THE COMPANY

Slack Technologies, Inc. is a computer software startup founded in 2009, with personnel located in Vancouver, San Francisco, Dublin, and Melbourne. The core team is largely drawn from the founders of the company that created Flickr. Slack is the fastest company to receive a billion dollar valuation.

THE CHALLENGE

Slack was scaling its Yaletown office at a rapid pace and needed a local IT partner to help them execute on multiple technology projects including but not limited to; a high-density wireless network, Cisco Meraki networking implementation, structured cabling, and a high-performance internet upgrade. Slack needed an IT partner that could meet the pace and demand of a successful startup.

THE SOLUTION

Slack engaged Nucleus as its go-to local IT partner by engaging in ongoing Managed Services and Professional Services. Nucleus successfully deployed a high-density wireless network, provided on-demand IT support, and assisted with various IT projects during the build-out of Slack’s Yaletown office. Nucleus continues to assist Slack on an ongoing basis.
