We’re looking for students who are driven by collaborative and creative environments to develop simple, innovative, and beautifully designed products that customers love to use.

As part of a product-driven and design-led company, you will be a big part of a small team of Product Designers owning core developments of the product, from inception to post-launch reflection. Asana is helping teams in 195 countries become significantly more productive with our leading work management platform. You will be designing beautiful experiences that make it as simple as possible for millions of users to adopt, use, and benefit from our product, helping us achieve our mission to enable all teams to work together effortlessly.

Asana’s Product Design team is a tight-knit, collaborative group of designers from many different backgrounds who love combining research, data insights, and peer feedback into a user-centered design process. We pride ourselves on having a high Designer to Engineer ratio that enables you to do your best work on a balanced team.

What you’ll achieve

  • Collaborate with our experienced designers to discover user problems and transform them into intuitive, human-centered interactions
  • Be actively involved in the end-to-end design process of major features and iterations of an award-winning product (read stories on the Asana Design blog)
  • Contribute to everything from the broadest strategic discussions to the specifics of a marketing campaign and launch.
  • Design and prototype multiple ideas quickly, sometimes with customers, to validate product directions
  • Partner with engineers as they build and ship ideas
  • Experience career growth and personal development with world-class mentorship and development programs.  According to a past intern, we’re “really just one big family” where everyone is “encouraged to live healthy, balanced lifestyles”.
