We are hiring a Senior Product Designer to help design the future of Slack. Designers serve a vital role here: from creating the experience of new features, to the craft and finish of every detail in the product. We appreciate designers who think deeply, speak clearly, love collaboration and feedback, and have a solid collection of animated gifs. Slack has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture — if this sounds like a good fit for you, send us a nice hello, and links to your work and experience.

What you'll be doing

  • Work cross-functionally with Product and Engineering partners to represent the design team, facilitate design discussions, and give feedback in planning and product channels.
  • Collaborate closely with Design and Product Leadership to define your features and contribute to the overall direction of your product area.
  • Partner with engineering to ensure that our implementation and user experience is of high-quality.
  • Use and evolve our design system in order to design flows, prototypes, sketches, and high-fidelity visuals for your features.
  • Create and iterate on features that drive an understanding of how to use Slack successfully.
  • Solicit feedback from your peers, including other product designers and teammates in your product team.
  • Work in close collaboration with Design Leadership to inform and improve design processes.
  • Interview new Product Designers and actively inform our inclusive design hiring process.

What you should have

  • 5+ years of experience in an individual contributor role, on a Product Design team for desktop or mobile.
  • An outstanding portfolio, showcasing a foundation in Typography, Interaction and Visual Design, and Ideation.
  • Solid understanding of how to create usable, accessible, and modular designs that can scale to millions of users.
  • Experience in working and collaborating with diverse teams in a dynamic, rapid growth environment.
  • Experience partnering with Product Managers to develop the strategy and rationale for features.
  • Experience with prototyping as a means to explore and convey design solutions.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills (especially if you love to use emoji 😎)
  • Bonus: Experience designing for iterative and experimental features

Health & wellness

Full health coverage for you and your family (Slack pays 100% of your premiums), and a $150 monthly fitness and wellness reimbursement.

Parental leave

A lot of us have families, of all shapes and sizes and types, and we welcome each new addition with generous parental and new child bonding leave.

Learning & development

Receive $500 annually (or equivalent) towards a personal development opportunity of your choice, and $2000 annually (or equivalent) for professional development.

Happier weekdays

A meeting-light culture (or we try, at least), weekly massage therapy, guest speakers, and opportunities to get to know your team better through things like weekly catered lunch and breakfast, Thursday Socials, and game nights. But we don’t stay in the office 24/7.
