Talent Acquisition is dedicated to ensuring that teams at Asana have the people they need to achieve their goals. As a product-driven organization, we hire the people who build Asana, the people who support our users, and the people who tell our story in the market.

We work as a team to get to know the whole person, to communicate our values, and to ensure that candidates are well-informed and delighted throughout the process. Recruiting is a company-wide effort and responsibility and we encourage all Asanas to adopt the motto, “Always Be Recruiting.”

We are looking for an experienced recruiter to work side-by-side with our founders and peers across the Business organization, the largest function within the company, to ensure that every hire is as exceptional as the last. We take pride in the craft of building this amazing team, which requires moving at a tremendous rate, and that’s where you come in!
