Slack’s growth since the app’s launch in February 2014 is a modern illustration of hockey-stick growth. Many third party software sellers, including Google, have made their tools compatible with the service, and cloud services like Salesforce-owned Quip have taken steps to incorporate Slack-like functionality.

San Francisco-based Slack now has 650 employees.
