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.

Atlassian is looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to lead our team of SREs as they build the future of Trello's infrastructure. The SRE team owns the infrastructure that powers Trello and enables its more than 90 Million users to get things done.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide both strong technical leadership and people management as you guide your team to make solid technical decisions for Trello's architecture today and into the future
  • Lead a team of experienced SREs to design, build and maintain infrastructure and services that scale
  • Drive technical excellence, pushing innovation and quality
  • Grow your team members' careers and keep them engaged
  • Support your team by holding regular one on ones, giving context on priorities, collaborating with other teams, unblocking projects, and resolving conflicts
  • Help to prioritize and coordinate the team's work alongside your product management peers
  • Work with your engineering manager peers to continuously improve Trello's engineering team and processes
  • Guide your team in understanding the right metrics to track and improve.

  • You're familiar with system design, site reliability engineering and databases

  • You have outstanding interpersonal skills: written and verbal, in-person and remote
  • You are adept at prioritizing and balancing multiple projects in a constantly evolving environment

It's great, but not required to have:

  • Experience with software development methodologies including Agile, Scrum
