It seems that Slack is honouring its Canadian roots and plans to continue to hire employees for its Yaletown office in Vancouver. Currently there are 13 employees who are crammed into an 800 square ft. space, but Butterfield stated in an interview with BIV that they will be “hiring pretty aggressively in Vancouver” once renovations are complete.

Slack has about 50 employees in San Fransisco and Butterfield noted that “We’re about four times ahead of where I thought we would be already. And four times ahead of my best-case scenario. The growth rate, the uptake, the conversion and retention and all of those things have been far beyond expectations.”

The company is currently seeking Account Management, Customer Experience Agent, and Product Designers.
