UR - Engineering Interns

| Greater NYC Area

Inside and out of the classroom, learning never stops. As University students at Asana, whether interns or new graduates, we grow quickly by taking on responsibility and making an impact on core projects. We’re students from across the world, from many different backgrounds, who have all come to Asana to continue our learning journeys.

We are looking for a Software Engineering Intern to join our 2019 intern class. As an intern, you will take on a variety of projects, like building features, testing infrastructure, implementing subtle interaction behaviors, or designing data models. You’ll help us maintain a codebase and a culture that are a joy to work in, contributing to everything from the broadest strategic discussions to the specifics of a marketing campaign and launch. You will also learn how a successful organization runs itself and be supported as a human being, not just an engineer. According to a past intern, we’re “really just one big family” where everyone is “encouraged to live healthy, balanced lifestyles”.

Requirements

  • A constant desire to learn and improve
  • A strong background in computer science
  • Kindness and maturity
  • Passion for creating a superlative user experience, down to those little details that matter
  • Sound judgment for balancing between scrappiness and long-term code maintainability

Does the above sound like it might be you? Then we’d love to hear from you. Our goal is to provide a hiring and working experience in which all people feel they are equally respected and valued. So whatever it is that makes you unique—your gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, citizenship, educational background, socioeconomic status—we value it, and we’d love to see what you might add to our team.

We’re glad to hear you’re interested this job. If you’d like to learn more about our internship program, we recommend these links.

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!

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.
