Join Slack

Slack logo

We use Slack as our internal IM-tool.

Apart from helping you communicate with your team and create productive working and project management channels, there are also a number of fun community channels that you can be a part of.

At Cicada, we encourage you to be a part of the discussion and a part of our wider
community. Slack is a great way to foster that.
