Backend Software Engineer, Bitbucket

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.

Want to build the future of code collaboration at a company built by developers for developers?

Does working on a project that serves millions of end users float your boat?

Are you an experienced software developer who’s passionate about building, debugging, and optimizing SaaS software running at scale?

Come join us at Atlassian and work on, our source code hosting site! You will be working in a fast-paced SaaS environment where every line of code you write will be appreciated by a developer community of millions. You will be responsible for designing, implementing, monitoring, scaling and optimizing the code that powers Bitbucket. The company and our products are scaling rapidly and this is the team with the most to gain.

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

  • Leading the technical design and development of new software applications, features, and distributed services that support a high-scale web application
  • Designing, building, and maintaining RESTful APIs
  • Troubleshooting issues with existing architecture and code
  • Experience with performance tuning, profiling and debugging applications and services serving millions of requests per day.
  • Contributing to each step of the product development process, (ideation, implementation, and release)
  • Programming in Java, Golang, or Python (experience with Django is a plus)
  • Schema-based data storage (SQL)

It's great, but not required if you have:

  • Agile development methodologies like XP and Scrum
  • Operating systems (POSIX UNIX)
  • Networking (IP, routing, RPC)
  • Encryption and authentication protocols (OAuth, SSL)
  • A solid understanding of distributed version control internals including data structures and experience running DVCS servers.
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.
