Product Manager, Data

Slack is seeking a product manager to lead the development of our data tools and systems. This role owns the strategy, planning, and execution of our internal product analytics framework. The ideal candidate will bring depth of functional (product management) and subject matter (analytics frameworks, growth engineering) experience as well as a proven track record in organizations of varying sizes.


  • Develop the strategy and roadmap for data/analytics tools and systems.
  • Define requirements across Product, Sales, Analytics, Engineering, Native Apps for a suite of data tools and projects. These projects include our internal event logging system, data processing engines, experimentation framework, and data visualization and dashboard tools.
  • Evangelize the value of data/analytics and help drive a data-informed culture. Numbers are only as good as the way in which they are presented, and the person in this role should have a point of view on how to make our data intelligible and important to the rest of the company.


  • Experience informing product decisions by analyzing event logs and by conducting multivariate, overlapping experiments.
  • A strong command of core statistical concepts, including hypothesis testing, the design of experiments, and bootstrapped confidence intervals.
  • Familiarity with backend data processing engines like Apache Hive and Apache Spark, interactive SQL query engines like Presto and Impala, and systems for analyzing events in near-real time like Druid and Logstash.
  • Experience partnering with engineering and design teams to define, build, and maintain products which are critical to growth, engagement, and retention.
  • Passion about Slack and the problem we are solving.
  • Great track record of working with engineering and design teams: people want to work with you again.
