There are so many brilliant, creative people who are trying to improve the world; by working on the software that they use to stay organized, I can help all of them achieve their dreams.
Asana since 2011
I am excited to be at Asana because of the amazing team, interesting technologies, and the scope and value of the problem we are trying to solve.
Asana since 2011
People always say this, but it really is all about your team. Everyday I get to work with passionate, creative, whip-smart and above all, respectful, people. We’re not perfect, but we’re pretty darn close.
Asana since 2010
We strive to be unswervingly self-aware, which facilitates being intentional about how we act, what we do, and how to constantly improve.
We approach work with calmness and composure, even (or especially) when things get hard.
As technology workers, we have the opportunity to effect positive change at an unprecedented scale and rate. At Asana, we strive to make the most of that opportunity.
We have deep mutual respect, and trust our teammates to make decisions over their areas of responsibility.
To increase our long-term velocity, we make continual investments in improving the capabilities of individual asanas and optimizing systems to be more effective.
Rather than rely on hard-and-fast rules that dictate behavior, we give ourselves the flexibility to apply judgement at the time a decision is being made. This allows us to incorporate more context about what is happening, enabled by the trust we share in the decision-making abilities of our teammates.
Asanas take pride in their work and invest time to produce a quality outcome. However, we also take pride in continual progress and moving fast, so we make sure not to take craftsmanship too far before shipping.
We focus on our mission and working together to achieve it, rather than our individual advancement or the aggrandisement of the company.
Both reason and intuition are important ways of gaining understanding and making decisions. To achieve the best outcomes, incorporate both.
Though it is sometimes tempting to pick an extreme point of view or compromise between two poles, the best outcomes often require incorporating elements of each extreme or, better yet, transcending them altogether through synthesis.
We bias toward making information about decisions available, both internally and externally, unless there’s a compelling reason not to. This practice helps promote trust within the team and facilitates constructive dialogue, because we can all see the details instead of just the net outcome.
Asana highly values diversity of thought, experience, and identity in our team members. We take seriously the endeavor of building a hiring and working experience in which all people feel they are equally respected and valued, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, citizenship, or any other aspect of identity that makes anyone unique and beautiful.
We are committed to empowering all of our employees to help humanity thrive. With that in mind, every Asana is supported by a host of benefits that allows them to do great things every day.
We'll give you a budget to build the desk and computer setup you've always wanted. Motorized sit/stand desks, ergonomic chairs, and multiple monitors are popular.
Luna is the in-house web framework that makes Asana tick. It lets us build richer, more powerful functionality and do it faster than ever before.
We use Asana for everything from planning to launches to CRM. When we improve our product, we improve ourselves.
We’re located in San Francisco’s sunny Mission District. Our office has one-of-a-kind city views and plenty of room to roam and grow.

We help employees develop into their best selves. Select a coach to help you grow professionally.
We believe in embracing the inhale and exhale of the work day. Yoga classes take place in the office multiple times per week.
