Working at Atlassian

Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity.

Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

We are searching for a Senior Full-Stack software engineer to join the Compass team in the US.

We’re building a new product, Compass, that will be the mission control for engineering teams.

As part of the Compass Culture team, you will be responsible for leading and working on greenfield development efforts to enable customers to visualize and improve their engineering processes.

You will be working on complex Java-based code on the backend with UI components built with React and other Javascript technologies. Knowledge of Kotlin and Typescript will be very helpful. Experience with building and running services, also with experience with any of public cloud offerings (e.g., AWS, GAE, Azure) will be required.

You will be working closely with a team that’s distributed throughout the US (PDT, MDT, CDT) and collaborates frequently with partner teams based in Sydney.
