At Sonos, we're
passionate about creating the finest HiFi audio experiences in the world for
our customers. Our partners share our passion and build compelling
experiences that showcase their ingenuity alongside our own.
The lever that moves
this world: our platform. Come help us test the next generation IoT platform
and API for controlling the Sonos system as part of a smart, Internet-connected
You'll have a direct
impact on the business, advancing a major component of our core strategy, and
unlocking novel ways to control a Sonos system, such as voice and 3rd party
apps. As a member of the Foundation Services Test Team your role will be
to help build the cloud-based micro-services that ensure our customers can
create and manage their accounts, register their devices, and access Sonos and
third party cloud services. You'll also get to work on key technology like our
firmware update service. Our goal is to ensure that we can rapidly release
services confidently and support them easily.
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.

tests cover as much as possible while being as lean as possible.

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.
