Posted 10 days ago

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.

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. 

As a developer in Atlassian’s Delivery Engineering team, you will build solutions to improve, scale and maintain Atlassian’s world-class development tools to support Atlassian engineers as they deploy changes to their applications. You’ll work on many different microservices using a variety of tech stacks while also orchestrating, extending and monitoring large, complex applications. You’ll have a direct impact on how thousands of Atlassian engineers ship changes to production.

More about our team
The Delivery Engineering team builds and maintains services that enable safe deployments on Atlassian’s internal microservice platform. Although we’re not a big team, we have a large impact by helping teams roll out changes to their applications in a secure but speedy manner.
We follow modern development best-practices and apply these to our operational work. As Atlassian grows, so do the applications we provide, and we find interesting edge cases and opportunities to improve our services for higher scale.
We also serve as domain specialists to our developers to help them embrace best practices in their CD pipelines, and to debug any particularly tricky issues they have with using our platform. Additionally, since Atlassian operates with a “you build it, you run it” philosophy; with that in mind, each engineer is on-call about once out of every 6-8 weeks to ensure the availability of our critical systems.
Although supporting our services and Atlassian engineers is extremely important, so is having the space to explore and learn; to that end, we explicitly set time aside for innovation and experimentation (at least 2 weeks a quarter), and we are always on the lookout for new technologies or tooling to help us achieve our goals.
You may or may not have much experience with CD but if you enjoy automating repetitive tasks, investigating and unclogging bottlenecks and working in areas that span through cloud infrastructure, operating systems and application environments then this is the team for you.

On your first day, it would be great if you have:

  • a strong understanding of modern programming practices, including application of the right data structures and algorithms to solve problems
  • knowledge of an Object Oriented programming language (ideally Kotlin/Java)
  • experience in automating repetitive tasks via scripting in bash, python or similar
  • exposure to at least one cloud provider (e.g., AWS, GAE, Azure), ideally with familiarity in building and maintaining infrastructure
  • prior experience in driving small-to-medium projects independently, from technical design to launch, including stakeholder management and communication
  • the ability to diagnose and troubleshoot user-facing service outages; this will involve participating in our on-call roster and being on a maintenance rotation
  • experience providing support for your solutions to a technical user base
  • We’d be super excited if you have any of the following:

  • knowledge of, and experience with, DevOps practices and philosophies
  • previous experience with any Continuous Delivery/Continuous Deployment tools (e.g. Spinnaker)
  • experience building and running applications on top of Kubernetes
  • software development skills across a variety of tech stacks
  • experience in incident management and being on-call in support of production applications
  • More about our benefits

    Whether you work in an office or a distributed team, Atlassian is highly collaborative and yes, fun! To support you at work (and play) we offer some fantastic perks: ample time off to relax and recharge, flexible working options, five paid volunteer days a year for your favourite cause, an annual allowance to support your learning & growth, unique ShipIt days, a company paid trip after five years and lots more.
