Senior Recruiter (Contract)

Department: Human Resources and Talent

Location: Boston, Santa Barbara

Req#: 5233

For the past 16 years, we’ve changed the way people listen. We’ve designed the ultimate home music experience. Now we strive to empower listeners, everywhere.

This would not have been possible without the amazing team we have built thus far and continue to build.  Our people are the drivers and passion behind our pioneering technology that create and support this fast-growing market space.

For this role, we are looking for a strategic, creative, and action-oriented Talent Acquisition professional.   We are Talent Advisors to our hiring managers.  We partner with them to efficiently grow our organizations, finding the best and the brightest team members to build high-performing teams.

Sonos has large growth ambitions and in this role, you will have tangible impact on our future success. If you love music, and want to work with fun, smart, and focused people, then we’d like to talk to you.
About You

More than a candidate that checks every box, we’re looking for people who are excited to work, learn, and grow at Sonos—no matter their background or how they identify. If that’s you, we hope you’ll apply for this role.

You want to be part of a team.

You come with new ideas and a unique point of view. You look forward to collaborating with a diverse team of individuals. You assume everyone’s best intentions, welcome a healthy debate, and embrace differing opinions. You eagerly seek and give help. Transparency tops your list of values, and you proactively contribute to a culture of respect and inclusion.

You enjoy a challenge.

Inquisitive and focused, you see every challenge as an opportunity. You’re ambitious and comfortable making mistakes because you learn from them and bounce back quickly. You would rather create the future than wait for it. You prioritize long-term value over short-term objectives.

You love to listen.

You approach every interaction with curiosity and a desire to understand. You want to make a positive impact in the world. You’re passionate about culture and know the power that music, film, podcasts, games, and stories have to bring people together.

What You’ll Do
  • You will partner with hiring managers to translate business strategies into relevant talent strategies that address near term needs and yield long term benefits.  Through a process rooted in consistency and informed by data, you will help hiring teams identify the “best” candidate for each role while creating a more diverse and inclusive Sonos.
  • You will respect our candidates by personalizing the experience, nurturing a relationship to better understand the person (not just the resume), and providing a transparent view the larger team and culture at Sonos, not just the specific role and hiring manager.
  • You will share your passion for the industry.  That means cultivating and sharing knowledge about music and technology, current events, trends, target companies, and innovation within relevant domains.
Skills You’ll Need
  • Must have corporate/in-house recruiting experience, specifically with either Operations or G&A roles.  Experience with Marketing hiring is a plus.
  • Experience using your power of influence to drive action and achieve results.
  • Creativity in problem-solving and resourcefulness across all stages of the hiring cycle.
  • Demonstrated ability to be detail-oriented, and have strong organizational & prioritization skills.
  • Experience in compensation and general HR requirements as related to hiring.
  • Ability to work effectively in a highly collaborative and distributed team-based environment.  For example, you will work closely with People Partners to strategically impact the business but will need to nurture these relationships using tools like Slack and/or Zoom if face-to-face interaction isn’t an option.
  • BS/BA degree
