Job description

Slack’s Build and Release team makes the build and release of native client software fast and enjoyable for our developers. We maintain the tools and infrastructure that keep our iOS, and Android apps building reliably and releasing frequently. We produce reliable, scalable infrastructure and enable the engineering teams building all of these applications to deliver feature after feature with confidence. This team works closely with other teams across the company with the sole mission of making Slack the best place in the world to develop desktop and mobile applications. 

You should have familiarity with most of the target platforms but experience authoring or building software on each one is not expected. Instead, you should be able to research and experiment efficiently, have a bias towards automation, and a desire to make your fellow engineers more productive. 

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. If this sounds like a good fit for you, why not say hello? 

 What you will be doing 

  • Creating reliable, scalable infrastructure that enables mobile engineering teams to deliver features with confidence.
  • Automating the configuration of Linux and OSX build infrastructure 
  • Improve the reliability and performance of test and build processes
  • Automating the installation and upkeep of build tools and dependencies
  • Designing, coding and maintaining automated release process tools and infrastructure 
  • Improving the reliability and performance of test and build processes 
  • Collaborating with other teams to improve process and code 

What you should have 

  • You have a passion for building and distributing mobile applications
  • You have proficiency in programming languages like Python, Swift, Kotlin 
  • You have experience with Xcode and/or Android Studio
  • You have familiarity with submitting to app stores
  • You have experience configuring Linux and OSX systems
  • You are a strong communicator.
  • You are someone that others enjoy working with due to your positive attitude and technical competence 

Bonus Points

  • You have experience with public cloud, especially AWS
  • Familiarity with test automation
  • Experience developing distributed systems at scale
  • Experience creating web based dashboards
