We’re looking for an engineer who is passionate about developer tooling and workflows. As a Development Lifecycle Engineer, you’ll be responsible for understanding opportunities for improvement in Asana’s engineering workflows and architecting and implementing changes that meaningfully impact both the experience of engineers and our ability to get our product into our users hands.


The Development Lifecycle team builds the systems and tooling that bring Asana engineers’ work from conception to production quickly, robustly, and delightfully. We are responsible for ensuring local development workflows are fast and seamless, strengthening our continuous integration pipeline to provide our engineers with world-class testing infrastructure, and standing up the systems that push our code to our production systems.

  • Modernize our development, testing, and deployment tooling, tighten development iteration loops, and polish the experience around frequent cycles in the development lifecycle
  • Solve upcoming scalability problems related to our development environment and build system
