Senior Software Engineer, AI Agents

San FranciscoApply now

At Asana, we believe AI will fundamentally transform the way we work and live. We envision a future where AI moves beyond isolated chats to embedded, contextual collaboration - where humans and AI-powered “agents” work together seamlessly as teammates to accomplish amazing things. The AI Agents team is at the forefront of bringing this vision to life.

We are building an AI-based assistant capable of perceiving context, reasoning using knowledge and goals, making decisions, and taking actions to empower Asana users. The core technology powering the assistant is an agentic framework - a set of rational, autonomous systems that work together, coordinating and collaborating to achieve objectives. As a senior product engineer on the team, you will have the unique opportunity to not only architect this groundbreaking framework but also build the AI assistant itself. You'll work across the stack, from designing robust backend frameworks to crafting intuitive and delightful user interfaces, creating seamless user experiences that integrate AI into every aspect of our product.

This is a chance to be one of Asana's experts on harnessing the power of AI to revolutionize how teams collaborate and get work done. You'll dive into some of the most complex and exciting challenges at the intersection of AI and product engineering - from agent-based modeling to inter-agent communication protocols to AI-human interaction paradigms. You'll work on both backend data modeling and frontend UI development, ensuring that the human-in-the-loop interactions and complex editing flows are fluid and easy to use. Most importantly, your work will empower teams everywhere to achieve more than they ever thought possible by making AI a seamless part of how they work together in Asana.

If you're passionate about the potential of AI to make us more creative, effective, and fulfilled in our work, we'd love for you to join us in building this future.

What you'll achieve

  • Design and build an agentic framework to support multi-agent collaboration and decision-making, and develop the AI assistant powered by specialized agents
  • Create delightful user experiences focusing on human-in-the-loop interactions and complex, nuanced editing flows, where users will be editing work graph objects like tasks, projects, dashboards, and portfolios.
  • Tackle cutting-edge challenges around agent-based modeling, emergent behaviors, safety considerations, and more as you collaborate cross-functionally to integrate AI into Asana's core architectures
  • Participate in every step of the product development process, working closely with PMs, customers, and cross-functional teams to deliver large, impactful projects
  • Experience growth through opportunities to stretch, learn, and shape the trajectory of AI at Asana
