Partner Engineer

We’re looking for a Partner Engineer to work with Slack’s strategic platform partners. You will work directly with their teams as they build apps on our platform, from defining integration use cases to how it interacts with our APIs. You will advocate for our developer ecosystem’s needs internally, and collaborate closely with platform product and engineering teams to set roadmaps and define new features.

Partner engineering requires people with technical backgrounds who can also communicate and empathize with developers that are building on the Slack Platform. This role would appeal to someone who loves coding and is passionate about connecting with developers. You enjoy helping people solve problems, writing code samples, and speaking at events.


  • Work with our largest partners on crafting the best possible experiences for joint users
  • Be an expert on Slack’s platform capabilities and app design patterns
  • Collaborate with Slack product, engineering, and other colleagues to build new features, improve the platform, and grow the app ecosystem
  • Support partners at scale by creating code samples, documentation, and tools


  • 3+ years of partner/sales engineering, software engineering, or developer advocacy experience
  • Solid understanding of how HTTP works and what a good API looks like
  • Excellent communication skills; you can explain a complex technical issue in such a way that most people could understand
  • Experience operating within cross-functional teams (product, engineering, design, and marketing)
  • Passionate about Slack, our platform, and the problem we are solving
