Senior Manager, Program Management (Migrations)


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.

We’re looking for an experienced Senior Manager who can drive meaningful business outcomes for Atlassian as a Program Management leader within our Customer Support Services (CSS) organization.

At Atlassian, we’re building a seamless customer migration journey from server to cloud as our customers become more and more comfortable with cloud offerings. This is a high-profile, fast paced portfolio of programs that requires strong strategic experience, willingness to experiment and pivot quickly, and proven ability to drive big outcomes across company-wide stakeholder teams and global partner groups. Atlassian is laser-focused on driving success for these customer migrations to Cloud as a company. As such, this program is the premier program within the CSS portfolio which will drive outcomes through migration tooling improvements, partner program improvements/enablement, operational excellence, and unique service offerings based on customer demand.

Are you passionate about owning a premier program that translates directly into business success for Atlassian? Then we need you!

In this role, your peer group will be senior managers leading other domains in the CSS portfolio. Your team will include senior program managers focused on Migration program success. You’ll partner heavily with our CSS business architecture and analytics teams for strategy, planning, and measuring outcomes.
