Senior Technical Product Manager - Cloud Services

Department: Product Management

Location: Boston, Santa Barbara, Seattle

Req#: 3079

We are looking for a highly technical Senior Product Manager to work closely with our engineering team to design and architect our cloud platform, and have vision to build the foundation that will allow us to enable our partners to build innovative experiences on the Sonos platform. 

To thrive in this role, you must obsess with customer experience, bring a strong eye for innovation, have technical depth (especially in building cloud based experiences) and possess solid business savvy. We need someone who has shipped products before, and is versatile and can work comfortably in an ambiguous environment.  

We are looking for someone who communicates effectively, can balance short term tradeoffs while maintaining a clear vision for the future, and is excited about pushing the boundaries of innovation. As the Senior Technical Product Manager for Cloud Platform, you must have a solid background in services scalability, performance, and supportability of services.

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

  • Set the vision, strategy, and roadmap for the Sonos Cloud Platform
  • Drive the technical functional requirements of core features and provide clear prioritization for the engineering team.
  • Guide and prioritize the work of the software development team, while effectively balancing sometimes conflicting priorities from our partners.
  • Engage in depth on technical discussions with developers and test engineers to make the most efficient architecture and implementation decisions.
  • Engage with internal and external partners to build services that will deliver the ultimate sound experience to our customers.

Skills You’ll Need

This role requires strong technical, interpersonal, and presentation skills, as well as passion around music and technology.   You will bring a strong technical background having worked with various platforms, and key past experiences necessary for this position include:

  • 5+ years of recent experience as a Technical Product Manager.
  • Software Product Management experience with significant technical focus.
  • Highly analytical with strong experience in data driven engineering.
  • Substantial, demonstrated experience as a cross-functional leader driving the creation of successful, technically innovative products.
  • Proven experience shipping large scale cloud services in the past (knows what it takes to run and support a service that reaches millions of users).
  • Expertise in IoT (Internet of Things) technologies and communication protocols.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, with the ability to articulate both business/user value and complex technical concepts to a variety of audiences.
  • Degree in CS/CE or other technical field, or equivalent experience as a software developer for consumer electronic devices or platform development.
  • Passion for music and home audio is a must!
