How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?
The entire company runs on Asana! We rely on our own software to ensure collaboration across teams and offices happens smoothly and responsibility is clear.
How has your career grown since starting at the company?
Asana runs on distributed responsibility, which means leaders work to empower others to be as autonomous as possible. The opportunities for me to mentor others and guide teams have let me grow from being Asana’s first new grad hire to an Engineering Manager in our NYC office. I love that my career growth has come from focusing on areas I love!
How do you empower your team to be more creative?
We believe that creativity is borne of autonomy and clear responsibility. We have a company commitment to taking and giving full responsibility. This means we like to be explicit about who owns what and what that entails. This empowers team members to be creative with their solutions because they own the outcomes.
