Senior Software Product Manager - Voice/Smart Audio

Department: Product Management

Location: Boston, Santa Barbara

Req#: 2837

Sonos is looking for a collaborative, innovative product leader to help us create the best smart audio products in the world.

As a Software Product Manager, you will work with a talented and passionate team of audio engineers, researchers, software developers, designers, and other product managers both inside and outside of Sonos to turn innovative ideas into shipping products. You will both understand the limitations of what technology can do and challenge our engineers in areas where we can stretch to achieve more.

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
  • Guide and prioritize the work of agile software teams, and work with hardware Product Managers and Product Creation Leaders to define the technical software and hardware requirements needed to enable product experiences that consistently exceed expectations.
  • Responsible for influencing the strategy and evolution of the Sonos smart audio roadmap (including Audio DSP, Trueplay & Voice Capture) and handling day-to-day experience, cost, and execution tradeoffs.
  • Research, analyze, and forecast technology trends; identify and investigate opportunities to use new technologies and vendors to enable new and innovative user experiences; and work cross-functionally with your internal team and external partners to bring these experiences to realization.
  • Work with user experience and research teams to ensure an outstanding Sonos experience across the entire ecosystem of products.
  • Define, track and maintain experience and quality metrics and goals for audio system performance.
Skills You’ll Need

  • You have demonstrated experience as a cross-functional leader driving the creation of successful, technically innovative software and/or hardware products – your ability to work across teams in a positive and collaborative way is key. 
  • Prior experience as a software product manager or product development leader is applicable to this role.
  • You are not afraid of the new and unknown; you know what you don’t know and you have a passion for asking questions, learning new things, and putting that knowledge to use.
  • You have excellent written and oral communication skills, with the ability to articulate both business/user value and complex technical concepts to a variety of audiences.
  • Experience applying agile methodologies and experience as a Product Owner is highly desired.
  • You have an educational background in or working familiarity with digital signal processing, machine learning or acoustics.
  • A passion for music and a demonstrated commitment to making – and shipping – outstanding products is a must.
