust and human relationships built over time. You want to be with the best: Samsara’s high-performance culture means you’ll be surrounded by the best and challenged to go farther than you have before. You are a team player: At Samsara, sales is a team sport. We help each other out by sharing best practices and focus on winning as a team.

Flexible Working

At Samsara, we have adopted a flexible way of working, enabling teams and individuals to do their best work, regardless of where they’re based. We value in-person collaboration and know a change of scenery and quiet space to work is welcomed from time to time, but also appreciate that the world of work has changed. Our offices remain open for those who prefer to collaborate or work in-office, but we also encourage fully remote applicants. As most roles are not required to be in the office, we are able to hire remotely where Samsara has an established presence.

If the role is not required to be in a specific location, Samsara will move forward with the remote location that works best for the business. All offers of employment are contingent upon an individual’s ability to secure and maintain the legal right to work at the company.
