At Asana, program leads (PLs) are responsible for the delivery and technical quality of our programs. They take on complex projects, lead the work of several ICs, partner with cross-functional and cross-organizational stakeholders, mentor team members in technical design and project leadership, and are also responsible for running team processes.
The Content Experience team is on a mission to improve Asana’s ability to capture foundational raw thoughts and long form content (the starting points for new initiatives or ideas) to help our users build and harness a richer work graph and retain flow by avoiding context switching across different tools. We are developing a platform for authoring rich content easily across all of Asana, allowing effortless capture of unstructured thoughts and their easy conversion to structured execution tracking, while collaborating in real time with other users. This platform will also bring more composition aids like inline images, videos and third party embeds to Asana. We are looking for an experienced technical leader for the Content Experience team to bring this platform to life.
Creating content is a primary use case of any and every Asana user. Any product feature in Asana that allows a user to create and edit content will be based on the new content editing platform. This platform will enable Asana to serve more types of users by bringing innovative product offerings to market quickly.
