Talent Network

Principal Technical Program Manager, Data Culture

Department: Platforms and Infrastructure

Location: Seattle

Req#: 3347

At Sonos, we're passionate about bringing music into every home.  To fulfill this mission we have developed an unquenchable thirst for data.  We use data to understand how our products are performing, which features need to be improved, design future products, optimize our supply chain and sales channel performance, and learn how our customers experience music in their homes. This generates billions of transactions to track and analyze.  If you like music and data, this is a dream job.

About You

Our band is large. And while there’s plenty of room for all kinds of personalities and skill sets to succeed, there are certain qualities that will help you thrive here.

Like a never-accept-less work ethic. An exceptionally low ego-to-talent ratio (none of the first, tons of the latter). A relentless craving to push past your limits and try new things. The smarts and the humble confidence to take on big challenges, make mistakes fast and early, embrace tough feedback, then recover quickly with fresh, startlingly perfect solutions. A fearless willingness to defend great work. And a tendency to totally geek out on music.

If this sounds like you, read on and let’s connect soon.

What You’ll Do
While we have a lot of data at Sonos, we have a long way to go to harness it effectively.  In this role you will drive initiatives across the company to maximize every organization's abilities to use data in a way that has the most impact to their business. You will be creating standards that will become part of our culture.  You will set goals for your own program and for other organizations throughout Sonos and ensure they are successful.  You will contribute to and carry out the vision for how Sonos uses data for years to come. 

Why You'll Love It
You will interact with every organization across Sonos, gaining exposure to how our products are designed, built, advertised, sold, experienced, supported, and shared among our passionate and loyal customers.  You will be a culture change agent, highly autonomous and responsible for your own success.  You will be supported by some of the most friendly, brilliant, and fun people you’ve ever worked with.  You’ll be proud to be part of the work behind the products that you can see and use in your own home.  

Skills You’ll Need
This role requires expertise in project management fundamentals (defining roadmaps, setting goals, tracking action items, driving ownership, plus your own project management special sauce).  Be comfortable working closely with senior executives, non-technical business leaders, and engineers.  Be able to influence others and drive change throughout organizations.  Enjoy bringing clarity to ambiguous and difficult problems.  See opportunities and create an action plan to achieve them.  Have fun while overcoming obstacles and help others see a clear path to do the same. 

How to Audition
More About Our Band

In 2002, we set out to reinvent home audio for the digital age. Our mission–to fill every home with amazing sounding music. Yes, it was an ambitious goal. Challenging, too. And that hasn’t changed.

Since those early days, we’ve remained tirelessly focused on finding innovative ways to make listening out loud, with friends and loved ones, the truly transformative experience it should be. We’ve seen our vision capture the imaginations of music lovers in more than 60 countries, as we’ve continued to introduce products, software, and technologies that help people share the songs they love, discover new music they never knew existed, and experience richer, more musical lives.

At Sonos, we are building a team with extraordinary talent to help us fill every home with music. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.
