About this event

Nolan is the senior director of the Internal Tools team at Slack. He and his team focus on developer productivity tools, including the build, test and release pipelines for our web, mobile and desktop applications.

The team also manages Slack’s source control systems and compliance automation and supports our web app production infrastructure. Nolan has been at Slack for seven and a half years and has held the roles of chief of staff to the CTO, head of organizational development and head of product operations.

When not at work, his sons (ages 2 and 5) keep him busy, and he enjoys zooming around San Francisco on e-bikes with his family and watching as much Giants baseball as he can.

Interested in learning about the day-to-day of the Internal Tools team at Slack? Perhaps you’d like to hear about its plans or find out more about compliance automation.

Nolan is here to answer your questions!
