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
Atlassian is looking for experienced and talented engineers to join our team in Sydney! These Product and Platform teams are looking for innovative Frontend developers to help us build for the future. You'll be responsible for the design, build and maintenance of product and platform services, and infrastructure that powers Atlassian Cloud. We build always-on, low-latency, high-concurrency micro-services and systems that scale for millions of users. This is a role with broad technical responsibilities across all our products with greenfield projects and technologies, not a product maintenance type of role. You will play a key role in shaping the Atlassian Cloud Platform. Using your programming expertise and deep understanding of modern web architectures and distributed systems, you will help future-proof our established products by designing, implementing, integrating, tuning and issue resolution new micro-services, software libraries, tools and applications.
More about our team
Work with a team of amazing developers and designers to build simple, beautiful and consistent user experiences for our web apps. We are always growing, learning, and adapting, in and out of the office. Our teams are crazy smart and direct and we ask hard questions and challenge each other to constantly improve our work. We are driven but team oriented. We're dedicated to agile methodology and big believers in 'lean' (which means we don’t do documentation for documentation's sake). We know the importance of validating our assumptions about users and implement various types of testing to prove assumptions right or wrong. Our bottom line is improving our user’s experience - no matter what.

On your first day, we'd love for you to have:

    • Great experience across the board with a strong depth of knowledge in Javascript (ReactJS)
    • Keen interest in open source and learning new technologies
    • Understanding of how to build performant, decoupled, testable, maintainable code
    • Enjoyment of sharing knowledge with teammates, and working collaboratively when you need help

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

    • The ability to write components in vanilla JavaScript, but the intelligence to leverage existing libraries when it makes sense
    • We're heavily using React and Redux, and we write all new code with ES6 features, so familiarity with some or all of these is helpful
    • Some industry experience with public cloud offerings (e.g., AWS, GAE, Azure)
    • Understanding of typical web application, SOA and micro-services patterns.
    • Knowledge of open source libraries, tools and frameworks (e.g. for logging, wiring, testing, building)
    • Ability and willingness to learn new programming languages, frameworks and paradigms
