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’s mission is the guiding light behind what we do. We are well known as the creators of products such as Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, Statuspage, and Trello that are used by thousands of teams worldwide in every aspect of teamwork.

Our IT Solutions portfolio consists of four products:

You will stay on top of the technology landscape, evaluate the use of new technologies, and bring ideas to the team. You will be influential within your team and work with peers and senior leaders to embrace and improve operational excellence standards across Atlassian.
