Req#: 3301

Sonos needs high-energy, innovative engineers to help fuel our rocketing success. We are setting new standards for the audio industry and reshaping the way consumers engage with music. As a Software Test Engineer for Applications in our System Test team, you will develop and drive effective test methods, processes, and suites for the applications that control our award-winning audio systems. The System Test team works in conjunction with feature development scrum teams to ensure that our products exceed customers’ expectations.

You will accomplish this by developing test coverage strategies across platforms and OS versions to ensure we find issues and prevent them from escaping to the field.

This position requires a passion for quality, an observant eye for bugs and UX, and strong technical skills.

If you love music, solving challenging problems and delivering high-quality products, we want to talk with you!
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.

  • Review requirements, behavior specifications, and design documents to begin test plan development early and continually improve our regression test plans.
  • Create test strategies to ensure our applications work flawlessly on every platform and OS we support.
  • Document all tests and procedures.
  • Help influence our test automation to improve testing efficiency and coverage.

Skills You’ll Need
  • BS/BA in Computer Science or Software Engineering, or equivalent experience.
  • At least 2 years of Software Test or SQA experience in an application development environment. Experience testing desktop or mobile applications across two or more platforms such as: Windows, Mac, iOS, or Android operating systems.
