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 return to an office as they reopen (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.
Do you love defining and interpreting business metrics? Do you want to develop and analyze performance and support decisions that drive investments, growth and profitability? Are you looking to make a big impact, partner with world-class talent and take your career to the next level? If so, our Financial Planning & Analysis team encourages you to join us in this exciting journey.
As a Senior Financial Analyst, you will report to the Senior Finance Manager on the FP&A Cloud revenue team, and primarily support Cloud business leaders. You will play a key role in financial planning, become a valued partner to Cloud Product teams, and support informed business decision making and strategy execution through building robust financial models. You appreciate the mantra "work smarter, not harder" and will champion improvements to growth and operations for the Cloud business. You will also work closely with the broader finance, strategy, pricing, analytics and data infrastructure teams.
This is a highly visible role in the organization with close partnership with senior business leaders across the company, ideally suited if you are passionate about developing a deep understanding of our business, have a strong financial and analytical background, and are keen to drive growth and operational improvements as a strategic finance partner.
On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

Ability to draw upon insights and tell a compelling story using data to help influence key decisions
A curiosity to learn and take initiative to solve problems independently
Strong critical thinking, organizational, interpersonal, communication and collaboration skills
Experience working in a dynamic, rapidly changing environment
It's great, but not required of you have:
Exposure to working with planning tools (e.g., Anaplan) and finance systems (e.g., Netsuite)
SQL skills and understanding of database / data warehousing concepts
Knowledge of BI tools and technologies (e.g. Tableau)
Technology or Software / SaaS industry experience
