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.

What You’ll Do
You love to rapidly create prototypes to design and develop innovative experiences. You develop user interfaces for iOS and/or Android and/or Raspberry Pi using Swift, Objective C, React Native, or any other tools that allow you to prototype and iterate quickly. You are not a stranger to a soldering iron or a 3D printer, hot glue or chewing gum if that’s what it takes to build a physical object to test an idea.

You’ll work with user experience designers and engineers to hack together first iterations of Sonos' next generation of products and experiences, and you’ll put your ideas in front of real users to see what they think.

Skills You’ll Need
• Experience developing iOS, Android, or web interfaces 
• Experience prototyping embedded solutions on Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or similar 
• Experience with CAD tools and 3D printing desirable
• Able to adapt to and accommodate uncertainty
• Comfortable with rapid iteration and experimentation
• Solid teamwork skills 
• Solid communications skills 

More About Sonos

In 2002, Sonos set out to reinvent the way people listen at home. The wireless home sound system we created makes it easier than ever to fill any and every room with music, podcasts, TV, and just about anything else you could ever want to hear-all with brilliant, immersive clarity. Since then millions of people in over 60 countries have made Sonos part of their lives.

Today we remain focused on innovation, thoughtfully designing products, inventing new technologies, expanding our software platform, crafting the best sound experience and making a positive social impact in the world.

We're empowering people to listen better because listening builds understanding and drives change. It even increases happiness and brings people together. Simply put, listening leads to a better life. (We've got the data to prove it.)
