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.

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.

More About the Role

  • You will add and support new features in Trello search and Trello workflow automation that will ship to over 50 million users.
  • You will work with Product Managers, Designers, Testers, and other Developers to refine feature design and functionality.

  • You will build fast, testable, and high-quality server code.
  • You will set the standard for thorough, meaningful code reviews.
  • You will share knowledge and best practices to improve engineering excellence.
  • You will iterate quickly based on user feedback.
  • We use the following technologies at Trello: JavaScript, TypeScript, Node.js, Mongo, Redis, GraphQL, React, Docker, and AWS. Experience in these particular technologies isn't a requirement for applying, but you'll be using them daily.
  • Our Engineers are very influential in decision-making. We hire creative people and give them the autonomy to do great work. We're firmly against artificial separations of responsibility and throwing work "over the wall."
  • We built Trello to be a remarkably great place to work.
  • Our office is in New York City (but you don't have to be).
