Samsara’s a great company, so I would love to receive a return offer and be regarded as a "superstar" intern. What high-level tips do you have to accomplish this?

    • Be open, honest, and transparent with your intern mentor. Be comfortable being vulnerable, and aggressively use their time to solve issues and unblock yourself.
    • Set clear expectations with your mentor on what needs to be delivered in order to meet the return offer bar.
    • Keep your eye on the code. Intern is the stage in a SWE career where coding is the most important. A lot of interns understand that volume is important, and a lot forget that quality is important as well. Push to write beautiful code that's a joy to go over in code review for your teammates.
