Asana is looking for a Product Design Manager to lead design for the Orchestrate team. You’ll lead designers focused on empowering our customers to effortlessly build, customize, scale, and iterate on their end-to-end workflows.

This role is perfect for a design leader who loves tackling complex systems problems. We’re looking for someone who is a strong advocate for customers and has a passion for product and design excellence. Above all, you’re an excellent people manager who can coach the designers on your team to do their best work. You’ll be a part of the Asana design leadership team, and you’ll have the opportunity to pave the way for innovation for the larger Asana design team — not only in what we make but also in how we make it.

Most Asanas have the option to work from home on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you're interviewing for this role, your Talent Acquisition Partner will share more about the in-office requirements.

We design the future of teamwork. Asana has a bold, ambitious mission: help humanity thrive by enabling the world’s teams to work together effortlessly. Our design team is at the heart of that mission.

Asana Design is an inclusive and collaborative community. We’re a diverse group of designers from different backgrounds (product, brand and content design, design operations, producers, motion design, film, copywriting). We are a team that loves combining research, data insights, and peer feedback into a human-centered design process to produce designs that are core to the power of our applications. We partner with people across Asana to create our product, shape our brand, and drive greater impact through design. We use design to solve challenges and create experiences that customers love. We also take the time to get weird and have fun along the way.

We believe every designer should have the opportunity to grow and learn by utilizing their strengths and nurturing their interests.
