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 are looking for people who are passionate about crafting phenomenal iOS applications.

You’ve been around for a few Xcode releases and you know how to delight iOS users. You’ve got an eye for the beautiful design our users expect and an attention to detail down to the very last pixel. You know your way around UIKit and architecture patterns and are eager to partner with Product and Design to craft efficient, performant, and delightful user experiences.

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

As a Staff iOS 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 iOS 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.

What You Should Have

  • 7+ years of working experience in iOS product development
  • 2+ years of relevant management experience
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience
  • Experience developing with Swift
  • Experience working closely with product teams, designers, and other developers to create a truly delightful mobile experience
  • Experience developing highly performant 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
  • Experience in technical leadership and people management
  • An excellent approach to guiding, influencing, and growing other iOS engineers and teams
  • Extensive understanding of the Cocoa framework
  • A familiarity with the iOS tool ecosystem for development, testing, debugging, and performance benchmarking
  • An excellent understanding of standard methodologies 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
  • A passion for building and maintaining excellent open source projects or otherwise contributing to the iOS community
  • Experience as an Engineer Manager
