Job Details

We are looking for people who are passionate about building strong, sustainable infrastructure for the Slack android client.

Slack on android is used by millions of people every week. We need infrastructure engineers who will support development of our android 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 either UI or data/networking infrastructure. The android 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 android 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 android 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. You are self-directed, innovative, and biased towards action in fast-paced environments. You love to build new things and thrive in ambiguity and even failure.

What You Should Have:

  • 7+ years of working experience in android development
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience
  • Experience developing with Kotlin
  • Knowledge of common mobile design patterns like MVP, MVVM, MVI, etc.
  • Experience using standard concepts and technologies such as Asynchronous Programming (RxJava or Coroutines), Dagger2, OkHttp3, Retrofit
  • Experience with profiling UI, memory and threading in Android
  • Familiarity with API design and developing self-documenting, reusable components
  • Experience using monitoring and metrics to support KPIs and performance
  • Experience developing highly performant code and the ability to diagnose performance bottlenecks
  • A disciplined approach to development, testing, documentation and code structure in a team environment
  • An interest in guiding, influencing, and growing other android engineers and teams
  • A familiarity with the android tool ecosystem for development, testing, debugging, and performance benchmarking
  • An understanding of how to measure impact of your work and how it translates to the business
  • 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 android community
  • Experience working in Jetpack Compose
