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.

We are looking for a Risk & Compliance Manager who loves connecting with people and who is full of ideas to make valuable contributions to a high growth, innovative software company! As a Risk & Compliance Manager, you will work with the Risk & Compliance team, business and technology managers, and subject matter experts to coordinate and drive efforts related to product compliance, corporate compliance, risk management, and business resilience. Do you want to be a true business partner and not a "check the box" risk manager? If so, this may be the perfect role.

More About You:

You are comfortable working with technical leads and SMEs to analyze processes, business models and controls to discover and translate risks, and provide mitigating recommendations to the leadership team. You should be open to new challenges, strong at multi-tasking, be creative, self-directed, and a great teammate. You will drive continuous process improvement, and collaborate effectively with cross-functional business and technology teams, both internally and externally, to solve problems and implement new solutions. Having the ability to collaborate with and influence various global teams with some level of ambiguity and uncertainty is a must.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Connect with internal teams to understand their business processes, how they manage risks, and respond / advise on their compliance needs and concerns.
  • Facilitate reporting on risks, findings and controls performance
  • Develop controls and mitigation plans, and help drive their implementation
  • Drive compliance related initiatives including the performance of gap assessments for new compliance frameworks
  • Advise senior management on techniques for optimizing the risk profile of their function and their controls portfolio
  • Formalize and lead improvements for Risk & Compliance operations - processes, metrics, reporting, analytics
  • Provide regular status updates ensuring stakeholders are aware of progress and road-blocks
  • Drive effective teamwork, communication, collaboration, and commitment across the Risk & Compliance team
  • Seek opportunities to improve processes and collaboration, in order to increase team output and team health

On the first day, we’ll expect you to have:

  • 5-7 years of experience within Technology Risk Management/Risk Advisory in addition to Compliance, Information Security or Internal Auditing
  • Understanding of the software development business for cloud service providers
  • Experience with control and risk frameworks, performing compliance and risk assessments, designing controls and overseeing mitigation projects
  • Good verbal and written communication skills, especially communicating across all levels and cross functional teams
  • Ability to apply abbreviations like SOC2, ISO 27000, FedRAMP, NIST, HIPAA, and SOX in a highly dynamic environment
