We’re looking for an experienced Frontend Software Engineer to join our fast-growing Demo Engineering organization.

Demo Engineering is a product development team that empowers our company to articulate Slack’s vision and product value to our largest prospects, customers, and conference attendees. We build tools that enable various teams at Slack to create transformative product demos, quickly and easily. Simply put, we make the experience of creating Slack demos simpler, more pleasant, and more productive.

In this role, you’ll use your deep expertise in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to build internal tools that will be used by Slack teams globally; anybody with a need to demo at Slack will be using your tooling to demonstrate the transformative value of our product.

  • You’ll actively own team features or systems and define their long-term health
  • You’ll collaborate with Backend Demo Engineers to spec, write, test, and deploy code that integrates with our databases and various API endpoints
  • You’ll review code, have your code reviewed, and assist in triaging bugs
  • You’ll work cross-functionally to ensure that upcoming Slack features are demo-ready
  • You’ll improve our standards, tooling, and processes

What you should have:

If you don’t meet 100% of these requirements, don't worry. Your desire to learn and your ability to work in a diverse, collaborative environment is just as important to us.

  • Experience building web applications professionally for 2+ years
  • Experience building responsive layouts with CSS and HTML
  • Experience writing client-side JavaScript
  • Experience with React
  • Experience writing understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability
  • Familiarity navigating API’s
  • A love for design and building from scratch; problem-solving is in your DNA
  • Strong UX and design sensibilities and an interest in sweating the small stuff
  • You are a strong communicator; explaining complex technical concepts to others is no problem for you
  • Self-­awareness, a collaborative approach, and empathy
  • You have a bachelor’s degree or related field, equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience

Bonus points if you have:

  • Knowledge of Slack API’s
  • Experience working on consumer-facing products
