At Sonos, we're passionate about creating the finest HiFi audio experiences in the world for our customers.  Our web experience reflects this same passion.  It’s a place to learn about our products and interact with the Sonos community.  A place you want to keep coming back to; a place where you belong.

Come help us build out the next generation platform for the Sonos web experience.  You'll have a direct impact on the business, advancing a major component of our core strategy.  You’ll be making it easy for people to learn about our products, how to best use them, and remain connected to the community they love. You’ll be helping build the tools we use to keep our customers happy.

Apply your creativity and prodigious engineering skills to help design and build a globally scaled web experience showcasing Sonos products.  You’ll make them beautiful on the desktop, on mobile phones, on tablets, on everything.  You'll work across team and discipline boundaries.  You’ll be free to do what you do best.

We all know that going fast means doing things right the first time.  Sonos is looking for an individual to help build out our next generation automated testing framework to ensure that our web properties are right and our pace is fast.  An engineer with a bent for testing.  Someone with a passion for quality and a thirst for correctness.
