Req#: 4528

Sonos will accept internship resume submissions through Spring 2019, at which time candidates will be invited to interview with us for internships beginning in Summer 2019

Sonos is currently recruiting PhD candidates for an internship on the Smart Audio and Voice Team. As the Speech + Audio Research Intern, you'll help us pioneer the way we think about smart audio and voice control. Use your knowledge of statistical signal processing and machine learning to re-imagine how we listen to and control our music experiences.

The team is currently involved in improving the current voice and audio solutions that can be found in, e.g., the recently launched Sonos One>.

About You

You're not like everyone else.

You bring a unique perspective to the table. Transparency tops your list of values.

Your smarts and creativity are off the charts, matched only by your humility. You want to collaborate with a team of diverse talent. You proactively contribute to a culture of respect and inclusion.

You enjoy a challenge.

Inquisitive and focused, you see every challenge as an opportunity. You're ambitious and unafraid to make mistakes because you learn from them and bounce back quickly.

You don't stop until you get it right. "Impossible" isn't in your vocabulary. You're more interested in creating the future than waiting for it.

You love to listen.

You start every interaction from a place of listening and seeking to understand. You're culturally connected.

You remember your first concert. You can readily recommend a binge-worthy show on Netflix, Hulu or HBO. You can't sit in traffic without a great audiobook, podcast or album.

You can make a killer playlist. Your idea of a good weekend includes watching a movie or playing a video game.

What You'll Do

Ideally, you will have a background in the following disciplines:

  • Speech enhancement (microphone arrays, noise reduction, linear and nonlinear echo cancellation)
  • Speech classification (speech recognition, speaker identification, keyword spotting)
  • Classification of acoustic scenes and events

Alternatively, we will also consider candidates with a strong background in acoustical signal processing for spatial audio enhancement and object-based audio reproduction.

The duration and period of the internship are flexible. The location is Santa Barbara, CA.

Skills You'll Need

  • PhD candidate preferred

  • Proficiency in advanced digital signal processing techniques for audio and speech enhancement and recognition

  • Proficiency with Matlab required

  • Familiarity with C/C++, Python, and ASR toolkits (e.g., Kaldi) preferred

  • Familiarity with deep learning tools (e.g., TensorFlow, Keras) preferred

  • Familiarity with basic concept of acoustics (e.g., room modeling, driver and microphone characteristics)

  • Passion for data-driven experimental analysis

How to Audition

First, we'll take a look at your online application and resume. Make sure to thoughtfully answer the application questions!

The questions will help us get to know you and your passions better be creative and let your personality shine through! If there's a match, we'll be in touch!
