Job Description

We’re looking for people who are passionate about crafting phenomenal iOS applications.

You’ve been around for a few Xcode releases and you know how to delight iOS users. You’ve got an eye for the beautiful design our users expect and an attention to detail down to the very last pixel. You know your way around UIKit and architecture patterns and are eager to partner with Product and Design to craft efficient, performant, and delightful user experiences. You like building for the long term and value patterns and structures that allow for maximum flexibility in a constantly evolving product.

You excel in leading others and mentoring and growing other iOS engineers is something you are passionate about. You set a high bar for the technical design and code quality of your team. You demonstrate exceptional ownership of not only the area of your team, but across Slack’s entire iOS codebase. You have a “can do” demeanor and nothing is beneath you or outside your responsibilities because you do what it takes to deliver the highest quality code and the most impactful features. 

As an iOS Product Engineer, you will work with a cross-disciplinary team, using your knowledge of building applications to make the Slack experience on iOS be the best it can possibly be. Slack on iOS is used by millions of people every week - we need engineers who want to make that experience as pleasant as possible.

What you should have

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience
  • 8+ years of practical experience in iOS product development 
  • Experience working closely with product teams, designers, and other developers to create a truly delightful mobile experience
  • Experience developing highly performant code and view layouts and the ability to diagnose performance bottlenecks
  • A disciplined approach to development, testing, documentation and code structure in a team environment
  • An excellent approach to guiding, influencing, and growing other iOS engineers and teams
  • Extensive understanding of the Cocoa framework
  • A familiarity with the iOS tool ecosystem for development, testing, debugging, and performance benchmarking
  • An excellent understanding of standard methodologies for concurrency and threading
  • A constant desire to improve, learn more and take things higher

Bonus Points

  • Experience using Slack and a keen interest in making it better
  • A passion for building and maintaining excellent open source projects or otherwise contributing to the iOS community
  • Experience developing with Swift

 

Slack has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, collaborative.
