Work with us

We’re on a mission to make working life simpler, more pleasant
and more productive — for everyone.

Help improve people’s working lives

People the world over spend a lot of time and energy on work. It can be a source of identity and inspiration, but it can also be a source of anxiety and frustration — so it’s important people know their contribution matters. Helping improve people’s experience of working life is one of the things we, as Slack, have set out to do.

That starts with our own team.

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.

Our core values

These are some of the values we live by, as a company. We work by them, too: 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.

  • Empathy

  • Courtesy

  • Thriving

  • Craftsmanship

  • Playfulness

  • Solidarity

Working and thriving

We want people to thrive at Slack; we believe you do your best work when you feel your best. Here are a just a few benefits we’re proud to provide our team.

  • Just for You: Receive an annual allowance for professional development, plus a monthly stipend you can use towards anything. That means anything — a gym membership, your pet sitter, a new work look. Whatever matters most to you.

  • Health & Wellness: Free medical, dental and vision for you and your family — Slack pays 100% of your premiums.

  • Parental Leave: A lot of us have families, of all shapes and sizes and types, and we welcome each new addition with generous parental and new child bonding leave.

  • Happier Weekdays: A meeting-light culture (or we try, at least), guest speakers, and opportunities to get to know your team better through things like weekly catered lunch and breakfast, Thursday Socials, and game nights. But we don’t stay in the office 24/7.
