About this event

About AsanaUP

AsanaUP is a 6-month apprenticeship program that provides a pathway to entry-level Product Design roles at Asana for individuals with non-traditional Product Design backgrounds. 

Our program equips individuals with industry experience in Product Design with an emphasis on mentorship and feedback.  

We’ve designed this workshop to give a boost to students who identify with historically underrepresented groups in tech as they launch their Product Design career. We'll prepare participants a peak into the day in the life of a Product Designer at Asana & create an opportunity for participants to ask questions directly to our Product Design team members. 

Our Design team & leaders will cover:

  • An overview of the Product Design team at Asana
  • Expectations for a Product Design apprentice
  • A detailed overview of the AsanaUP apprenticeship program
  • Q&A - we'll break off into breakout rooms for an intimate Q&A session with our Design team! 

After this event you will walk away with:

  • An understanding of the Product Design team & key roles and responsibilities of a Product Designer at Asana
  • Insight on the interview process
  • A better understanding of the perks and benefits of the AsanaUP Apprenticeship program
  • Access to our interview guides and preparation resources 

You Should Attend if You:

  • Identify with a historically underrepresented group in technology
  • Have attended a design bootcamp 
  • Are excited to learn, whether from your peers and mentors, or from independent research
  • Appreciate productivity and care deeply about helping teams collaborate more effectively and efficiently, including your own
  • Desire to be a part of an inclusive culture where everyone brings their whole selves to work
  • Are located near San Francisco, CA or New York City, NY


Please only register if you meet the qualifications above & know you will be able to attend as we will have a limited amount of space.

To ensure close collaboration, we will be asking all workshop participants to engage with cameras on.
