Learn about the product we’re building and how we collaborate internally at Asana.

Think back to the last time you were deep in the zone—time flew by and the work flowed through you almost effortlessly. That’s how working together should be. But instead, information is scattered and responsibilities are unclear. Work is chaotic, and it’s time for that to change. At Asana, we’re building a place where everything from the most immediate details to the big picture are organized. With Asana, each person knows what they should be doing and why. This clarity, transparency, and focus allows teams to collaborate with less friction and produce great results. We believe coordination should be as effortless between people as it is between our own brains and bodies, that people should be appreciated, and love what they do. By empowering all teams to work together, we help humanity thrive. From Uber, Pinterest, TED, The New Yorker, IDEO, Zappos, Malala Fund, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Tribeca Film Festival, and Autodesk, teams and organizations are running their operations and tracking projects more efficiently in Asana.
