Working at Atlassian

Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Assuming you have eligible working rights and a sufficient time zone overlap with your team, you can choose to work remotely or return to an office as they reopen (unless it’s necessary for your role to be performed in the office). Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

We're looking for a Senior Architect to join our Identity team, within the Sydney timezone. You'll be looking to solve large scale problems and deliver the next wave of authentication and authorisation platform innovation that will be leveraged by Atlassian's growing suite of cloud products. The Identity platform plays the critical role of providing fundamental building blocks upon which all Atlassian products run. Whether that be for our heavily used existing products (e.g. Jira), acquisitions or new internally / externally built products.
Identity also has the important responsibility of navigating the need for seamless collaboration amongst people, teams and organizations whilst also keeping our customers secure as they collaborate. Helping our customers to best navigate that tension is at the heart of Identity's mission.
You'll play a force-multiplier role, steering the platform strategy, laying sound engineering principles, and driving scalable, fit-for-purpose architecture. You will also work closely with Product Management, Design, and Engineering Leadership to help inform product and platform strategy, and will report directly to the Head of Engineering.

On your first day, we'll expect you to:

  • Work closely with product and engineering management to define the technical strategy and roadmap for the Identity platform.
  • Partner with technical teams across Atlassian, solving architectural challenges for company-wide initiatives, often spanning across several projects.
  • Provide the product management teams with valuable insights into developer experience and contribute towards feature brainstorming.
  • Keep on top of industry trends to better inform our approach and ensure our Identity platform continues to delight developers.
  • Support principal engineers and architects with technical mentorship and growth.
  • Encourage teams to drive innovation, unlock chances to create impactful technology for our Identity developers and customers.
  • Our perks & benefits

    To support you at work and play, our perks and benefits include ample time off, an annual education budget, paid volunteer days, and so much more.
