And we have deep empathy for both our coworkers and our users, to understand how we can work better together to help others work better together.

As a manager on the product engineering team, you'll focus on developing the excellent engineering team around you. You are passionate about helping others contribute more and develop as software engineers as well as human beings. You enjoy the challenge of balancing speed of execution with quality while building a product that users love.

  • Ensure a world-class experience for Asana users around the globe while simultaneously enabling a rapid pace of development and iterations

  • Work and learn alongside great peer managers with a strong sense of team

  • Coach engineers in their technical and professional development

  • Master the arts of delegation and scaling yourself aided by our strong team and things like Asana's Areas of responsibility ("AOR") system

  • Work closely with recruiting and other engineering managers to expand the team, including sourcing candidates, interviewing candidates, participating in conferences and events, and onboarding new employees

About you

  • 5+ years of relevant experience, with 2+ years experience managing a technical team

  • Experience working cross-functionally with product management, design, and infrastructure teams

  • Kind and intellectually mature

  • Willing and able to dive into the code yourself

  • Focused on maximizing impact for yourself, your team, and Asana as a whole

  • Equipped with the intelligence, empathy, integrity, and technical chops required to quickly earn the trust of a technically astute team

  • Comfortable with ambiguity; you enjoy figuring out what needs to be done-and then doing it

We value diversity. We provide a hiring and working experience in which all people know and feel that they're equally respected and valued regardless of age, race or ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ability, political views, or any other aspect which makes someone unique. We'd love to see what you'd add to our team.
