Principal Product Manager, Navigation



San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Saturday, October 7, 2023

The Navigation team builds and improves the most commonly-used parts of the Asana product, with the goal of helping new teams set up, share, and collaborate on work as quickly and effectively as possible. Their mandate is to make the Work Graph visible across the entire product experience, and facilitate seamless orientation in Asana.

This team is working on surfaces that tie together the full product suite, collaborating closely with product owners across surface areas and driving company-wide impact. The program team leadership is deeply experienced and comfortable working across the full product. The work is high-impact, and high-visibility, with bold ARR targets, and a habit of exceeding them. We’re looking for someone with a strong track record of experimentation and growth, and the executive communication and stakeholder management to collaborate effectively to make navigation seamless.

This role is based in our San Francisco office with an office-centric hybrid schedule. Along with most Asanas, you’ll work from this office in person on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. 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.
