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 is hiring its first employment attorney in APAC. We have approximately 3,800 workers across APAC and are growing fast. This is a great opportunity to work on novel issues in an exciting environment and to provide pragmatic legal counsel on the full range of workforce issues. What does this mean for you? A lot of opportunity to put your stamp on how we handle workforce matters in APAC for years to come.
Role and Responsibilities
Reporting to the Head of Global Employment Law, you will primarily handle a diverse and challenging array of employment matters in support of the company’s workforce in APAC (our footprint is expanding rapidly and our workforce is located in several locations throughout APAC, including Australia, India, New Zealand, Philippines, and Japan). You will partner with the People Team (including HR Business Partners, Employee Relations Partners, Talent and Talent Acquisition, Compensation, Benefits, and Mobility teams) and management to provide guidance on all facets of employment and labor law, play a leading role in ensuring multi-jurisdictional compliance, and perform a variety of other legal duties as needed.
The ideal candidate will have a high level of integrity and attention to detail and excellent writing, communication, and interpersonal skills. This position will be located in Australia, with potential for occasional travel.
