Working at Atlassian

Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Assuming you have eligible working rights and a sufficient time zone overlap with your team, you can choose to work remotely or return to an office as they reopen (unless it’s necessary for your role to be performed in the office). Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

With a sufficient timezone overlap with the team, we’re able to hire eligible candidates for this role from any location in Australia and New Zealand. If this sparks your interest, apply today and chat with our friendly Recruitment team further. 

Atlassian is looking for talented Developers to join one of our Sydney engineering teams (i.e. Jira Server, Jira Cloud, Growth, etc.) Atlassian's engineering team is responsible for shaping the future by helping thousands of teams all around the world get work done.

As a Developer well into your career, we know you're exceptional at what you do, but you're still eager to learn and hone in on skills as a developer... That's why we're placing a heavy emphasis on leaning on your expertise in one or more tech stacks but still learning and growing. We don't expect you to be an expert, but we'll sure make sure you get on the right path towards becoming one...

In this role, you'll get the chance to:

  • Drive projects independently, from technical design to launch
  • Apply architectural standards and start using them on new projects
  • Contribute to code reviews & documentation as well as take on complex bug fixes
  • Begin writing useful technical documentation
  • Learn and code in Java
  • Mentor more junior members

Sound like an exciting opportunity? We think so too... In order to set you up for impact on day one, we'll expect you to have this on your first day:

  • You will not be required to know a specific programming language, however experience with a prominent language such as Java, Python, C#, C/C++, or Ruby is crucial.
  • Deep understanding of data structures, in particular, how they are implemented and how to apply them to solve problems
  • Passion for collaborating, tackling hard problems and not being afraid to ask questions
  • A real appetite for learning and growing, both as a developer and teammate.

Wait, I don't have Java experience and you still want to interview me? 

That's right! At Atlassian, we hire engineers that can demonstrate their ability to learn and keep up with new and emerging technologies. It's true that Atlassian's stack is primarily written in Java and in the role you'll be coding primarily in Java, but we do believe in using the right tools for the job rather than being tied to the tool (e.g. Java). We happen to have a variety of languages within our stack including Kotlin, Python, and Ruby.

For the interview process, we want to see you at your best. This means that during the interview, we want you to code in whatever language you feel you're best at. This will give us a sense of your skills as a developer, which is all we need to make a proper assessment for this role. 

Our perks & benefits

To support you at work and play, our perks and benefits include ample time off, an annual education budget, paid volunteer days, and so much more.
