Staff iOS Software Engineer, Accessibility



We're looking for people who are passionate about creating great accessible iOS applications.

You’ve been around for a few Xcode releases and you know how to delight iOS users. You’ve watched all of the WWDC A11y sessions and you’re passionate about building highly accessible experiences and helping others do the same. You like building for the long term and value patterns and structures that allow for maximum flexibility in a constantly evolving product.

As an iOS Engineer, you will work with a cross-functional team, using your extensive knowledge in iOS Accessibility APIs to make the Slack experience the best it can possibly be. You will also work within the wider iOS team to advise and evangelize for best A11y practices and help us maintain a strong and consistent accessible approach to mobile development.

You excel in leading others, and mentoring and growing other iOS engineers and accessibility evangelists is something you are passionate about. 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.
