Product Manager, Platform Experience

Slack is looking for an experienced Product Manager to join our App Experience team.  

Slack is a collaboration hub.  Our platform makes Slack the place to get work done by connecting all the information, tools and services that teams need, ranging from strategic partners like Google, Salesforce and Workday to custom build internal applications. The Platform App Experience team is responsible for enabling high quality app experiences in Slack through the experiences we build and our direct engagement with partners.  

As a PM on the team, you’ll be responsible for the design, development, and strategy of key features and partnerships on our roadmap.

Do you get excited about working on Platforms and want to help users find apps that make their 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!
