We’re a product-first company, but we’re far from traditional. Our work environment is dynamic, empowering and exciting. And that’s not code for demanding, thankless and overwhelming. We work together in order to work smarter, we inspire each other to be better, and we never forget that every member of the team is responsible for our success.


With over 50 employees in Los Angeles and Copenhagen, SOUNDBOKS is equal parts seasoned professionals and passionate unconventionals. We’ve got an awesome thing going, and it’s only getting better.

  • Develop quality improvement initiatives in collaboration with other key stakeholders
  • Address DFM risks and design challenges from a quality perspective
  • Secure that all product and production specifications are documented and adhering to internal/external requirements incl. quality standards

In addition to fulfilling a central role in the Supply Chain Team, your job will encompass continuous cross-departmental collaboration with other SOUNDBOKS teams, which will require excellent communication skills, and the capacity to act as the technical anchor point for securing certification and compliance for our product portfolio through our partners.


The ideal candidate should be proactive, structured and have a hands-on approach for securing all details. Further, a solid understanding of what it takes to build a world class QA Setup and have the tenacity to follow up through an analytical and operational mindset.


The following skills and experience are preferred:

  • Experience with QA programs from a production environment and/or suppliers 
  • Strong background in utilizing quality methodologies for achieving defined quality level and/or quality improvements
  • Experience with quality standards, e.g. IPC-A-610 Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies

  • Experience with Six Sigma incl. LEAN principles
  • Has the ability to set the right balance between quality and efficiency while we make room for new product initiatives
  • Experience with Chinese Manufacturers
  • Professional English proficiency

With us you get more than a paycheck, you get to become part of a team that stands on each other’s shoulders in pursuit of a shared vision. We do not care what you look like, if you are introvert or extrovert, or if you dress up squirrels as a side business. However, we do care greatly that you are confident in your own capacity, willing to push beyond your comfort zone, and believe in a collective approach to success. Intrigued? We would love to hear from you!
