Posted on Monday, December 11, 2023

We are looking for a product-focused Tech Lead (TL) to lead a Collaborative Actions team. Collaborative Actions work on building product features and experiences that remove barriers for users to connect and collaborate seamlessly and securely. Our work takes us across the Asana codebase to help strengthen and improve some of the highest impacts and highest visibility parts of the app including invitations, sharing, and permissioning.

As TL of Collaborative Actions, you will be responsible for coming up with the technical vision for the team, partnering across functions like Product and design to prioritize, plan, and drive the execution of our team’s impactful roadmap. You’ll also be helping up-level engineers on the team and helping them make sound technical decisions while helping the team iterate quickly to make these features come to life. The work we do and the decisions we make often unblock other teams’ work, so you’ll often be working with other teams to help sequence and plan initiatives across teams. If you’re interested in driving impact by making collaboration within Asana faster, easier, and more secure, we’d love to hear from you!

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.

What you’ll achieve

  • Provide technical leadership to a full-stack engineering team of 4-5 engineers, fostering technical mastery and professional growth.
  • Set the technical strategy to deliver on the team’s roadmap by helping scope out the technical work for projects and identifying other technical improvements.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to ensure effective collaboration and technical alignment.
  • Work with other teams to provide technical guidance and feedback on cross-team initiatives.
  • Partner with product, design, and data science to help design solutions to address the needs of our largest customers and ensure alignment with business objectives.
  • Mentor and up-level engineers on the team through pairing, code reviews, and team tech talks to promote technical excellence.
  • Be the Engineering voice in the room where roadmap decisions are made.

About you

  • 5+ years of software development experience with expertise in full-stack engineering.
  • Technical mastery and proficiency in one or more programming languages, frameworks, and technologies (e.g., JavaScript, TypeScript, Scala, React).
  • Passion for mentoring engineers of all experience levels and fostering collaboration along with psychological safety amongst team members.
  • Proven experience working cross-functionally with stakeholders, including Product Management (PM), Design, and Data Science partners, to manage risks, make tradeoffs, and align on long-term plans.
  • Excited to be a part of and help us grow an inclusive culture where everyone brings aspects of themselves to the workplace to thrive and grow.

At Asana, we're committed to building teams that include a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, as this is critical to helping us achieve our mission. If you're interested in this role and don't meet every listed requirement, we still encourage you to apply.

What we’ll offer
