Staff Software Engineer, AV

Slack is looking for Staff Software Engineers to build our next generation of audio / video communication and collaboration features. The focus is building new product capabilities that make Slack feel like the essential digital replacement for the physical office as the world rapidly moves to (hybrid) remote work. This is the biggest opportunity to invent the future of work since we first launched Slack. In this role you’ll be working with a very talented team of engineers, designers and product owners to make this happen.

The jobs are clear for the unbundled physical office: ad hoc collaboration, alignment, serendipitous connections, and ambient awareness. These are the jobs Slack is poised to become essential for, since Slack already brings together everyone you work with into channels for every team, project, event, and customer.

That’s where you hopefully come in! 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. Let us know if this sounds like a good fit for you.
