About the role:

We’re seeking Legal Interns for Samsara’s 2024 Summer Internship Program, which will run from late May 2024 to early August 2024 (start/end dates are flexible).

Our Legal team embodies Samsara’s core values of focusing on customer success, building for the long term, adopting a growth mindset, being inclusive, and winning as a team. We partner closely with our counterparts across Samsara – from our sales and marketing teams to our engineering and product teams, and everything in between – to help scale the business quickly and responsibly. We strive to provide practical solutions to complex problems. And we enthusiastically embrace the huge opportunity in front of us to have a positive impact on our customers, employees, partners, and communities in which we operate.

In this role, you will take on a broad range of legal issues that may include commercial contracts, intellectual property, privacy, employment, compliance, litigation, product counseling, regulatory, and corporate matters.

We want you to be a force-multiplier, making those around you more effective. You have strong communication and interpersonal skills and are comfortable taking on new challenges. You focus on the details, and you also have the broad vision to bring large and multi-stepped projects to completion.

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: We set up our employees for success and have built a culture that encourages rapid career development, along with countless opportunities to experiment and master your craft in a hyper growth environment.
  • You’re energized by our opportunity: The vision we have to digitize large sectors of the global economy requires your full focus and best efforts to bring forth creative, ambitious ideas for our customers.
  • You want to be with the best: At Samsara, we win together, celebrate together and support each other. You will be surrounded by a high-caliber team that will encourage you to do your best.

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 a role is required to be in a certain location and candidates do not have work authorization for that location, Samsara will conduct an immigration assessment. 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.

Please note: Samsara does not accept agency resumes and is not responsible for any fees related to unsolicited resumes. Please do not forward resumes to Samsara employees.
