Go-To-Market (GTM) is a team of highly analytical thinkers and creative visionaries responsible for bringing Sonos to life all over the world through stories and experiences. Working cross functionally to ensure we build a brand that matters, they develop strategies to optimize profitable growth through our direct digital business, owned retail stores and wholesale partners; devise cutting-edge, award-winning campaigns to coincide with product launches; and support experiences on the ground that showcase the benefits of listening better.
