If you have a job that causes you to work with even one other employee and you’re not using Slack, you’re doing it wrong.
Very, very, wrong.
After all, there’s a reason the cloud-based collaboration tool is one of the fastest companies in history to reach a billion dollar valuation (its current valuation as of April 2016 rests at $3.8 billion). It works. And, what’s more important, it helps you work too. Just ask any of its 3 million daily active users.
And at TechCrunch Disrupt yesterday, Slack announced that it will be opening a Toronto office later this year.
Currently, Slack has offices in Vancouver, San Francisco, Dublin, Melbourne, and New York, with some 600+ employees already working to make your internal communication that much easier.
Once they open their new Toronto office in mid-December at 171 John Street – just south of Grange Park off Queen – Slack will be looking to fill 145 new jobs over the next 24 months.
While in San Francisco for TechCrunch Disrupt, Ali Rayl, Director of Customer Experience at Slack, had this to say about the decision to move to the 6ix:
“Toronto is one of the most diverse and dynamic cities in North America and an ideal location for Slack’s global expansion. We looked at a number of potential locations, but Toronto stood out for several reasons; it is home to a vibrant and diverse community of educated people, it has competitive business costs, and it’s a great place to live and work. We are excited to be part of this innovative community, and appreciate the warm welcome we have received so far.”
Please note, you will not be receiving an email about this expansion. Ever.
