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.
Job Description
Here at Trello, we celebrate the many ways we work. With a team of over one hundred, we connect from Atlanta coworking spaces, Minnesota forests, Hawaii beaches and our beautiful headquarters in Manhattan, where this position will be based. We expect our developers to contribute more than just code. You’ll be involved in defining how things work, what they do, and why we do that instead of something else.  We also expect you to share your knowledge and expertise with everyone else. In other words, we’re all whole humans and expect the same from you. If that interests you, read on to learn more about the role.

Key Responsibilities

    • Add and support new features in Trello that will ship to over 50 million users.
    • Work with Product Managers, Designers, and other Developers to refine feature design and functionality.
    • We use the following technologies on the back-end team at Trello: JavaScript / CoffeeScript, Node.js, Mongo, - Redis. Experience in these particular technologies isn’t a requirement for applying, but you’ll be using them daily.

More About You:

    • You have experience improving large scale web applications.
    • You prefer to focus on server work with occasional full-stack tasks.
    • You have a passion for making features that are quick, useful, and easy to use.
    • You strive to master any technology, language, or development environment that is needed or useful.
    • You’re a fast learner, can contribute from day one, and can bring good opinions to the table.
    • You have an excellent command of written and spoken English, and communicate about what you're doing with your coworkers.

More About Us:

    • Our developers and designers run the show with management existing only to support, not dictate. We hire creative people and give them the autonomy to do great work. We're strongly against artificial separations of responsibility and throwing work "over the wall."
    • Our office is in New York City (but you don't have to be).
    • We built Trello to be a remarkably great place to work.
We welcome all applicants regardless of race, color, ethnicity, actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, national origin, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, marital status, parental status, or caregiver status.
