Atlassian is continuing to hire with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. All new and existing Atlassians will continue to work from home until it’s safe to return to our offices. When our offices re-open, we will provide the choice to work from home or return to work in an office unless a job requirement makes it necessary for a particular role to be performed at an Atlassian office.
Atlassian helps teams everywhere change the world. Our products are revolutionising the software industry and helping teams collaborate and craft the magic that delivers their best work. Think NASA launching the Rover on Mars or Cochlear gifting those born deaf with the ability to hear, your work directly impacts the products they use to advance humanity.
We're looking for an Engineering Manager to lead a team of developers at our HQ in Sydney. We're a team of developers working on critical backend services behind every request to Atlassian products, and evolving them to support new use cases. Our high-performance services provide novel high-availability distributed cache technology. We are critical to the reliability and performance of Atlassian products, yet we're able to use an agile process and move quickly by being passionate about our operational quality and impact on our customers. We'd love you to bring new insights to our engineering culture, and you'll get to work with a wide variety of other teams across Atlassian, as our services have a lot of internal customers!
You'll be responsible for building effective teams, empowering them to achieve their goals, and putting those goals into broader context. Your greatest responsibility will be looking after the individuals reporting to you, mentoring and supporting them in their professional development, unlocking their potential, and challenging them to step outside their comfort zone to grow and excel. You'll work closely with product management and other teams to manage the direction of the project.

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • Significant experience with building large scale web software
  • Experience leading a development team in (at least) a technical capacity
  • Familiarity with agile software development methodologies
  • Ability to drive technical culture, pushing innovation and quality
  • Strong organisation and communication skills
  • Ability to help a remote team maintain good cohesion and teamwork culture
  • Ability to guide a team to sustain a high-quality operational culture

Experience in the following is preferred:

  • Employee performance & growth management
  • Experience with large scale distributed systems
  • Experience with microservices and general understanding of building systems in one or more cloud platforms - enough to guide the team, but we don't require specific hands-on work
  • Continuous delivery and production operations
More about our benefits
Whether you work in an office or a distributed team, Atlassian is highly collaborative and yes, fun! To support you at work (and play) we offer some fantastic perks: ample time off to relax and recharge, flexible working options, five paid volunteer days a year for your favourite cause, an annual allowance to support your learning & growth, unique ShipIt days, a company paid trip after five years and lots more.
