Manager, Sales

Remote (Canada)

Samsara is seeking Inside Sales Managers to join our passionate, high energy, and fast moving sales team. You’ll lead and support our Account Executives II focusing on mid-sized and enterprise businesses in the US region. You will have a consistent track record of ability to hire, develop, and lead an inclusive, engaged, and high performing team. 


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.
