  • Work closely with the Foundation Leadership team to deliver the Foundation’s strategy including grant-making and impact investments.

  • You have proven experience providing comprehensive program management (or comparable)
  • You are an active volunteer in your community or worked in a not-for-profit role previously

  • You have experience using technologies such as Jira, Confluence, and Trello or any similar software
  • More about our team

    The Atlassian Foundation has twelve members from all over the world – Australia, USA, India and the Philippines.
    We believe we have a responsibility to tackle disadvantage both locally (the communities where we work) and globally. We also believe in the transformational power of both education and business as forces for good. Our team has three pillars:

    We bring out the best of business, by building the Pledge 1% movement.
