Engineering Manager, Framework Engineering

San Francisco

The Framework Engineering team builds the building blocks, internal platform, abstractions and APIs that power all parts of the Asana application. From core UI components, client performance libraries to data loading APIs, these frameworks empower product engineers and designers to easily build highly-reactive and fast product features at scale.

We’re looking for an Engineering Manager to help make the Asana product teams move even faster in building a best-in-class product. You’ll coach, develop and support our amazing team of engineers to influence the direction and quality of software development patterns across the organization. You’ll partner cross-team, and in many cases cross-functionally, to define the direction of Asana frameworks’ roadmap and coordinate cross-team efforts to get there. You appreciate both product quality and development velocity, and how they both contribute to Asana’s success.


What you'll do 

  • Manage a team of 5 - 8 engineers working on frameworks that affect every aspect of the Asana product.
  • Support and coach engineers in their technical and professional development.
  • Partner with the Asana product teams to identify, define, and execute on technical or organizational opportunities to enable teams to develop faster at Asana, and help the company achieve our goals faster.
  • Recruit for and grow the Frameworks engineering team.
  • Contribute to organizational health initiatives outside of your team, either on engineering team level, or Asana-wide.

About you

  • 2+ years of engineering management experience, ideally with experience managing technical initiatives aimed towards developer productivity.
  • Enthusiasm partnering with stakeholders across the engineering organization to drive solutions.
  • Focus on maximizing impact, for yourself and your team.
  • Ability to help evaluate and frame complex technical decisions that have cross-cutting impact.
  • Oriented around the multi-year consequences of your decisions.
  • Kind and intellectually mature.

So whatever it is that makes you unique—your gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, citizenship, educational background, socioeconomic status—we value it, and we’d love to see what you might add to our team.
