What Asana is looking for in applicants

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

We’re looking for a Software Engineer to help make our engineering team move even faster. You’ll use your engineering experience to identify points of friction and design new approaches which are easier and safer to use. You’ll create new APIs balancing their ease of use with making them powerful enough to support Asana’s featureful web application. You will work with our world-class team of engineers to enable new functionality, and influence the direction of software development patterns across the organization.

What you'll achieve 

  • 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

  • 2+ years of software engineering experience, with experience working on technical initiatives aimed towards developer productivity
  • Learn quickly and are comfortable regularly transitioning between different areas of a large codebase
  • 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 React / GraphQL ecosystem and TypeScript (preferred)
  • Are looking for an environment where you and your teammates empower one another to become the best versions of yourselves

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.
