Senior Software Engineer (DevOps/Site Reliability)

Department: Software

Location: Boston

Req#: 4439

At Sonos, we're passionate about creating the finest HiFi audio experiences in the world for our customers. Our team believes Sonos customers should be able to get help when and where they need it. We are excited to be working on a new software platform to diagnose issues in a customer’s Sonos systems and networking environment and we need help! If you are passionate about observability and automation, and you have instilled this same quality in the other developers on your team, we want to talk with you!


We are looking for an advocate for site reliability engineering best practices to help us ensure the health and up-time of our applications with code, not heroics. You'll have a direct impact on the business, advancing a major component of our core strategy. Come help us design and build these new tools, with reliability and scalability in mind.

About You

You're not like everyone else.

You bring a unique perspective to the table. Transparency tops your list of values. Your smarts and creativity are off the charts, matched only by your humility. You want to collaborate with a team of diverse talent. 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 unafraid to make mistakes because you learn from them and bounce back quickly. You don't stop until you get it right. "Impossible" isn't in your vocabulary. You're more interested in creating the future than waiting for it.

You love to listen.

You start every interaction from a place of listening and seeking to understand. You're culturally connected. You remember your first concert. You can readily recommend a binge-worthy show on Netflix, Hulu or HBO. You can't sit in traffic without a great audiobook, podcast or album. You can make a killer playlist. Your idea of a good weekend includes watching a movie or playing a video game.

What You’ll Do

You will be part of a team that has recently launched an AWS serverless application using React, Mobx, Redux, Node, and Webpack that helps our customer care team provide faster assistance to our customers. You will help us improve the whole service life-cycle, from design through deployment and continuing operation. We care deeply about the customer experience, and we are looking for a senior engineer with a focus on site reliability and devops who can help us ensure that customers can access the services they want when they want them. Since this is a fairly new project, you will have the opportunity for substantial influence over the architecture and design of our pipelines, monitoring, and alerting for this strategically critical project.
