Sr. Software Developer in Test
Location: Boston, Seattle
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 and partnerships we build on top of that platform. Be part of the team building and integrating the next generation IoT platform, API, and developer portal for controlling the Sonos system to bring these experiences to smart, internet-connected homes.
You'll have a direct impact on the business, advancing a major component of our core strategy, and unlocking innovative ways to control a Sonos system, such as voice and 3rd party apps.
As a member of the Quality Team your role will be to help build the cloud-based microservices, player APIs, and developer portal that ensure our customers and partners can create custom integrations with Sonos and access Sonos and third party services. Our goal is to ensure that we can rapidly release with high quality, iterate confidently and support our customers easily.
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.
