We’re hiring a Product Designer on the Foundations team to help craft the future of Slack. You’ll help shape and maintain our design system and tools, as well as design features core to the Slack experience.

Designers here work across every stage of product development, from creating the experience of new features, to prototyping and finding creative solutions, to the craft and finish of every detail in the product. On our team, we appreciate designers who think deeply, speak clearly, work collaboratively, and have a solid collection of animated GIFs.

At Slack, we have a positive, diverse, and encouraging culture we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Work closely with lead designers on the team to define features and the overall direction of your product area.

  • Partner with the wider design team to find creative ways to increase design productivity and efficiency.

  • Work with design, product management, and engineering to generate ideas and turn them into a flawless product experience.

  • Create, organize, and update our design library and templates in Figma.

  • Partner with engineering to ensure a high-quality implementation and user experience.

  • Use the Slack design system in order to craft flows, prototypes, sketches, and high-fidelity visuals for your features.

  • Improve your teams work by asking for and offering feedback from other product designers and cross-functional teammates.

What you should have:

  • 2+ 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.

  • Deep knowledge of Figma, particularly components, libraries, auto layout, and plugins.

  • Solid understanding of how to craft usable, accessible, and modular designs that can scale to millions of users.

  • Experience working and collaborating with complementary diverse teams in a multi-faceted, rapid-growth environment.

  • Experience working with product managers to execute on the strategy for product features.

  • Experience with prototyping as a means to explore and convey design solutions.

  • Excellent communication skills (bonus points if you love to use emoji)
