Product Designer

Asana is a shared task list for teams that changes the way people work together. Our product is the single source of truth for the planning, organizing and communicating among those you work with – from entire companies to personal projects. We’re making Asana fast enough to feel like jotting notes in a text editor, and versatile enough to be used for simple lists to complex projects. Our vision is for every group of people working together to organize themselves using Asana, in much the same way that email has become a universal communication tool.

On the design team, we take pride in the craft of building products: coming up with ideas, testing them on our users and our teammates across the company, creating polished design artifacts, and taking a leading role alongside our engineers in making sure our designs are well-implemented and bulletproof. You will have the unique opportunity to help build a brand new team in New York City while also working with Asana’s extraordinarily talented designers in San Francisco. You’ll help foster a decentralized decision making culture where everyone is encouraged to speak up on critical decisions and get involved in the entire product process, from conception (be it at a or during ) to post-launch reflection.

Requirements

  • A designer who is strong in all the skills needed to see a project through from concept to implementation. You will work through:
  • understanding our users and everything they love and hate about managing work
  • interaction design for a complex product
  • visual design that will make users smile and keep coming back
  • implementation details so that nothing gets left out
  • A clear communicator with the ability to talk about your designs in terms of users and to advocate your direction with the product and engineering teams
  • Experience with an iterative design process: incorporating feedback, launching quickly, and testing hypotheses
  • A strong portfolio including nuanced workflows and beautiful visual design applied to web-based or mobile apps
  • The ability to hand-code HTML/CSS with ease

Bonus Points

  • Enough JavaScript ability to simulate the experience of your design in detail
  • Experience conducting usability studies
  • Software engineering experience: commit design-related fixes directly into the codebase!
  • Interest in tangential fields: typography, fine arts, ethnography, and psychology
