Principal Program Manager, Inside Atlassian


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.

Inside Atlassian started as a small team of 2 with the belief that Atlassian IT will be our first, and best customer. In this short time, we have doubled down on this priority, grown the team and proven the value that can be delivered through this vision. With our small team, we have influenced Atlassian product roadmaps, guided customers through our adoption journey & best practices, and established ourselves as a valued Enterprise customer for Atlassian. We are now looking to hit the accelerator to unleash the vast potential of this program as Atlassian grows our Enterprise customer base. This is an exciting time to join the Team and help us scale what was just an idea in the recent past!
