This role can be done from home

This role can be done from anywhere in the United States- any of our offices, or remotely from home. It’s about impact, not location.


Sonos is focused on helping people listen better to live better.  We’re looking for a talented product designer to build new experiences that help our listeners set up and configure Sonos products and services as they create whole-house systems.

  • Work collaboratively with designers, product managers, and developers to define and build new setup and configuration experiences in our app, and improve existing ones.

  • Understand, leverage, and extend our visual design system to deliver a consistent and rich app experience.
  • Create prototypes to support user research and inform the development of Sonos experiences. 
  • Create compelling presentations and documentation that clearly and concisely communicate design work and your rationale behind proposals.

  • You’ve worked with design systems before to create consistently high quality experiences.
  • You’re effective throughout the entire product development process, from problem definition through to detailed UI and visual design.
  • You’re dedicated to craft, and have created high-fidelity design using Figma, Sketch, etc.
  • You’ve created detailed interactive prototypes using Figma, Framer, Invision, Flinto, Principle, etc.
  • You’re an excellent communicator of design work and your rationale behind proposals. You can communicate complex ideas to the team and stakeholders. You’ve got experience using Jira and Confluence.
  • You’re focused on the listener. You’re curious. You enjoy supporting stakeholder interviews and user research, and integrating findings into final designs.
  • You own the success or failure of design work and have found solutions to improve shipped work.


Bonus
