What’s so great about being a Slacker?


Depends who you ask. Yeah, sure, there’s the challenge of coming up with big, game-changing ideas. And there’s the satisfaction of bringing hard-working tactics to bear for the business brands that make our world go. But working at Slack and Company isn’t all business, all the time. We want everyone on our team to feel valued, welcome and free to be their best selves by knowing we have their back—day in and day out. That’s why we support our Slackers with benefits that go a bit beyond.


Competitive pay

Fair, market-based compensation for your efforts? Obviously. But wait—there’s more! Enjoy extras like a 401(k) program with company match, employee referral bonus for recruiting, a potential year-end annual bonus and anniversary gift cards.

Health benefits

Signing up with us means getting access to everything you need to stay healthy, from top-quality health, dental and vision plans to the disability and life insurance coverage we hope you'll never need.

Convenient commute

Getting to work is easy with all the nearby 'L' stations and bus stops. Plus our building's free shuttle busses zip you to and from downtown Metra terminals. Prefer to drive? Parking's right underneath our building. And our riverside location makes portaging your trendy new business kayak a breeze.

Cool tools

On your first day, we deck you out with a nicely loaded Mac to keep you connected, productive and app-y.

Snack and company

Thinking makes us hungry. And thirsty. So please, raid our fridge. Eat us out of house and home—especially during our weekly Bagel Fridays and random beer cart tours. And if you enjoy caffeine in all its invigorating forms, then we’ll make sure to set you up with CoffeeBot 3000™ for barista-style service. Fussy foam and cinnamon sticks not included.

Brass tax

Cut your taxes with pre-tax flexible spending accounts for child care, transportation, parking, health spending and more.

On-site gym

Build up your biceps or burn off those bagels with the well-equipped gym in our building. Rather run or walk outside? You're minutes away from the paths along the Chicago River or nearby Lake Michigan.

Sick and personal time

Our parents always told us to eat our fruits and vegetables, but everyone feels rotten sometimes. Enjoy unlimited sick and personal time to be used on an as-needed basis. We like to keep our staff healthy and safe.

Parties and libations

All work and no play makes for dull creative (and dull everything). We're always finding excuses for monthly happy hours, birthday celebrations, parties and team-building events. International Apple Fritter Day? Donut mind if we do.

Time off to recharge

Get outta here! We love a good vacation, so we give our people the lion’s share of paid vacation allotment, including a little extra time based on your tenure with us—and that’s not even counting the three “Free Fridays” that everyone gets. Planning for the holidays? That’s easier than ever: We’re closed from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day. Plus 10 additional paid holidays off during the remainder of the year.

Pants optional

Ha. Just kidding. But major points for making it this far. No, sweatpants probably won't work here. But we're not going to micromanage your daily wardrobe. Be comfortable. Be yourself. Be free. Just… not too free.

Food for thought

Keeping current is vital here, so we encourage ongoing learning in many ways—including free online WSJ, Crain’s Chicago and Bloomberg Businessweek subscriptions for better understanding our B2B world, along with paid attendance at industry events and conferences.

At the center of things

What sounds good? Lunch in the sun along the Chicago River? Maybe a show downtown after work? Take in a free movie in Millennium Park during summer or skip on down to Water Tower Place for some quick shopping. However you like to unwind, you have to admit—it beats the drive to Schaumburg.

Fun and games

No one takes fun more seriously than Slack and Company. Have a go at the weird spinning-top chairs our HR manager found or learn who your coworkers really are with a game of Cards Against Humanity. Not enough entertainment for you? No worries! Between our army of stuffed animals and our gang of adorable, murderous office fish, there’s a lot to enjoy in the moments between work.
