Technical Program Manager – Privacy Incidents


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 from an office (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 our dedicated Privacy Technical Program Manager for all-things related to incidents, you will have the opportunity to help shape the future of the intersection of privacy and technology at Atlassian. Privacy is a rapidly evolving sector, and the collaboration between privacy, incident management, crisis management and engineering is increasingly important. This role forms the bridge between the legal and technical worlds, empowering privacy to be a foundational component in our incident response process. You will report directly into the Privacy Legal team, but work cross-functionally across teams in security, engineering, product, IT, marketing, and others.

Our customers expect and deserve a cloud software that is compliant with industry standards and puts their privacy first. In this role you will lead an effort that ensures we have a continuous and comprehensive view into our privacy posture and ability to respond when the unexpected happens. You’ll drive projects to create and evolve tools and processes that will make incident response an automated, well-oiled machine.

Successful candidates will have a solid track record of program and project management and SaaS software development and will have demonstrated excellent leadership, along with superior organizational and communication skills in leading teams and programs to deliver successful outcomes. In addition, the right candidate will possess learning agility in the privacy sector (with our legal team’s help, of course), experience in incident management, and an understanding of business strategy, product direction and technical architecture, so they can make decisions to accelerate initiatives at any level of depth.


Minimum Qualifications:


  • BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent work experience
  • 5+ years of leadership experience on software teams as a development manager or TPM
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Experience leading projects spanning multiple teams, covering all of the following
  • Accountable for creating and driving the schedule

    Preferred Qualifications:


  • Ability to exercise technical judgment in solving software engineering challenges
  • Experience with SaaS on public cloud
  • Experience in software development in one or more general-purpose programming languages
  • Experience with agile processes
  • Experience building tools, dashboards, and automation to increase transparency and reduce toil
  • Experience in incident management
