Associate Product Manager Program

Future technology leaders start here

The Atlassian Associate Product Manager (APM) program is designed to accelerate the development of exceptional and creative problem solvers, cultivating the next generation of global leaders in the world of technology. 

The APM program takes part in two, 12-month rotations, offering you the opportunity to gain the full breadth of experience in a Product Manager role.

Whether you’re launching a feature, diving into why an experiment failed or providing insights into your first product requirements, you will be supported every step of the way, as part of a tight-knit community.

Valuable learnings from day-one

During your rotations as an Atlassian APM, you’ll be offered a number of learning opportunities. 

Starting with a comprehensive onboarding program, you’ll them move onto 1:1 mentorship, learning from industry leaders during a speaker series, and on-the-job shipping. You’ll also gain hands-on experience supporting our customers, helping them unleash their full potential.

Who we hire

Our APM program, just like the rest of our organisation, thrives on diversity. That means, we don't look for a specific type of background or degree to be considered for this program. 

Instead, we look for candidates with exceptional problem-solving skills, a high degree of empathy for customers, and an eye for building delightful experiences. Skills and real-life examples we look for:

  • Great communication skills
  • A learning mindset and curiosity
  • Proven leadership experience
  • Delivering outcomes in a meaningful way

Where we hire

Team Anywhere is our approach to distributed work. We created this unique policy to give our employees more flexibility, tap into pools of talent beyond urban hubs, and to reimagine how work gets done – both for ourselves and our customers.

The APM program is available to candidates based across North America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We offer you the flexibility to work remotely, in the office, or anywhere in-between.
