Do you have a passion for tackling groundbreaking privacy questions like AI/ML? Are you keen to drive the evolution and maturation of our global privacy program? Do you bring a relentless customer obsession to every business interaction? Do you want to be part of a mission-lead technology company as we scale for sustainable growth?

If you answered “heck yeah” to all of the above, let’s talk! We are looking for a seasoned and highly skilled Privacy leader who has the ability to set a strategic vision for a world-class privacy function and turn that vision into reality. The right candidate will effectively lead transformation across Atlassian’s Privacy team and cross-functionally throughout the company.

On Your First Day We’ll Expect You To Have

  • Demonstrated ability to support and collaborate with cross-functional executives (C-suite, Chief Trust Officer, CISO, Board members etc.). A history of developing a culture of getting to “yes and”.

  • Deep understanding of privacy laws, regulations, and frameworks, such as GDPR, CPRA, HIPAA, and ISO 27001. Insight into the generative AI industry and emerging trends.

  • The ability to think BIG and chart a strategic direction for the Privacy team. The ability to develop followership and explain the “why” behind this strategic vision.

  • Passion for leading a growing and hungry Privacy team, with demonstrated success in hiring the best talent on the market, and developing their careers.

  • Strong communication skills that translate complex privacy topics into easily digestible content for technical teams.

  • Direct, action-oriented approaches to solving problems.

  • The ability to thrive in a fast-changing environment.

  • A team-oriented mentality, humility, and a healthy sense of humor.

  • Background in software development / data science a plus.


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: $324,000 - $400,000

Zone B: $324,000 - $400,000

Zone C: $324,000 - $400,000

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