  • Design, build and iterate on frameworks that affect every aspect of the Asana product
  • Partner with product engineering teams to identify opportunities to enable teams to develop faster at Asana, and help the company achieve our goals faster.
  • Analyze complex systems to uncover issues, root causes and points of improvement
  • Champion code quality and best practices, through your role model behavior and through the frameworks you built

About you

  • 4+ years of software engineering experience, with experience working on technical initiatives aimed towards developer productivity
  • 2+ years experience on a platform or frameworks team
  • Experience driving complex technical projects, sometimes spanning multiple teams, and you know when to ask for help and find answers from other people
  • Experience mentoring others on the team
  • Learn quickly and are comfortable regularly transitioning between different areas of a large codebase
  • Curious to learn about new technologies and systems, and teach others
  • Able to make and articulate technical tradeoffs in decisions that have cross-cutting impact.
  • Focus on establishing and spreading high quality software engineering patterns
  • Familiar with GraphQL ecosystem and TypeScript or Scala (preferred)
  • Are looking for an environment where you and your teammates empower one another to become the best versions of yourselves

What we'll offer

We believe that compensation should be reflective of the value you create relative to the market value of your role. To ensure pay is fair and not impacted by biases, we're committed to looking at market value which is why we check ourselves and conduct a yearly pay equity audit.
