Sonos is seeking a senior level Electrical Engineer to join its team of highly motivated, collaborative Electrical Engineers that are responsible for both Analog and Digital development and design. This team is responsible for the development of electronic circuits for our next generation audio products. For this position, you will be focused on the digital side of the electronic product development, and should therefore have a thorough understanding of low voltage, high speed (GHz) digital design, although you’ll also be engaged in electronic design for mixed signal and power circuitry. You’ll have the opportunity to have broad engagement across the entire product development organization, with the goal of delivering leading edge audio products for home and beyond. Our team encompasses a dynamic workspace, can-do attitude, and a passion for delivering the absolute best products in their class.

This position can be based either in our Santa Barbara or Boston office. Relocation is available.

What You’ll Do

  • Develop and design digital electronic circuits for new audio products 

  • Learn and bring in new digital technologies to Sonos product development team

  • Advance the simulation and test methodology of digital design

  • Ensure design compliance with all industry standards and regulatory requirements including EMC

  • Work cooperatively across multiple disciplines in a fast-paced environment to achieve successful end results

What You’ll Need
