Hi there! Slack is looking for an experienced content designer to work closely with product teams and to shape the craft of product content as a whole. Our ideal teammate excels at solving user experience problems through both information architecture and with language. Has experience building content systems to help others do the same; likes to make the complicated simple; provide clarity out of the messiness; makes any microcopy sound clear and human; and is passionate about mentoring other content folks.

We’re a growing team, and we delight in giving and receiving feedback to help each other be the best UX writers and thought partners we can be. We care about wit and deftness with tone, but we care most of all about clarity and helping users get things done. We have strong feelings (oh, do we) about sentence case and exclamation marks — and we’d love to hear yours.

Experience in product writing, content strategy, and/or copywriting, with a demonstrated record of writing successful UX/UI copy with measurable impact.

* Through trial and error we've learned that people don't apply unless we provide a guideline. But what’s more important to us than a number is the experiences you’ve had and the skills you’ve developed — regardless of the length of time it took to get where you are. Do you have 20+ years of experience? Awesome! Please apply. Have only 3 years, but feel you meet the requirements above? Send us your resume. We look forward to hearing from you.

Learn about Slack and their company culture.
Slack has transformed business communication. It’s the leading channel-based messaging platform, used by millions to align their teams, unify their systems, and drive their businesses forward. Only Slack offers a secure, enterprise-grade environment that can scale with the largest companies in the world. It is a new layer of the business technology stack where people can work together more effectively, connect all their other software tools and services, and find the information they need to do their best work. Slack is where work happens.
Ensuring a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other is core to Slack’s values. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and a pleasant and supportive place to work.
Come do the best work of your life here at Slack.
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.
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.

Flexible working hours
We believe in your freedom to work when and how you work best, to help us all thrive.
Paid parental leave
18 weeks maternity leave and 14 weeks paternity leave.
