Slack

  • San Francisco, CA, USA

Slack is a collaboration hub for teamwork, where the right people are always kept in the loop and key information is always at their fingertips. Work in Slack happens in channels, so all the right people can be included,  all relevant information kept in one place, and new team members are able to get up to speed easily. With Slack, teams are better connected.

Smart, hardworking, humble, collaborative — these are the attributes we look for in people. They're attributes we employ every day in our work together: we’re building a platform and products we believe in — knowing there is real value to be gained from helping people, wherever they are, simplify whatever it is that they do and bring more of themselves to their work.

We’re building a strong, diverse team of curious, creative people who want to find a purpose in their work and support each other in the process. We work hard and we play to win… within normal business hours. And then we go home.

That balance is important: It enables us to truly do the best work of our lives. As a result, we create a place where all kinds of work happens — and happens well — all while working alongside people we respect and admire.
