At Sonos, we're passionate about creating the finest sound experiences in the world. One of the keys to great experiences is great software. Great software is as important at Sonos as our award winning hardware. Great software takes hard work, solid processes, and good tools. It takes many iterations of experimentation, feedback, and adjustment. This critical iterative loop requires software pipelines that quickly deliver our latest ideas, captured in high-quality code, to our testers, partners, and customers. The Sonos Release Team is focused on this mission. On building and maintaining the software delivery pipelines that keep our customer experiences ahead of the curve. 


As a Senior Developer on the Release Team, you'll work with the team to create and maintain the internal applications and external services Sonos uses to release software. You’ll use your skills and experience to work with stakeholders to gather requirements, architect cloud-based solutions, and guide the work of junior engineers to implement and operate high-quality applications. Our team is interested in great tools based on modern architectures, cloud infrastructure, and languages. We’re interested in developing our own tools and services with same DevOps and CI/CD best practices we champion in the company. If you’re an experienced developer who’s passionate about DevOps, CI/CD pipelines, and internal tooling, then let’s talk and see if the Sonos Release Team would be the right fit for you.
