We’re looking for a software engineer who can work collaboratively on a fast-paced team, wants to own their projects end to end, and can find creative solutions to solve hard customer problems.

In this role you’ll work closely with Mattermost’s top customers to design, build and ship bespoke features and integrations that help them get the most out of Mattermost.
