First impressions are critical.  On the Setup & Configuration Core team you’ll help create the experience customers use to quickly and reliably connect the smartest speakers on the planet to streaming music services, voice services and other devices in the home.  It’s a complex technology stack that integrates components from the hardware, security, player, network, wireless, and cloud teams.  

As a senior tester in this central role, you’ll need to dig deep to understand the entire Sonos ecosystem to influence design, quality and testability decisions that affect the out of box customer experience.  If you love music, solving challenging integration problems and delivering high-quality products, we want to talk with you!

About You

You're not like everyone else.

You bring a unique perspective to the table. Transparency tops your list of values. Your smarts and creativity are off the charts, matched only by your humility. You want to collaborate with a team of diverse talent. 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 unafraid to make mistakes because you learn from them and bounce back quickly. You don't stop until you get it right. "Impossible" isn't in your vocabulary. You're more interested in creating the future than waiting for it.

You love to listen.

You start every interaction from a place of listening and seeking to understand. You're culturally connected. You remember your first concert. You can readily recommend a binge-worthy show on Netflix, Hulu or HBO. You can't sit in traffic without a great audiobook, podcast or album. You can make a killer playlist. Your idea of a good weekend includes watching a movie or playing a video game.

  • Contribute testability improvements to new specifications
  • Use your experience to improve the customer experience
  • Design an effective manual and automated test approach

  • A background using python or similar scripting language
