Atlassian is continuing to hire with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. Everyone new to the team, along with our current staff, will temporarily work from home until it is safe to return to our offices.
At Atlassian, we help teams everywhere change the world through the power of software. We are looking for a forward-thinking technical guide. As a Principal Engineer, you'll be part of the authority on products that are revolutionizing the software industry and enabling teams to collaborate in delivering their best work. Think NASA launching the Rover on Mars or Cochlear gifting children born deaf with the ability to hear. Our work directly impacts the products they use to advance humanity.
The primary focus of this role will be to take ownership of the broad technical direction to ensure our products are evolving and sustainable for the long term. With the rapidly changing software industry, we are constantly learning and improving our own skills and knowledge, which will ultimately help to grow our products and advance humanity.
More about you
We'd love if you have an extensive background in:
- Full-stack development
- SOA architectures
- API design
- Internet topology
- High-availability, fault-tolerant, and scalable systems
Aside from strong technical prowess including hands-on coding ability, you should have a deep understanding of architecture and an ability to plan for changes. Personality-wise, if you're good with "fixing the plane while in flight" (not just greenfield solutions), this will be a great fit! You will ask tough questions and have a principled but also pragmatic approach to decision-making. You're also the type that loves to teach others and be hands-on yourself.
Finally, you are an effective communicator, able to articulate technical & architectural know-how in a way that will influence the engineering teams towards a united vision and goal because building incredible software cannot be done in isolation but together as one team.
