Software Engineer, Customer Acquisition
In this role, I work on a cross-functional team and use my deep understanding of web technologies to improve the Slack.com experience with a key focus on usability, performance, and accessibility.
Slack is where work flows. It’s where the people you need, the information you share, and the tools you use come together to get things done.
