Senior Product Manager, Missions

Slack is looking for an experienced Product Manager to guide the design, development, and strategy for Missions, our newest team aimed at helping non-developers build integrations and apps in Slack. Do you get excited about working on Platforms and want to help users build tools that make their teams’ working lives simpler, more pleasant, and more productive? Do you enjoy diving into details with your team and helping them succeed? Can you take vague user problems and turn them into real plans?

Great. Come work at Slack!

Responsibilities

  • Manage the daily workflow with a team of engineers and designers. Do whatever your team needs to help them keep moving.
  • Create and maintain your team’s roadmap and milestones. Work with your team to estimate, implement, and build features while ensuring that you’re working on the highest priority things you can be.
  • Collaborate with developer relations, customer success, partner engineering and other cross-functional teams to work with partners, participate in design sprints, and build the best apps for our mutual customers.
  • Build relationships with third party developers and partners building on Slack’s Platform and ensure that they can leverage Missions to thrive, innovate, and reach the teams for whom they’re building.
  • Represent your team in communication with product, engineering, and marketing leadership.

  • Get back to work. ;-)
