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.

Are you passionate about engaging with Government and Public Sector organizations and have experience with software retention? Do you enjoy working in smaller teams, while also being part of a company that's experiencing outstanding growth? Our mission is to maximize revenue retention with a keen eye toward strategic migration and expansion efforts, while providing a seamless customer experience that ensures continued health and loyalty. If this sounds exciting, then read on!

Enterprise Loyalty Advocates educate our customers on the benefits of Atlassian software. We affect customer retention through proactive, strategic account management activities to our largest Public Sector customers. We have a discovery mentality and actively look for ways to promote growth and expansion within your accounts. Our team drives renewal and expansion transactions across Atlassian’s suite of solutions through proactive engagement with high-value renewals, uncovering expansion and migration opportunities, and overcoming objections.

For our Government segment, we focus much of our effort on selling through our Channel, working collaboratively with Solution Partners to unblock deals. Each Loyalty Advocate also collaborates with our Account Executives team to support account planning and quoting activities, as well as with Channel Partners on account strategy and deals. You'll be first to understand why some customers stay, and some customers churn, and be responsible for sharing that insight with the company.

  • Familiarity with Atlassian's suite of products
  • Experience with both on-premise and cloud software solutions

What you'll do:
