Design Manager, Jira Product Discovery (remote in Germany)

Apply for this job

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.

Jira Product Discovery helps teams capture, flesh out and prioritise ideas, so they can build what matters. With a place to capture insights and opportunities, prioritize impact, and rally teams behind product plans – from discovery through to delivery.

This Design Manager role is a unique opportunity to join a fast-moving team on the cutting edge of modern product craft. You’ll work in a close-knit leadership to steer this opportunity to market, guiding a team with the autonomy of a startup with access to the resources, brand, and scale of a global Fortune 100 company.

We're seeking a problem-solver, who loves talking to customers and has a track record of taking new products and services to market and can tackle the unique challenges of integrating them with established platforms. Someone who will take the lead with a team of product and content designers, helping direct their work and mentoring their growth.

Do you get weirdly passionate about small details that can make or break a feature? Do you find yourself thinking for hours about the future of software development? Then this job could be for you!

Does this sound like you?

  • Hands-on product design experience, bonus points if it was for SaaS platforms.
  • People management experience,
  • Expertise in product design (UI, UX, and Research) and modern design tooling e.g. Figma, Miro, and Keynote.
  • Experience taking minimum viable products, services or large features to the market.
  • Strong UI skills, and experience working with (and pushing the boundaries of) established design systems
  • Have a strong history of optimally collaborating with a team of designers, engineers, product managers, and additional key partners.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Able to operate with uncertainty and make data-driven decisions without complete evidence
  • Enjoy designing experiments using a combination of qualitative and quantitative data to measure success – you’re also not afraid to admit when you are wrong about a hypothesis.
  • Very strong visual design skills, bonus point if you designed a consumer-grade product
  • Ability to work well in fast-paced teams that ship often.

What will you do?

  • Define major product experiences to help grow the Jira Product Discovery business.
  • Bring a hypothesis-driven, data advised approach to your work.
  • Spend as much time getting to know and understand our customers as possible, analyzing their feedback to influence design decisions.
  • Work closely with product managers and engineers to define product specs and iterate on experiences as they are delivered.
  • Collaborate across other teams at Atlassian to encourage cross-flow and platform adoption that enables Atlassian as a whole to scale.
  • Help maintain, improve, and scale our current product experience.
  • Lead a team of product and content designer, collaborating in the team on a daily basis
  • Work with product managers to provide to define a long term vision of the product experience.
