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?
