Globally, 300 million industrial electric motors power the global economy while consuming 30% of all energy produced. These motors face three critical problems: they fail unexpectedly, are often operated inefficiently, and selected inadequately. This leads to high costs of unplanned downtime and massive energy waste. At Samotics, we are passionate about solving these problems with a unique, AI-driven solution. Our technology is used by many of the world's largest and most successful industrial companies. It enables them to significantly reduce energy waste, with our mission to reduce global energy consumption by 10%! Since our launch in 2015 we’ve grown fast—with more than 100% revenue growth per year and currently over 100 people. We are an energetic company where professionalism, a great atmosphere, and cutting-edge technology go hand in hand.
OUR OPEN POSITIONS
“Act instead of react.” This short phrase sums up what we stand for at Samotics. It relates directly to our product, SAM4, but it also reflects the way we work. Behind each of these core values we've identified four sub-values and behaviors, such as "we put ourselves in our customers' shoes," "we win when our customers succeed," and "we know diversity makes us stronger."
We keep ourselves and each other accountable by referring to these values when we evaluate projects or provide feedback, as well as during our monthly company update, when our CEO takes us through the highlights and lessons of the past month.
Diversity & inclusion
We strive to be a great workplace, where talented people feel at home. With teammates spanning 25 nationalities, we’re already reaping the benefits of a wide-angle view of the world. Among other things, we’re actively on the lookout for more female talent, for both our technical and commercial teams. Inclusivity was top of mind when we designed our new office. For instance, we have private spaces for breastfeeding, prayer or a post-lunchtime-workout shower. And we designed our office in such a way that both extroverted and introverted colleagues can find a productive place to work that suits their preferences.
If you have any questions on inclusion and diversity at Samotics, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bart Lead Software Engineering
“After four years, our product continues to motivate me. According to the IPCC, reducing the energy used by electric motors is a key component of combating climate change. And that’s exactly what we do—with a product that’s proven its effect and value, and with frontier technology.”
Bart is a senior software engineer with a background in aerospace engineering. He was one of the first members of the Samotics team, and thanks to the high pace of development at the company, is still as motivated to work on SAM4 as he was on day one.
