Department: Design and Creative

Location: Seattle

Req#: 5648

Sonos is focused on helping people listen better to live better.  We’re looking for a talented product designer to bring craft and tight execution to our experiences on the iOS and Android platforms. You’ll use your full range of skills from product design, interaction design, and visual design, and you’ll do this with a growing team of talented designers, product managers, developers and researchers. You’ll be working closely with developers and your designer peers to ensure our users are provided with a seamless, logical and delightful experience. 
About You

More than a candidate that checks every box, we’re looking for people who are excited to work, learn, and grow at Sonos—no matter their background or how they identify. If that’s you, we hope you’ll apply for this role.

You want to be part of a team.

You come with new ideas and a unique point of view. You look forward to collaborating with a diverse team of individuals. You assume everyone’s best intentions, welcome a healthy debate, and embrace differing opinions. You eagerly seek and give help. Transparency tops your list of values, and 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 comfortable making mistakes because you learn from them and bounce back quickly. You would rather create the future than wait for it. You prioritize long-term value over short-term objectives.

You love to listen.

You approach every interaction with curiosity and a desire to understand. You want to make a positive impact in the world. You’re passionate about culture and know the power that music, film, podcasts, games, and stories have to bring people together.

What You’ll Do
  • Work collaboratively with designers, product managers, and developers to define and build new experiences in our app, and improve existing ones.
  • Create high-fidelity experience flow specifications, considering the visual aesthetics,  using Figma, Abstract, Sketch and Zeplin, capturing flow specifics, states, edge-cases, “unhappy paths” and path logic.
  • Create prototypes to support user research and inform the development of Sonos experiences.
  • Understand, leverage, apply and extend our visual design system to deliver a consistent and rich app experience.
  • Collaborate deeply with the development side and craft technically mindful experiences. 
  • Apply existing experience and interaction patterns, along with creating new ones based on user needs. 
  • Ideate, create, and document user flows and patterns in the app experience to make our products delightful to our users, and clear to our development team.
  • Produce and deliver developer-facing documentation specs.
  • Think at a hardware platform level and apply seamless software experience design (user-flows, wireframes, specifications) across a portfolio of devices with differing technical needs.

Skills You’ll Need
Basic:

  • You have 4+ years of hands-on digital product design experience delivering apps and software within an agile team environment.
  • You’re effective throughout the entire product development process, from problem definition through to detailed UI visual implementation, and are able to contextualize your contribution to the bigger user experience picture.
  • You have experience with design and technologies for iOS, Android, crafting experiences for mobile, tablet, and desktop.
  • You’ve worked with design systems before to create consistently high quality experiences.
  • You’re dedicated to the craft, and have created high fidelity design using Abstract, Sketch, Zeplin, Figma, Adobe XD etc.
  • You’ve created detailed interactive prototypes using Invision, Figma, Flinto, Principle, Adobe XD, Framer, etc.
  • You’re an excellent communicator of design work and your rationale behind proposals. You can communicate complex ideas to the team and stakeholders. You’ve got experience using Jira and Confluence.
  • You’re focused on the listener. You’re curious. You enjoy supporting stakeholder interviews and user research, and integrating findings into final designs.
  • You own the success or failure of design work and have found solutions to improve shipped work.

Preferred:

  • You’ve worked on experiences or systems that combine hardware and software.
  • You understand and appreciate motion design.
  • You have experience working with distributed teams and understand the sensibilities and responsibility that come with it.
