Mission: Fill every home with music by creating the ultimate in-home music experience.
We're delighting the world with new stuff on a frequent basis. I'm really looking forward to doing that & making sure we're filling a lot more homes with music. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQXU6
Sonos Product Manager Joni Hoadley is this week's guest on 100productmanagers podcast talking about letting your passion lead your path (in her case that passion is music.) http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQnPn
In 2002, we set out with a goal – to reinvent home audio for the digital age. Our vision was simple - fill every home with music and make listening a valued experience again. We’re making it easy for everybody to listen to the music they love in every room of their home. To hear the songs they love, to discover new music they never knew existed, and to appreciate it all with the highest sound quality.
We’re doing it all over the world – In more than 60 countries, in seven languages through thousands of retailers. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve the experience – with new products, new software and continually investing in ways to provide our customers the best experience possible. We’re doing what we set out to do. Changing the way people listen to music – one home at a time.
Sonos is the smart speaker system that streams all your favorite music to any room, or every room. Control your music with one simple app, and fill your home with pure, immersive sound.
We’re looking for college students who love music. Who are passionate about the way the world listens to music at home. And want to make sure it sounds as good as when the artist recorded it.
We’re true music lovers too. And we’re committed to harnessing the sonic power and smarts of engineering and software. All with the goal of creating the ultimate listening experience.
Have a technical brain? An artistic imagination? Entrepreneur’s courage? Then come audition for our band.
I have been working at Sonos full-time (More than 5 years)
Great products, many challenging problems to work on. Awesome brand reputation. There is still a bit of a startup feel with a good work-life balance.
Rapidly growing company comes with some growing pains. If you don't have an appetite for a constantly changing environment, this place may not be right for you. As the company gets bigger, it can he harder to get things done.
Advice to Management
Keep working hard to preserve the right balance between exiting startup culture and sustainable growth environment.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sonos (Boston, MA).
The interview process was certainly tough however, extremely enjoyable. Process started with an application for a position that Sonos was no longer filling however, I was reached out to by Jenn informing me that she would love to chat about the position it turned into. From there was a video interview via Zoom with my now supervisor which led to an on-site interview from 10A-4P. This seems like a long day however, the atmosphere and the team made the day breeze by without it even feeling like an interview. Sonos is very big on culture and celebrates diversity which is something that is absolutely paramount to me in a business.
Overall, the process took about 3 weeks from initial contact, phone screen, video interview, on-site, reference check to offer.
