Sonos is a sound experience company.

At Sonos we want to create the ultimate listening experience for our customers and know that it starts by listening to each other. As part of the Sonos team, you’ll collaborate with people of all styles, skill sets, and backgrounds to realize our vision while fostering a community where everyone feels included and empowered to do the best work of their lives.

“This role can be done from home: Building the world’s leading sound experience starts with the experience we provide for our people. That’s why we’ve been distributed from the start: initially between offices in Boston & Santa Barbara, and now with additional offices in Seattle, San Francisco & Paris. This role can be done from anywhere in the United States or Canada- any of our offices, or remotely from home. It’s about impact, not location.”

Sonos was founded on a belief that high-quality sound delivered seamlessly throughout your day can improve your life. This founding belief – that listening better can mean living better – motivates us now more than ever, as new technologies, particularly smart speakers, craft new experience possibilities in all aspects of daily lives. In creating the wireless home audio category over the past decade, we’ve also created a passionate fan base, one that deserves our assurance that the Sonos system is a personal and shared experience, individualized, and brings together artists and content to the people that love immersing their lives with it.

The Senior Product Manager, Cloud Platform is focused on building a vision of evolving Sonos’ Cloud Services to be the foundation of the Sonos ecosystem. You will work closely with the rest of the software platform team to create a vision and a roadmap of services and capabilities that provide comprehensive “cloud-first” functionality that powers all of the locations and households where our customers enjoy listening to their content through our players, including on-the-go and in commercial environments. You will build and evolve a platform to empower our internal Sonos developers as well as our ISVs to create premium Sonos experiences that leverage our cloud infrastructure. We strive to create services that are scalable, performant and easy to adopt.
