Sr. Program Manager, Core Product

Slack is seeking a Sr. Program Manager to drive technical projects for Slack’s Core Product organization.


In this role, you will partner with Product, Engineering, and Design teams to drive project execution. You understand the benefits of moving quickly and can champion program management processes and methods across the team. You will work directly with Product Managers and Engineering Managers to drive Core Product projects from planning through to delivery and will ensure the work is well understood, is tracked appropriately, and is executed successfully across multiple departments.

As Slack grows, it is critical that we develop repeatable, scalable methods that help the team deliver projects on time and to scope; you’ll help define what that means for the Core Product team. You have experience collecting product and business requirements for complex and multi-functional projects, and are curious to deepen your knowledge and learn standard methodologies to drive team-wide improvements. You thrive when running multiple, highly-detailed projects in a dynamic environment, and know how to make in-flight corrections when things don’t go according to plan.

 In short, there is someone on Core Product that cares the most about successful project execution - and that person is you!

What you will be doing (Responsibilities)

  • Identify and drive technical and process improvements across multiple teams and functions, leading the execution of programs and projects
  • Provide hands-on program management during analysis, design, development, testing, implementation, launch, and post-launch phases
  • Plan and execute high value cross-team and group-wide meetings
  • Build and maintain timelines, role & responsibility matrices, project plans and trackers, and communication artifacts to ensure everyone is operating from the most recent and accurate information. Rinse and repeat.
  • Identify, monitor and lead organizational and project changes across the team

What you should have (Qualifications)

  • At least 6+ years leading planning, resource management, project lifecycles, and workflows in a dynamic product or engineering organization
