Sonos, the company that brought us one of the best whole-house wireless music systems ever, seems to be eying the home theater market.

The company is hiring a senior product manager, home theater sound.

From the Careers section of

Sonos is looking for a successful, experienced home entertainment product leader to help us re-invent home theater sound for the digital age.  We are looking for someone with a passion for home theater sound who wants to drive new concepts into a shipping reality.

You will lead the product vision and lead new product creation teams.  You will create and evangelize new home theater products and drive them through development.  If you are passionate about music and movies, you’ll quickly see that this is a tremendous opportunity to shape the future of connected home entertainment.  Take a look at our recent products – including the S5, our recently announced iPad app, and our expanding suite of supported online music services – then help us create what’s next.

If Sonos is getting into the wireless surround sound business … Booya!

Plenty of solutions exist today, but none has the cachet of Sonos.

Perhaps, the new senior product manager will help to create something like these Sonos-powered speakers that never made it to market.

Looking for a really cool job in the streaming audio market? The Sonos job calls for someone with an “affinity for and knowledge of home theater, digital music, and streaming content.”

The position is based in Cambridge, Mass. or Santa Barbara, Calif.
