Our team advocates for the partner ecosystem’s needs internally, and collaborate closely with product and engineering teams to set roadmaps and launch new features!

Partner engineering is a good fit for people with technical backgrounds who enjoy communicating and empathizing with collaborators of a variety of backgrounds, both technical and non-technical. To thrive in this role, one must be passionate about working closely with partners and our product team to achieve goals, while advocating for Slack’s platform through teaching and public speaking!

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?

  • Craft presentations and work with partners to prepare for GTM launches
  • Collaborate with multi-functional teams within Slack to run beta programs for new features, improve the platform, and grow the app ecosystem
  • Lead team level and multi-functional initiatives and projects


What you should have

    • 3+ years of partner/sales engineering, software engineering, product management, developer advocacy, or related experience.
    • Proficiency in at least one programming language.
    • Strong understanding of API design principles
