Senior Backend Software Engineer, Trello


Location: New York, New York

Job Type: Full time


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 from an office (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.

Here at Trello, we celebrate the many ways we work. With a team of over one hundred, we connect from all over the US, like Atlanta coworking spaces, Minnesota forests, Hawaii beaches, and our beautiful headquarters in Manhattan, to name a few places. We expect our developers to contribute more than just code. You'll be involved in defining how things work, what they do, and why we do that instead of something else. We also expect you to share your knowledge and expertise with everyone else. In other words, we're all whole humans and expect the same from you. If that interests you, read on to learn more about the role.
