Senior Product Manager, Messaging

Slack helps teams work together - big teams, small teams, teams the world over. In service of this, the Messaging team is responsible for essential communication in Slack. Our purpose is to provide a high-quality, considerate and reliable way for every customer to communicate with their team. A message written is a message received, and as part of that virtuous cycle, the Messaging team must offer an expressive and natural way for everyone to read and write in Slack. That’s where you come in.

Slack is seeking a product manager to lead key initiatives in Messaging as part of the Core Product Team. In this role, you’ll set product vision and oversee development for features that define how people compose and read messages in Slack. You’ll expand the capabilities of what a message is and how it’s displayed so people can express themselves fully and fluently in the many contexts of work. Fundamentally, you’ll strive to give people more control and flexibility around how they communicate in the workplace.

Slack has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, collaborative. If this sounds like a good fit for you, why not say hello?
