Channel Manager – BeNeLux

Atlassian

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.

Do you want to help drive Atlassian’s business in Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg? We are seeking a passionate channel manager who understands how to drive business together with specialist and strategic partners, and with a proven track record of working successfully with medium and large consultancy and services companies.
The Channel Manager’s primary responsibility is to focus on extending Atlassian’s business model through the recruitment and development of a portfolio of consulting and services Partners. The Manager will be responsible for finding, growing and shaping partners to build Atlassian mind and market share in the region. Atlassian is growing and we are looking for an exceptional individual who understands the channel business, and also understands how to grow and manage a region. Recruiting and enabling partners is a large part of the position, as is the ability to drive marketing and sales activities with your partners to increase brand awareness and Atlassian product adoption.

More about you:
You are a highly motivated, analytically driven businessperson who can work independently as well as play as a team.

You have worked with Partners directly and understand their culture and business needs to help motivate and build a successful Partner. Although you have experience in the enterprise space at successful software companies, you don’t like the go-to-market approaches of legacy vendors and want to rewrite the book on how business can be done. “Recruit, Enable, and Sell” is your motto, and Partners actually enjoy building business plans with you.

  • Experience that demonstrates an ability to establish and maintain relationships effectively
  • Strong sales acumen to enable and drive partners as well as align with Atlassian’s Enterprise Account Team
  • Channel marketing experience to incorporate comprehensive demand generation into joint business planning, ability to actively contribute to local marketing activities.
  • Outgoing, self-motivated, organized, team-oriented interpersonal skills, creative, high level of integrity, and with a can-do attitude. Not afraid to deep-dive into operational day-to-day.
  • Exceptional oral and written communication skills
  • Native Dutch, Fluency in English
