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.
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, services, and reseller Partners in Spanish-speaking South America. The Channel Manager will be responsible for growing and shaping Partners to build Atlassian’s mind and market share in the region. We are looking for an exceptional individual who understands how to navigate a growing channel business and how to build a region.
