Community Marketing Program Manager, Japan

    • Tokyo, Japan

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.

This role reports to Asana’s Head of Global Community who is based in San Francisco.

What you’ll achieve:

  • Source, research, and recruit Japan-based participants into the Asana Community Program, including (but not limited to) online recruiting, partner relationships, direct customer contact, and coordinating online and offline events.
  • Research, recommend and produce region-specific resources, marketing campaigns, content and events for ongoing recruitment, activation, engagement and retention of community audiences.
  • Manage daily regional community operations, including working with regional community members and moderating our Japanese community forum.

  • Manage coordination of Asana-hosted event conceptualization, program and speakers, venue/platform, sponsors, vendors, and promotion for online and offline events.
  • 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.
