We're excited to hire an empathetic and strategic engineering Manager to lead Asana's Automation product engineering team. The mission of the Automation team is to improve the efficiency and quality of how work gets done by eliminating unnecessary manual steps. We want to streamline customers' processes so all team members — team leads, individual contributors, and visionaries — be confident that their processes are working successfully and saving time. In the 1.5 years that Automation has been live for customers, we have saved more than a cumulative 7.5 years of time back for customers, and we are just beginning!
The Automation is a full-stack product engineering team. We have an industry leading Automation builder UI and discovery gallery, backend business logic to handle things like date complexity, and vast implications on remote jobs stability. We are looking for an engineering Manager that is excited to learn and build in all layers of the technology stack.
This role will partner with cross-functional leaders (PM, Design, User Experience Research) to co-create a longer term vision for the product. The Automation team will also partner closely with the Workflow Experience team to develop a cohesive strategy for customers that want to create and iterate on their team's processes.

- Coach and mentor the team's engineers for individual impact, balance, growth, and leadership
- Thoughtfully craft the team's responsibilities, goals, and processes to achieve clarity and sustainable delivery across all functions
- Collaborate with engineering leaders across the organization to help make Asana's workplace more balanced, performant, inclusive, and in-line with our values.

- You have 5+ years of relevant experience, with 1+ years of experience managing a technical team
- You have experience working cross-functionally with product management, design, and infrastructure teams
- You are kind and intellectually mature
