Software Engineer, Data Tools & Experimentation Platform



Software Engineering
San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, November 21, 2023

The Data Infrastructure organization owns the infrastructure, services, and pipelines that transport and process data from all of Asana’s product surfaces, providing data to stakeholders in Data Science, Business, and Product teams. Our platform is used for everything from making ship / no-ship decisions to powering intelligent in-product features.

The Data Tools & Experimentation Platform team splits our time across two areas: analytical data tools, and the Experimentation framework, used to run product A/B tests.

We’re a small but mighty team that covers a lot of surface area. From distributed data processing with Apache Spark to full stack web development on the Experimentation UI, to building and maintaining Kubernetes applications, you’ll have the opportunity to wear many hats and create outsized impact.

This role might be for you if you’re agile, scrappy, and interested in learning and mastering a variety of technologies.

This role is based in our San Francisco office with an office-centric hybrid schedule. Along with most Asanas, you’ll work from this office in person on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Most Asanas have the option to work from home on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you're interviewing for this role, your Talent Acquisition Partner will share more about the in-office requirements.

What you’ll achieve

  • Work on all parts of Asana’s in-house experimentation platform, from the statistical backend (Apache Spark / Scala) to the user interface (React / Typescript)
  • Improve our tools for data analytics, visualization, governance, and lineage (e.g. Databricks, Redash, Amundsen, Marquez, etc.)
  • Build and manage infrastructure using Kubernetes and Terraform
  • Ensure data availability by participating in an on-call rotation for our team’s services
  • Develop clean, beautiful code and leave it better than you found it

About you

  • 2 or more years of experience working within large, well-maintained codebases
  • You’re enthusiastic about working on a broad range of technical challenges, from distributed data processing to full-stack web development
  • You take pride in writing clean code and building performant infrastructure
  • Experience with Python or Scala

At Asana, we're committed to building teams that include a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, as this is critical to helping us achieve our mission. If you're interested in this role and don't meet every listed requirement, we still encourage you to apply.

What we’ll offer

Our comprehensive compensation package plays a big part in how we recognize you for the impact you have on our path to achieving our mission. We believe that compensation should be reflective of the value you create relative to the market value of your role. To ensure pay is fair and not impacted by biases, we're committed to looking at market value which is why we check ourselves and conduct a yearly pay equity audit.

For this role, the estimated base salary range is between $171,000 - $209,000. The actual base salary will vary based on various factors, including market and individual qualifications objectively assessed during the interview process. The listed range above is a guideline, and the base salary range for this role may be modified.

In addition to base salary, your compensation package may include additional components such as equity, sales incentive pay (for most sales roles), and benefits.
