Senior Software Engineer - Data Platform
Platforms and Infrastructure
Boston, Santa Barbara, Seattle
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. If you like music and data, this is a dream job.
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.
Build, manage, and deploy large-scale distributed systems that collect data from millions of endpoints all around the world. Then process those streams of information using the best tools for the job (we currently use Apache Spark, and a combination of AWS services including Kinesis, Lambda, EC2, and S3), enabling us to build insightful analytics that span all business and product data for the whole company.

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.
