Job Description

If you're dreaming of a design job in San Francisco, let's meet! The Asana Design Team will be visiting Chicago, IL (Oct 23-26) and Austin, TX (Nov 6-9) looking for the best designers and managers to come and work with us.

What we’re looking for:
We’re looking for driven and creative Product Designers to join the Asana Design team and help turn our mission into a reality by designing the end-to-end experience for Asana users. We're a tight-knit, collaborative group of designers who love combining research, data insights and peer feedback into a user-centered design process. This includes starting from first principles to define a problem, through generative ideas and directions, to detailed iterations of interaction design. We pride ourselves on having a high Designer to Engineer ratio that enables you to do your best work on a balanced team.

Asana is a fantastic opportunity to join a company that is still small but growing thoughtfully with just over 300 people. You'll be working on a meaningful mission alongside some of the best talent from Google, Facebook, Atlassian, Dropbox, Airbnb, and many others. You'll help foster a decentralized decision making culture where everyone is encouraged to speak up on critical decisions and get involved in the entire product process, from concept to post-launch reflection.

What you’ll be doing:
- Be actively involved in defining the strategy for your program
- Thinking in terms of design systems, not just screens
- Acting as a leader and self-starter within the Product Design team
- Work through product problems from definition and opportunity to shipping features to our customers
- Design and prototype multiple ideas quickly, sometimes with customers, to validate product directions
- Participate in design critique and product leadership feedback meetings
- Partner with engineers as they build and ship ideas

What skills you’ll need:
- Experience designing digital apps and systems. You have helped ship products before, ideally in the SaaS/B2B space
- Clearly communicates design work with solid rationale backed up with research and data
- A self starter who collaborates with designers, engineers, PM, marketing and other teams in the company
- An understanding of the product development process, from problem definition through to detailed UI and visual design
- Can iterate with low-fidelity sketches of workflows and translate those into beautiful high-fidelity designs using Sketch, Figma, etc
- Can understand and follow a design system, challenge and contribute to it when necessary
- The ability to create prototypes at various fidelity using tools like Framer, Flinto, Keynote, InVision, HTML/CSS/JS, etc

Does the above sound like it might be you? Then we’d love to hear from you. Our goal is to provide a hiring and working experience in which all people know they are equally respected and valued. 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.

NOTE: International candidates must hold a valid US working permit.

Asana’s mission is to help humanity thrive by enabling all teams to work together effortlessly. Think back to the last time you were deep in the zone—time flew by and the work flowed through you almost effortlessly. That’s how working together should be. Instead, information is scattered and responsibilities are unclear. We try to cut through the chaos with endless meetings and micromanagement, but we end up with less time and not much more clarity. At Asana, we’re building a place where everything from the most immediate details to the big picture are organized. With Asana, each person knows what they should be doing and why. This clarity, transparency, and focus allows teams to collaborate with less friction and produce great results. We believe coordination should be as effortless between people as it is between our own brains and bodies, that people should be appreciated, and love what they do.
