Voice Data Scientist

Req#: 2900

At Sonos, we're passionate about bringing music into every home.  To fulfill this mission, we have developed an unquenchable thirst for data.  We use data to understand how our products are performing, which features need to be improved, design future products, and learn how our customers experience music in their homes.  If you like music and data, this is a dream job.

In the Voice Data Scientist role, you will gather and analyze data related to the voice recognition performance of Sonos products.  You’ll use data to learn how customers use (or want to use) voice and drive towards meaningful product improvements. As a member of the Voice Quality team, you will work tirelessly to build and maintain an industry-leading voice recognition experience for Sonos customers.

The ideal candidate is a creative and passionate problem-solver who thinks big and is motivated to improve products using quantitative techniques. 

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
  • Work with engineering teams to define, capture, and analyze data for improving end-user voice recognition experiences
  • Develop automated analysis toolchains for tracking performance and quality metrics over time
  • Lead data-driven product improvement efforts
  • Communicate insights and recommend areas for further data discovery

Skills You’ll Need
  • Graduate degree in Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, or equivalent
  • 2+ years’ experience applying statistical data analysis to real-world problems
  • Fluent in machine learning algorithms
  • Proficient with statistical analysis tools (Python experience preferred)
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills – the ability to present data and analysis in a way that doesn’t require a statistical background to understand
