About Me

Hey there 👋 , my name is David (Min Xiao) Li. I'm a software engineer based out of New York. I currently work at Asana, where I'm bringing goals into day to day life.

On a day-to-day basis, I am often found exploring the city. Some of my hobbies include writing, coding, and volleyball. I love food and drink 🥂 (feel free to reach out for lists of recommendations), and really exploring the unwandered paths. I'm always down to check go to a museum, or see a show. Or there's always an invite to come over for food and drink!

In New York, I've been finding the most interesting people and diverse stories. It's been really cool seeing the artistic and the cultural sides of life, while enjoying the benefits of the one of the world's largest and most exciting cities.

I've lived in quite a few cities in North America. I moved around Canada, having lived in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal last. Who knows where the next adventure will take us?

I currently work on Asana Goals. Our goal (heh) is to connect company mission with day-to-day work, providing clarity and a sense of purpose to the routine tasks and projects you complete.

I last worked on Amazon Connect, a world-class call center as a service available in the cloud. Specifically, my team worked on Contact Lens, a machine-learning driven analytics and search for your customer's phone calls and records. I designed systems built for web-scale, with billions of piecse of data points every day, serving as the backbone of the internet. I built finely-tuned UIs and APIs to delight our users and solve the problems that they didn't even know they had.

Before that, I worked at Quartermaster, a startup connecting local communities with your next door neighbors and small business. I led UI, building experiences for homeowners and pros that made their day-to-day life more convenient.



While always busy, I'm always interested in the next challenge - especially solving the problems that really move the needle, and making the world a better place.
