Sales Strategy Operations Analyst

We’re looking for a data-driven analyst to support Asana’s High Volume Sales team, owning everything from strategy to deep-dive analysis and implementation.  

Our business model has evolved, and what started as freemium, bottoms-up sales has evolved to a three-pronged revenue model, including freemium / self-serve, high volume and enterprise sales. Our unique challenge is to scale and leverage this revenue model effectively.

This is a highly visible role working with cross-functional partners and advising sales leaders globally for someone with experience in sales operations, consulting, or finance. Your data-driven insights and leadership on strategic and operational initiatives will help influence the trajectory of one of the fastest growing businesses in Asana.

What you'll achieve
