Asana has grown to millions of users across 195 countries worldwide. Our rapid growth is due, in part, thanks to the word-of-mouth of our community of customer advocates. Asana’s community team brings customers and Asana together to deepen connection (between them and Asana, and to each other), engagement (education, empowerment, and enjoyment), and advocacy (word-of-mouth awareness-building and referrals) to enhance and reflect customer love and build our business.

As Community Program Manager, Japan, you’ll be responsible for growing the Asana Together community program regionally by creating and executing region-specific recruiting, activation, engagement and retention programs for members, engaging with Japanese customers in our community forum, and for hosting events to energize local customer communities. You’ll have the opportunity to work with our internal community, marketing, and sales teams, our regional customers, large-brand partners and their communities, and experiment with new channels, methods and incentives for expanding and activating the Asana community in Japan.

  • Monitor and report on success metrics, including program efficacy, ROI and business impact.
  • Gather feedback and insights from program members to inform marketing and product strategies and partnership opportunities.

About you:

  • Above all, you love people (and especially customers). You love what they say. You love to be inspired by their stories. You can’t wait to engage with them every day.
  • Understand motivations for people to become part of the Asana Community Program, and build our programs to best meet their needs, engage them, and help them perform within it.
