At Slack, our home on the web really matters to us; our mission is to make our customers’ working lives simpler, more pleasant, and more productive. The Customer Acquisition team works primarily on slack.com and is responsible for driving top of funnel growth. We are an experimental team that uses data to inform the work that we do.

You should be well-versed in frontend technologies and able to give advice on code architecture and implementation.
