Working at Atlassian

Atlassian's 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.


Atlassian is looking for an experienced Global Alliances leader for a General Manager role covering one of our most significant GSI partners. This role reports directly to the Head of Global Alliances, and will be responsible for growing incremental, measurable revenue on a global basis, across a diverse range of enterprise solutions built on the Atlassian Platform.

We are on a mission to help our customers compete and win in the modern, digital economy. We have built a multi-billion-dollar, dynamic software business with over 300,000 paying customers, and millions of users around the globe. Many of these organizations acquire Atlassian tools through our network of partners - including a growing number of Global System Integrators (GSIs).

In this role, you will be responsible for partner engagement and go-to-market efforts, developing a robust pipeline of joint opportunities with some of our largest enterprise customers. Using your experience and leadership skills, you will deliver successful outcomes against our channel targets.

As the Global Alliances team, we help to expand the footprint of Atlassian in key markets and industries, with a specific focus on our enterprise customer segment. Since you will be working with a Strategic partner across a diverse range of solution areas, you will need a broad understanding of enterprise software channel business including channel sales, channel strategy and market development. Most importantly, you will work closely with teams across Atlassian - including sales, marketing, product development and others - to build success.


  • You want to be a part of something big. You enjoy pursuing challenges and making your mark. You are passionate about continuous learning and improvement, and you are excited about building out a scalable business.

  • Your decision process is a balance of vision and analytics, using data to inform your investments while still focusing on a long-term view. And you are an effective communicator in building your business case and getting organizational buy-in to support your recommendations.

  • Substantial experience in Channel Management and/or Channel Sales

  • Experience building and managing Global Alliance partnerships

  • Strong communication skills - both through language and cultural understanding globally

  • An understanding of how to deliver as a cross-functional leader by engaging with and influencing other groups within the organization

  • The ability to focus and drive channel initiatives, but also keep an eye on the business as a whole

  • A proven record of meeting or exceeding performance metrics - both sales/bookings as well as non-revenue targets

  • A strong history of making a positive impact outside of the individual role


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: $222,800 - $297,000

Zone B: $200,500 - $267,300

Zone C: $184,900 - $246,600

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