Johnny's Story
Finding Slack
Johnny completed his undergraduate degree in multimedia programming and obtained a graduate degree in computer science. His career led him through a series of freelance contracts and full-time positions that never left him feeling completely fulfilled, so one day he sought out the founder of Slack—whose office was right down the street from his current office—interviewed, and was hired one week later.

Senior Staff Engineer
Johnny arrives in the office between 9:00 and 9:30 AM, and he starts off his day checking up on projects he’s been working on previously and fielding any questions, concerns, wants, and needs from different departments. Around lunchtime, Johnny likes to sneak out to the gym—before coming back and coding the remainder of the afternoon to keep content fresh for the following day.
