We harness technologies that can revolutionize companies, careers, and, hopefully, our world.

Slack is a messaging app for business which lets you organize conversations into channels so everyone moves faster and stays in sync. It’s a platform that connects everyone in your business—employees, customers, and partners— securely with each other and integrates easily with apps you use every day to get work done. And everything happens, using any device, within a digital workspace that’s super easy to use.

What you will be doing:
Your days at Salesforce or Slack will be spent collaborating with and contributing to your team. You will be assigned real projects and make an impact, all while receiving mentorship from amazing engineers on your teams.

You will also have recruiter check-ins, general guidance and support to make the most of your internship experience. Lastly, you have access to participate in any of our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).
