Talent Network

Test Manager, Developer Integrations (Seattle)

Department: Software

Location: Seattle

Req#: 3075

We are passionate about creating the finest Smart Speaker System in the world. Our products fill people’s homes with pure, immersive sound by streaming all their favorite music to any room, or every room. And they play, control and explore it all with one simple app.

Sonos anticipated the migration to streaming music way back in 2002. Today, streaming accounts for more music listening and purchases than all physical media combined, and this trend is accelerating. We are uniquely positioned to take advantage of this revolution. There has never been a better time in history to be into music - both as a consumer and as a business. 

A key element of our future strategy is empowering third party developers to create innovative experiences on the Sonos system. New visions of Music Services, Home Theater, Home Automation and more will challenge us to maintain the high quality for which Sonos is renowned.

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.

What You’ll Do

As the Test Manager, you will lead the team that ensures that these new applications and integrations meet the Sonos quality bar and deliver excellent experiences to our owners. You will establish and evolve the test process, grow the test suites, and schedule and execute the work through your team. In addition, this person will maintain transparency regarding the progress of test cycles as well as the level of quality delivered by our partners. Much of your work as a quality advocate will be accomplished through influencing your partners from Development, Product Management and UX. You will also work closely with third party developers to help them understand requirements, the test process and results from test cycles.

The Test Manager will be expected to lead the team as a hands-on technical expert while also driving test and automation strategy decisions. You must inspire the team with a personal passion for detail and a culture that strives for increasingly higher levels of fit and finish. You will act as an influential leader of quality at Sonos by upholding these high standards in your team’s day to day work, as well as at critical milestones when you will be ultimately responsible for deciding if the software is ready to deliver to the user community.

We expect rapid growth in the applications delivered by our development partners. It will be critical to develop a vision and strategy for scaling your team to ensure rapid turnaround. You must attract top talent while at the same time knitting together geographically separated groups into a cohesive team. Hiring is a high priority for this role, and it is important that you enjoy meeting talented people, assessing their skills, and educating them about careers at Sonos.

Skills You’ll Need
  • 6+ years in SW testing or development, preferably in consumer applications or consumer electronics.
  • 2+ years in a leadership role.
  • Experience with multi-layer, cloud-based web services (AWS preferred); load/perf/scale testing is a plus.
  • Experience with API integrations.
  • BS/BA in Computer Science, Software Engineering or equivalent.
