Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity, assuming candidates have eligible working rights and a sufficient timezone overlap with their team. As our offices re-open, Atlassians can choose to work remotely or return to an office, unless it’s necessary for the 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 and talented 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 collaborate often with other developers to write the best code for the project and deliver amazing results that our users love. You would not be afraid to speak their mind even if it is blasphemy for other engineers. We are looking for that elusive person who is pragmatic and surefooted even in dark.

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, IaaS with hands-on experience of one or more public cloud offerings (AWS, GAE, Oracle, Azure)
  • At least 2 years of experience in crafting and implementing high-performance 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 real passion for collaboration and has strong interpersonal skills supported by eloquently written communication
  • Experience working with cloud-scale messaging, streaming, or storage systems
  • Experience in operational requirements and common challenges of cloud-based systems
  • Adept at working with minimal guidance and working 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
