The Business Technology team at Asana provides our Business and Operations teams with the tools, data, and insights to help maximize the impact our company can have on the world.
We’re looking for a Technical Program Manager (TPM) to join the Business Technology team in coordinating projects for multiple areas, including Finance and Sales. Our TPMs manage the full lifecycle of projects and programs — from project kick-off and planning to execution and closure — to deliver high-quality services for our internal stakeholders with predictability.
They bring order to chaos by thinking holistically and foster open collaboration by working with cross-functional project team members to design and improve processes and tools. They are comfortable working with both highly technical and non-technical disciplines to ensure that project inputs and requirements are transformed into impactful results. They identify, manage, and mitigate risks, and create repeatable project management processes, providing the leverage to scale our business.
