  • Adding new metrics and aggregations to our data warehouse to make new classes of questions answerable
  • Building models to predict the growth trajectory of different customer segments

About you

  • Proficiency with relational data modeling and SQL
  • Expertise in statistical methods and experimental design and analysis

Nice-to-haves

  • Familiarity with distributed data processing systems (e.g. Spark, Redshift)

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!

Rachel

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.
