Our values

“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 and Inclusion at Samotics

We strive to be a great workplace, where talented people feel at home. With teammates spanning ten nationalities, we’re already reaping the benefits of a wide-angle view on the world. As we begin our next phase of growth, we’re excited about adding even more backgrounds and perspectives to our workforce. 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 laurakits@samotics.com.

Spotlight: Natalie

Customer Insights Manager

“What I love most about working for Samotics is its perfect mix of strategy and digital, with the ability to create lasting impact not only within our company but for our customers. As a customer insights manager, I thoroughly enjoy helping our team and our customers drive growth, accelerate digitally, and achieve long-term reductions in energy and emissions.”

After earning two degrees focused on mathematics, statistics and the use of data in communication, Natalie started her career in consulting. But she quickly realized she wanted to have a more tangible impact. At Samotics, she gets to not only design new features, but also test, implement and scale them.

Spotlight: Bart

Lead Software Engineer

“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. Read the full interview with Bart here.

Spotlight: Eduardo

Data Scientist

“I love working with Industry 4.0—getting my hands dirty in this new, revolutionary topic. I work with cutting-edge AI models, solving a problem that is very critical to many companies. It feels good to be a part of a solution that makes a real contribution.”

Eduardo studied and worked in Brazil before he decided to expand his horizons and move to the Netherlands. So far, working at Samotics has been a rewarding experience as well as an adventure. Read the full interview with Eduardo here.

Spotlight: Siyou

Monitoring & Data Qualification Analyst

I have a passion for technology, but for a tech professional I have a non-traditional background with a bachelor’s degree in communications. I worked hard during my master’s in data science to become familiar with a whole new area of expertise. At Samotics, I’m getting the chance to prove myself in this field.”

Siyou realized she had a passion for data science while she was working as a communications intern, after having finished a communications degree. She went back to school and is now in charge of training anomaly detection models and guarding data quality at Samotics. Read the full interview with Siyou here.

Spotlight: Cesare

Junior Asset Reliability Specialist

I joined Samotics to build a career in engineering, but it’s turning out to be much more than that. I’m becoming a well rounded technical-commercial professional.”

Cesare joined Samotics in February 2021, before his master’s degree in mechanical engineering was even final. During his studies he became fascinated with smart predictive maintenance, and at Samotics, he’s getting to build on his expertise and develop new insight features every day—while also building lasting relationships with clients.

Our recruitment process

What does interviewing at Samotics look like?

We love AI—but when you toss your hat into the ring at Samotics, your application will be reviewed by a living, breathing human being. Whether we invite you for the next step or not, you’ll get a personal response from us. Pro tip: adding a personalized, crisp and to-the-point cover letter increases your chance of standing out!

If we like your resume and cover letter, we’ll invite you for a first interview. This initial get-to-know-you will be with one of us who is well-positioned to assess whether your skills and ambitions are a potential match with what we’re looking for. And then we’ll go from there. For our customer-facing and data science teams, the follow-up usually consists of several interviews with relevant team members. For software engineering roles, you’ll be invited for an assessment day consisting of two technical interviews and a meeting with our CTO. We’re serious about interviewing, but our approach is friendly and personal. Applicants tell us that they very much enjoy our interview process.

COVID-19 has changed the recruitment experience for all of us. All of our recruitment currently happens online—but we’re looking forward to receiving candidates in the office again soon.
