Solutions Sales Readiness Manager

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.

Sales Enablement at Atlassian is a blend of art & science – the art of expanding the Atlassian ‘no sales’ philosophy of adopting a simplified experience with the customer, combined with the science of understanding how to build effective product enthusiasts out of every individual and role in our direct and channel sales organizations.

Atlassian is looking for an Enablement specialist to onboard, enable, and train our customer-facing organizations who help Atlassian customers make informed decisions based on the capabilities of Atlassian’s products.
