We’re here to do one thing – inspire the world to listen better.   Our mission has never been more vital than it is today.  While streaming finally unlocks access to all the music on earth, the critical question remains how we’ll experience it. Will music be impoverished by inferior technology and imprisoned by earbuds?  Or will music be liberated by real innovation and reemerge as the cultural campfire around which people have gathered for millennia?  As marketers at Sonos we have a responsibility to directly influence this outcome.  Our brand is changing the way people listen to music, and we’re on a journey to bring this experience to a global audience.

Strategic vision, passion, integrity, strong communication skills in both English and Spanish and an eye for great execution are all required.

The role will be  located in Seattle or Santa Barbara, you must be authorized to work in the United States.
