I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Sonos (Santa Barbara, CA) in June 2015.
The initial call was with a Sonos recruiter to determine overall fit for the position. From there I did a phone interview with the hiring manager for the team, who asked a mixture of questions on both my background and my technical experience. Based on that phone conversation I was invited to interview on-site. I had hour-long conversations with six senior engineers and project managers. Half of the interviews were teleconference sessions with engineers in Cambridge, MA. It was quite a marathon, but I had a fun time talking with the team. In the end I wasn't a great fit for the position, so I was not extended an offer. Still, I felt the entire interview process was well-orchestrated and very professional. Any questions I had were promptly answered and any concerns, such as not contacting my current employer, were quickly addressed. Every member of the Sonos team that I interacted with was incredibly friendly. I do wish there was a different outcome, but I feel that I was evaluated fairly and genuinely respected at all times.
