Working at Atlassian

Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Assuming you have eligible working rights and a sufficient time zone overlap with your team, you can choose to work remotely or from an office (unless it’s necessary for your role to be performed in the office). Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

The Ecosystem Security team is responsible for guiding the security strategy and initiatives for third-party apps which customers can use with their Atlassian products. We are looking for a Security Engineer who is excited at the prospect of enabling thousands of developers to improve the security of their apps and ultimately improve the security of millions of users.
In this role, your responsibilities will include defining security policies and best practices for Marketplace apps, build security tools and automation, and work closely with the Atlassian Marketplace team and our internal security teams to make processes and tooling available for third-party developers. You will also perform security reviews, source code auditing, and threat modeling on third-party apps as well as Atlassian platform.

Since a lot of our work involves building security tools and performing security reviews, the ability to read, understand, and write code is very important. Our products and third party apps are built using a number of different languages but Java, Go, and Python are the most common. As part of the focus on learning at Atlassian, you'll be able to spend up to 20% of your time on independent research.

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • 5+ years working in security
  • Solid understanding of web application security
  • Experience leading projects from start to finish and mentoring other security practitioners
  • Experience coding in Java, Python, or Go, and at least one scripting language
  • An ability to reason about security decisions
  • An ability to communicate ideas clearly and effectively to engineers who know way more than you about their code

It's great, but not required, if you have:

  • Published contributions to the security community
  • Presentation experience at industry events
  • Experience working with compliance, privacy, IT, networking or related functions
