If you are interested in joining the Sonos store in New York City in the future, read on! We are looking to build up a group of talented, musical store associates we can rely on during peak periods and holidays. We are especially looking for people who can be available 2 days in the weekend.

At Sonos, we believe in the experience and our standard is ultimate. That's the vision that drives every product we design. Every choice we make. Everything we do. Including the intent, design and purpose of our first-ever Sonos retail store.

As a Band Mate for Sonos' flagship retail shop in Soho, NY, you'll be a critical member of store team. Your mission: to support each guest's personal journey to Sonos believership - converting every encounter into an ongoing relationship that continues to grow each time they engage with Sonos. Much like our products, we want every guest relationship to keep getting better over time, and you'll directly influence those relationships through the in-store experience.

Nothing brings the power of Sonos to life like a mind-blowing, hands-on demo. It's by far the most inspiring way to showcase our amazingly integrated listening experience and help guests quickly grasp what Sonos can bring to their homes and their lives. This is what the store is designed to deliver.

About You

Our band is large. And while there's plenty of room for all kinds of personalities and skill sets to succeed, there are certain qualities that will help you thrive here.

Like a never-accept-less work ethic. An exceptionally low ego-to-talent ratio (none of the first, tons of the latter). A relentless craving to push past your limits and try new things. The smarts and the humble confidence to take on big challenges, make mistakes fast and early, embrace tough feedback, then recover quickly with fresh, startlingly perfect solutions. A fearless willingness to defend great work. And a tendency to totally geek out on music.

If this sounds like you, read on and let's connect soon.
