Slack is looking for an engineering manager to help lead the Client Capabilities Mobile team. This cross-functional team is responsible for the product architecture and UI components of our Android and iOS apps. In addition to leading the growth and output of the team, the manager of this team will work closely with other engineering managers, product managers and designers to define and drive best practices across all of our Mobile platforms.

The capabilities team makes cross-cutting changes that span across all or multiple product features in Slack. You’ll accomplish this by shipping new functionality, building shared components, and helping to shepherd the overall app architecture. Your code will enable safer, faster development of more sophisticated features in the Slack clients. Use your deep understanding of building and scaling teams and applications to make the Slack experience the best it can possibly be.

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?
