Job Description

You know the moment. It's the first notes of that song you love, the intro to your favorite movie, or simply the sound of someone you love saying "hello." It's in these moments that sound matters most.

At Bose, we believe sound is the most powerful force on earth. And we've dedicated ourselves to improving it for nearly 60 years. Ever since our founder, Dr. Amar Bose, bought a stereo system and thought, "I can make this better," we've been relentlessly pushing forward to the next best thing.

Innovation is more than what we do. It's who we are -constantly learning and constantly curious. We never stop imagining what better sound sounds like. We're music fanatics and audio engineers. We're explorers and inventors and dreamers. And we're passionate down to our bones about making whatever you're listening to a little more magical.


We're looking for students to join our Co-Op Program who are obsessively curious about 'what's next'. You'll get hands on experience with our products and learn from the best of the best in the business. You will immerse yourself into Bose for 6 months and get the opportunity to grow the skills your learned in the classroom with hands on work experience. By the time you end your time with us, you will have been given the opportunity to truly make a real impact in the future of Bose and your career!

Opportunities don't stop at your day-to-day work. While you're getting an in depth look at your area of expertise, we'll expose you to other areas of the company. Our Co-Ops are given the opportunity to connect with senior leadership across the business to understand different perspectives at Bose. You'll network with other Co-Ops and colleagues to grow your network for the future!

Timeframe - January-June 2023


This a hands-on opportunity where a co-op candidate will get real training and be integrated in the team, so we need a versatile and creative problem solver who can help us recruit, set up, and implement research studies, support detailed analysis, and assist in putting together presentations that directly help inform and influence Bose's product strategy and design.


  • Collaborate with multiple researchers and various cross-functional teams crafting new products and experiences in our Consumer Electronics division
  • Directly support researchers on learning how to select appropriate testing methods and outline useful study plans and protocols
  • Learn how to recruit and screen participants and other study logistics, such as using a usability lab

  • Gain experience working with researchers on analyzing and synthesizing data to deliver final reports with clear and compelling recommendations to cross-functional teams and business partners
  • Partner with other research peers on team initiatives to proactively ensure the User Research function continually evolves and improves its operational efficiency and effectiveness

  • BS/BA degree program or higher in a related field (Human Factors Engineering, Human-Computer Interaction, Behavior Sciences, Psychology, Product Design, etc.)
  • Proven written and verbal communication skills
  • Some level of technical proficiency
  • Ability to adapt to shifting priorities and timelines
  • Effective problem-solving and critical-thinking skills
  • Ability to be onsite a plus
