About Salesforce

We’re Salesforce, the Customer Company, inspiring the future of business with AI+ Data +CRM. Leading with our core values, we help companies across every industry blaze new trails and connect with customers in a whole new way. And, we empower you to be a Trailblazer, too — driving your performance and career growth, charting new paths, and improving the state of the world. If you believe in business as the greatest platform for change and in companies doing well and doing good – you’ve come to the right place.

We're looking for people who are passionate about crafting phenomenal Android applications.

You've been around for a few API levels and you know how to delight Android users. You've got an eye for the alluring Android design our users expect and an attention to detail down to the very last density independent pixel. You know your way around the View hierarchy and are eager to partner with Product and Design to craft efficient, performant, and delightful user experiences. You like building for the long term and value patterns and structures that allow for maximum flexibility in a constantly evolving product.

We are looking for feature, infrastructure, and performance engineers to take our Slack Android app to the next level. As a Staff Android Technical Leader Manager (TLM), you will work with a cross-disciplinary team, using your extensive knowledge of building applications across a wide array of Android devices to make the Slack experience on Android be the best it can possibly be. Slack on Android is used by millions of people every week - we need engineers who want to make that experience as enjoyable as possible.

As a Staff Android TLM 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 a small team (~3-4 engineers) through mentoring them to develop into technical leaders. 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.

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.

What You Should Have:

  • At least 7+ years of mobile engineering experience, ideally in a team environment
  • At least 2+ years of relevant management experience
  • A related technical degree required.
  • Experience developing with Kotlin
  • Extensive understanding of Android framework components and their respective lifecycles
  • Strong computer science fundamentals: data structures, algorithms and programming languages
  • Experience in technical leadership and people management
  • Experience working closely with product teams, designers, and other developers to create a truly delightful mobile experience
  • Current and detailed knowledge of the capabilities of different Android API levels
  • Experience developing highly performant Java code and view layouts and the ability to diagnose performance bottlenecks
  • A disciplined approach to development, testing, documentation and code structure in a team environment
  • A familiarity with the Android tool ecosystem for development, testing, debugging, and performance benchmarking
  • An excellent understanding of best practices for concurrency and threading
  • A constant desire to improve, learn more and take things higher


Bonus Points

  • Experience using Slack and a keen interest in making it better
  • Experience building design systems to create reusable and scalable components
  • A passion for creating accessible applications
  • A passion for building and maintaining great open source projects or otherwise contributing to the Android community
  • Experience with reactive programming (e.g. RXJava)
  • Experience as an Engineer Manager
