  • Full Time

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.

As we expand our Atlassian footprint in India in mid-2022, we can recruit eligible candidates for this role who are located in Karnataka, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Delhi NCR and Maharashtra. If this sparks your interest, apply today and chat with our friendly Recruitment team.

We’re hiring a Principal Recruiter, reporting to Recruiting Manager. The Executive Search team plays a critical role in unleashing the potential of our team, helping us to inclusively hire multiplier leaders that empower the Atlassian team to deliver remarkable outcomes for customers. We serve as partners to Atlassian’s Leadership Group (ALG) in building their team, serving as strategic advisors who offer much more than a filled position.

Executive Recruiters embed within specific crafts and teams, serving as Client Leads for our C-Suite and their direct leaders, driving everything from interview process and search strategy to executive compensation.

  • The ability to drive projects from creation to launch to improve outcomes within Executive Search, and Talent Acquisition overall (such as vendor management strategy and candidate experience enhancements)
