Slack is looking for 550 full time employees, and thinks Denver might be the place to be.
And Denver doesn't want to let this opportunity from a tech giant pass. Colorado may be cutting Slack Technologies some "slack," in the form of more than $10 million in tax incentives as the cloud messaging app company considers opening its second headquarters in the Denver metro area.
The $10.5 million tax benefit package proposed by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade was developed under the code name "Project Ballpark." The incentives requested are performance-based Job Growth Incentive Tax Credits over an eight-year period. Slack estimates that the project will create up to 550 full-time jobs with an average salary of $107,975.
