Slack, the fast growing enterprise messaging company, is planning on opening an office in Australia.

The company has advertised for a Customer Experience Agent to be based in Melbourne.

A Slack representative has confirmed that the customer service roles are just the beginning. The company plans to establish a base for Asia Pacific operations in Melbourne in early 2016.

Slack isn’t the first US tech company to create a landing pad in Australia. Both Google and Facebook have established beachheads in Sydney.
