Slack is looking for an engineering manager to join our Search, Learning & Intelligence (SLI) team headquartered in NYC. Our team's mission is to make the product smarter and companies dramatically more productive the more they use Slack. The work will span many disciplines: search/information retrieval, recommendation systems, machine learning & natural language processing.
You will lead a team responsible for building a fast, personalized search experience across all of the knowledge within Slack: messages, people, channels, files, links, and more. Slack should grow to feel like the augmented memory for the entire company. You’ll be one of the founding members of the team and office, which just started up this year and is just under 10 people. The position will report directly to the head of the SLI group; you’ll lead ~3-5 people to start, and a big part of your role will be growing the team with more incredible folks.
