Slack is looking for Staff Backend Machine Learning Engineers to build features, design and implement API methods, and improve the performance and reliability of our machine learning infrastructure as we rapidly scale our product and organization.
Machine learning is an important and growing area of investment, and, in this role, you’ll be making some of the most significant engineering decisions for the company.
We build Slack using reliable tools that our team knows and trusts, including PHP / Hack, Java / Scala, Python, MySQL, and Linux.
Experience with Apache Spark, Hadoop (or other Map-Reduce frameworks), and Airflow (or other scheduling tools like Luigi) is a huge plus.

end, iOS, Android, automation, and quality engineers to make Slack a better product. We are looking for engineers who understand that simplicity and reliability are aspects of a system to be carefully calculated with every decision made, and who understand how to turn data and math into customer value.
