We’re looking for a sales leader with experience building highly profitable, scalable, and leveraged teams to ensure the optimal balance of company growth and customer experience. As the Sales Development Manager, you will implement best practices, drive business growth, and help build our SDR and lead generation programs.

The Asana Sales team relies on a freemium product model that provides leverage for our sales teams at every customer interaction.
