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 of “Unleash the potential of every team” is the guiding light behind everything we do. We have developed well-known products (Jira, Confluence, Trello etc…), that fit in the fabric of teamwork across different types of teams, and the processes to help every team succeed. Our Team Playbook includes some of the best practices to maximize the potential of every team and is used by our customers as well as those who have never used in Atlassian product.
The CTO Ops group seeks to design and drive execution and operations of the CTO organization and Cloud Engineering’s strategy and make it a reality. Our team works closely with the engineering leadership team to ensure that Engineering’s operational ‘engine’ is fine tuned and optimized for scale. The members of the team are key participants in influencing Engineering’s operational strategy and aligning it with business objectives.

In this role, you'll get to:

    • Define and own the end to end success of Engineering operational processes
    • Partner with key Engineering leaders and other partner teams to identify new processes, and define clear goals and success criteria
    • Align and drive team members across the CTO organization to translate these goals into reality
    • Routinely exercise continuous improvement, to get the most out of teams

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

    • Ability to wear multiple hats and context-switch frequently and seamlessly
    • Passion for delivery and ability to balance trade-offs as you influence teams toward successful end product(s).
    • Experience and passion in learning new technologies.
    • Knack for building alliances and partnerships across the business as you find creative solutions to high visibility questions.
    • Eager and able to soar at strategic levels as well as dive deeply into details (rolling up your sleeves) in order to deliver concrete outcomes
    • Outstanding track record with cross functional partners: people love to work with you!

It's great, but not required, if you have:

    • Experience or background in running Engineering programs and specifically Open Source programs.
    • Experience in change management, culture evolution and org development.
    • Passion for building and scaling at high-growth companies with a distributed work style.
