Working at Atlassian

Atlassians can choose where they work – whether in an office, from home, or a combination of the two. That way, Atlassians have more control over supporting their family, personal goals, and other priorities. We can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

This hands-on role requires a candidate capable of strategic thinking and seeing the big picture, as well as diving into the intricacies to refine and perfect the details.
