You will be working with the Security and IT teams to build secure infrastructure and systems and keep Asana’s data safe. In this role, you will have the opportunity to drive the maturation of corporate security at Asana by leading key projects, providing subject matter expertise, and building out systems and processes. Working on the Corporate Security team you will be working closely with the IT Networking & Systems, Data Privacy, and Infrastructure Security teams to raise our overall security posture.

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 with IT to mature our infrastructure as code processes including building tooling to help them build more securely.

  • Own building and scaling the security review process for IT infrastructure.
  • Lead integrating key security logs from IT systems into our SIEM.
  • Provide subject matter expertise to our IT and Security teams to effectively prioritize top risks to the organization.

About you

  • 6+ years working in Security, on a Security-focused IT or Engineering team.
  • Strong communication skills, including empathy and the ability to speak to a diverse number of stakeholders effectively.
  • Competency and interest in writing clear documentation and proposals.
  • Risk-based approach to prioritization, rather than checkbox ticking.
  • Experience networking, servers, cloud service providers, and security best practices.
  • Solid automation and scripting skills (Bash, Python or similar).
  • Able to balance risk and getting things done.

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.
