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.

Our security team is growing. The Product Security team is responsible for making sure Atlassian products and services are safe. We are looking for a great Product Security Operations Manager who thrives on managing a team of security practitioners in operating and supporting security tooling.

Your responsibilities will include managing and mentoring a team of security practitioners, operating the Product Security team’s tooling, responding to questions from software developers about security vulnerabilities, and executing security projects to increase operational efficiency. You must have an interest in working with colleagues to understand our security tooling and improve its efficiency and effectiveness.

More about our team
We are a small focused group who is committed to protecting the security of our customers and of Atlassian itself. We work both independently and in collaboration with development teams as we assess and mitigate security issues in our products.

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • 3+ years working in security
  • 3+ years managing a team
  • A solid understanding of web application security
  • Experience in cloud security architecture and infrastructure
  • An ability to reason about security decisions
  • Experience leading projects from start to finish
  • An ability to communicate ideas clearly and effectively to engineers who know way more than you about their code

  • It's great, but not required, if you have:
  • Prior security operations experience
  • Published contributions to the security community
  • Presentation experience at industry events
Our perks & benefits

To support you at work and play, our perks and benefits include ample time off, an annual education budget, paid volunteer days, and so much more.
