Impact Programs Manager


Location: Remote - US only

Job Type: Full time


Are you inspired by the Atlassian Foundation’s mission to unleash the potential of social impact teams?

The Atlassian Foundation has set big, hairy, audacious goals to move the needle on the health, effectiveness, and collaboration of social impact teams so that they can better achieve their missions.

We are looking for an Impact Programs Manager to join the Atlassian Foundation team and meaningfully advance our progress towards these goals.

Our team backs ambitious and innovative nonprofits and social enterprises with a powerful combination of Atlassian’s people, funding, products and practices. Atlassian, a co-founder of the Pledge 1% movement, contributes 1% of its equity, profit, employee time and products to the Atlassian Foundation to have a positive impact on a global scale. We are a passionate enabler of teamwork and collaboration in the social impact sector.

This role is focused on leading and contributing to our impact programs that support and enable nonprofit and social impact teams with Atlassian products, practices, and ways of working.

To ensure sufficient timezone overlap with the team, we can hire eligible candidates for this role from the United States and Australia (East Coast).

When you read through the requirements of the role below, don’t give up if you don’t meet them all. If you tick some of the requirements, great! Throw your hat in the ring and let’s go from there.


At Atlassian, we strive to design equitable, explainable, and competitive compensation programs. To support this goal, the baseline of our range is higher than that of the typical market range, but in turn we expect to hire most candidates near this baseline. Base pay within the range is ultimately determined by a candidate's skills, expertise, or experience. In the United States, we have three geographic pay zones. For this role, our current base pay ranges for new hires in each zone are:

Zone A: $114,300 - $152,300

Zone B: $102,800 - $137,100

Zone C: $94,800 - $126,400

This role may also be eligible for benefits, bonuses, commissions, and equity.

Please visit for more information on which locations are included in each of our geographic pay zones. However, please confirm the zone for your specific location with your recruiter.

On your first day, you will bring:

  • 5+ years of experience in product marketing, marketing communications, and/or community building with relevant subject matter experience in the social impact/nonprofit sector.

  • A robust track record of success as a program/project manager with the ability to drive impactful marketing and communication initiatives from ideation to execution to monitoring/evaluation.

  • Experience prioritising, managing, and tracking multiple complex projects simultaneously with the ability to work autonomously in a fast-paced, high-growth environment.

  • Experience creating website copy, customer stories, blog and enablement content with a keen understanding on how to utilize various channels to promote content.

  • A keen eye for detail and a strong desire to uphold high standards of excellence

  • A truly self-motivated desire to constantly learn, develop and grow in the role

  • A bias for action, constantly striving to get things done.

  • A problem solver mindset; willing to adapt when necessary; comfortable with ambiguity, and empowered to “be the change you seek”

  • An ability to communicate well with stakeholders from all across the business at many different levels, and enjoy it!

  • A high level of comfort working with remote/hybrid teams and the ability to work with an eclectic mix of geographically dispersed stakeholders; willing to coordinate among different global time zones and be available for periodic early morning or late evening calls

A strong candidate will be:

  • A comfortable, proven self-starter with the ability to drive an idea from inception to execution, always with a mindset of measurement, evaluation, learning and iteration.

  • Flexible, self-motivated, and curious with sense of humour.

  • A team player who embodies a “We” over “I” mentality, yet balances a team-first approach with the ability to autonomously execute work.

  • A top-notch communicator, adept at building and maintaining trust-based and productive relationships.

  • Adept at relationship development and stakeholder management across Atlassian and the social impact sector.

It's a bonus if you:

  • Have experience with design thinking and human-centered design methodology and practice

  • Have significant, relevant work experience in the nonprofit/social impact sector

  • Have proficiency in technical project management, data visualization, BI, and SEO tools.
