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.

Atlassian is looking for an experienced Principal Engineer to join our Cloud Administration team. This role involves the design, implementation, and operations of the services to strengthen the enterprise readiness of our cloud. Be a part of a high-energy and dynamic team that delivers incredible, creative improvements to our products. You'll often collaborate with other developers to write the best code for the project and deliver amazing results that our users love.

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

  • Broad experience architecting, designing, and building large-scale distributed systems.
  • Broad knowledge and understanding of SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS with hands-on experience with one or more public cloud offerings (AWS, GAE, Oracle, Azure)
  • At least 2 years of experience in creating and implementing RESTful micro-services serving millions of requests a day
  • 5+ years of experience building software
  • Fluency in any modern object-oriented programming language (e.g., Java, Scala, Python, Javascript, go etc.) and in architecture patterns for distributed systems
  • A passion for collaboration and strong communication skills
  • Experience working with cloud-scale messaging, streaming, or storage systems
  • Experience in operational requirements and common challenges of cloud-based systems
  • Can work with remote teams (peers or customers)

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

  • Experience working with agile software development methodologies (e.g., XP, scrum)
  • Enterprise DNA
