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.

Atlassian helps teams everywhere change the world. Our products are revolutionizing the software industry and helping teams collaborate and craft the magic that delivers their best work. Think NASA launching the Rover on Mars or Cochlear gifting those born deaf with the ability to hear, your work directly impacts the products they use to advance humanity.

We're looking for an Engineering Manager to lead a team of developers for our Media platform, which powers file uploads and attachments across our Cloud products like Jira, Confluence, and Bitbucket. You will be responsible for helping build and maintain an effective team, empowering them to achieve their goals. You provide and use inspiration and creativity to help the team solve difficult challenges and drive outcomes. With your software engineering expertise, you will support the team to flesh out and provide guidance on engineering initiatives, technical designs, and new and existing features.

In this role, you will also be responsible for the management of individuals reporting to you. You will be coaching, mentoring, and supporting them in their professional development to help unlock their full potential and grow.

In this role you'll get to:

  • Collaborate with other platform and product teams every day
  • Work on a system that handles up to a million requests per minute and hosts multiple petabytes of data for our Cloud customers
  • Help software engineers troubleshoot complex technical problems at scale
  • Work with a mix of software developers across all levels of seniority
  • On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • Familiarity with agile software development methodologies
  • Experience with designing back-end systems and APIs
  • Ability to drive technical excellence, pushing innovation and quality

  • More about our team

    You’ll be joining a team that is passionate about building great software and delivering a rock-solid platform that all of Atlassian Cloud products can rely on. We challenge each other constantly to improve, always asking difficult questions and pushing personal and professional growth. This team is focused on building features for enterprise-scale customers with performance, reliability, scale-ability and security in mind. We take care of the heavy-lifting in the background, from access control, large scale data migrations, to increasing our global deployment footprint. As such, this team has a direct impact on the growth of Atlassian.

    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.
