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.

As a Program Manager for Atlassian’s Customer Success and Innovation (CSI) team, you will be responsible for driving strategic programs and projects across our Community and customer-facing teams. You will be working closely with other program managers and team leaders from across the globe to develop best practices and drive Customer Success & Innovation at scale and in interlock with our Atlassian Community. This role is about championing Atlassian Community team outcomes by creating and improving mechanisms for team efficiency throughout the year. This role will be accountable for defining and driving clean program execution against a plan you helped design to deliver measurable outcomes for the Partner solution adoption and Atlassian. You will work closely with all business levels to set delivery initiatives that support the Atlassian mission.

What you'll do

  • Cross-functional alignment and enablement: You’ll work closely with many teams across multiple business units at Atlassian, from R&D to Product Marketing to Customer Support. This role will help facilitate more efficient and effective collaboration and will help all our cross-functional partners and stakeholders maintain continuous alignment.
  • Program Design, Execution, and Refinement: Work with leadership and the program team to understand opportunities for improvement and program focus. Then develop a program plan that defines the problem statement, stakeholders, options for success, communication plan, and risk register. Execute against the plan while updating stakeholders and allowing adjustments based on ongoing feedback mechanisms including business prioritization.
  • Processes at Scale: Develop and improve processes to be easily maintained at a larger scale. Program managers help identify and implement ways to streamline contribution, automate where possible, and create consistency across multiple processes. Processes should take into account ways for this to scale across individual teams, CSI, and Atlassian as a whole.
  • Program Prioritization: Create a mechanism to help the teams you serve to define/ refine their focus for the quarter, review proposed programs to create clarity on the “why” and business impact for the program, then prioritize what programs will be worked on with a clear understanding of success and the definition of done.
  • Business Insights and Solutions: Reflect on the previous work and interactions across teams to help identify opportunities for business impact seen both within the Customer Success and Innovation team and throughout Atlassian. Then present possible solutions to help create a backlog of programs for the teams you support.
