Senior Software Engineer, iOS Application Infrastructure - Slack (remote)
We are looking for people who are passionate about building strong, sustainable infrastructure for the Slack iOS client.
Slack on iOS is used by millions of people every week. We need infrastructure engineers who will support development of our iOS client by helping build out solid foundations from networking and data persistence to user interface and app performance. We’re looking for engineers who are either generalists across all those areas, or who specialize in data/networking infrastructure. The iOS infrastructure team supports development across the entire organization to ensure that we’re delivering a highly performant and robust app to our users.
As an infrastructure engineer, 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 derive joy from mentoring and growing other iOS engineers. 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.
