Role Description

The goal of the Platform team is to make Asana engagement explode. To do this, we’ve enabled developers (and enterprise customers) to extend our product via external software and services. The API team, a subset of the Platform team, designs and builds most of the public API for new and existing features. We work closely with the PM and Developer Relations teams, and are supported by our own infrastructure team for shared infrastructure needs. At Asana, we care deeply about creating a superlative user experience and this extends to developers too. That’s why we want an API that is comprehensive enough to encompass a range of developer needs.

You will be responsible for taking the Asana developer experience to the next level. We have had an external API for nearly 5 years, and we’re cranking up our developer investment. We’re looking for someone to add strong interface design and developer empathy to the team. You will be combining tried and true software engineering and API best practices with many of the innovative ideas that our in-house framework, LunaDb, already offers to web applications.
