Job Details

This is a general job posting. We are hiring at the Senior and Staff levels.


Slack is looking for Backend Engineers to build features, design and implement API methods, and improve the performance and reliability of our systems as we rapidly scale our product and organization.We have backend engineers in almost every team across Slack, and in that role, you'll be making some of the most significant decisions for the team
.

We build our app using reliable tools that our team knows and trusts, including PHP/Hack, Java, MySQL, and Linux. Expertise in these areas is a huge plus, but having familiarity with other common web languages (such as Python or Ruby) and other relational databases are fine substitutes. We're a collaborative team who genuinely enjoys working together with a cross-functional team of product managers, designers, frontend, iOS, Android, automation, and quality engineers to make Slack a better product. We are looking for engineers that understand that simplicity and reliability are aspects of a system to be carefully calculated with every decision made.

What you will be doing

  • You'll brainstorm with Product Managers, Designers and Frontend Engineers to conceptualize and build new features for our large (and growing!) user base.

  • You'll produce high-quality results by leading or contributing heavily to large cross-functional projects that have a significant impact on the business.

  • You'll actively own features or systems and define their long-term health, while also improving the health of surrounding systems.

  • You'll assist our skilled support team and operations team in triaging and resolving production issues.

  • You'll mentor other engineers and deeply review code.

  • You'll improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes

What you should have

  • You've been building web applications professionally for 4-15+ years.

  • You have experience with functional or imperative programming languages - e.g., PHP, Python, Ruby, Go, C, or Java.

  • You can lead technical architecture discussions and help drive technical decisions within your team.

  • You write understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability.

  • You are a strong communicator. Explaining complex technical concepts to designers, support, and other engineers is no problem for you.

  • You possess strong computer science fundamentals: data structures, algorithms, programming languages, distributed systems, and information retrieval.

  • You have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience.


    For Colorado-based roles: Minimum annual salary of $82,000-$230,000. You may also be entitled to receive bonus, restricted stock units, and benefits.

    • LI-Y
