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.
We're looking for a talented Senior Privacy & Product Counsel to join our dynamic and collaborative legal team at Atlassian! You'll be joining a quickly growing team of privacy professionals helping build a privacy program that puts fundamental rights first, builds customer trust in our platform, and leads our industry on privacy and social impact.
Like our customers, we use Atlassian products to lead the charge in the future of work, and collaborate asynchronously with global teams. We believe in open and collaborative work, leading with kindness and empathy, and delivering thought leadership beyond what's required for "minimum legal compliance". It helps to bring a growth mindset, a desire to use and understand our products, intellectual curiosity, and a thirst for innovation!
In This Role, You'll Get To:
  • Have a direct impact on the success of Atlassian's rapidly scaling Cloud business, forging relationships with senior leaders and leading a growing a team under you
  • Help strengthen Atlassian's privacy program by advising on data platform and lifecycle practices - focusing on proper data access, use, ethics, and retention
  • Provide guidance on compliance with global privacy and data security laws, regulations and industry standards. No more law firm memos!
  • Partner with the business (engineering, product, analytics, security, etc.) on global privacy related initiatives
  • Support efforts to build trustworthy, data privacy-conscious products that our customers love
  • Design scalable processes for implementation
  • Provide product counseling throughout the development process
  • Creatively build upon and drive awareness around privacy and data protection issues, including developing and delivering training on relevant privacy, data security, and data governance-related matters
  • Engage with the privacy legal community to understand evolving issues and to help Atlassian provide an industry-leading privacy program for our customers and partners

  • More About You
  • You're an enthusiastic and empathetic people leader
  • You have a strong understanding of software technology and cloud services, associated business models, and technology industry trends
  • You're keenly aware of privacy and data protection issues that our users - end users, organization administrators, developers, enterprise customers, or consumers - are likely focused on when considering or using our products
  • You have a solid understanding of global privacy and data protection law and trends
  • You listen carefully to understand the challenges faced by the business in meeting legal requirements
  • You apply this experience, knowledge, and customer-centric thinking to provide privacy legal advice in support of our products, customer engagements, acquired companies, and internal business operations
  • You think creatively beyond the "legal" box to generate possible solutions and options for the business, clearly articulating ethical and risk-based recommendations
  • You effectively communicate with the business to help them understand and follow the rules and parameters imposed by data privacy laws
  • You take initiative to learn new subject areas, whether new laws, new technologies or new business strategies
  • You effectively navigate a decentralized and complex organization spread across the globe
  • You build relationships with business partners to strengthen the connection between our team and the business

  • On Your First Day, We'll Expect You To Have
  • Qualified to practice law in your local jurisdiction
  • 6+ years practicing law and qualified to proactive law in your local jurisdiction
  • CIPP certification
  • Passion to understand our customers, products, culture, and business model
  • Deep knowledge of applicable privacy regulations (GDPR, CCPA/CPRA, etc.)
  • Extensive experience working with technical teams to develop customer-centric solutions
  • Practical experience and deep understanding of AI/machine learning and data analytics, and the impact on product development, data lifecycle, and customer expectations
  • A knack for distilling complex legal and technical concepts into plain, concise language
  • Strong judgment, intellectual curiosity, and a moral compass that takes your understanding, work product, and client relationships to the next level
  • Demonstrated growth attitude and the ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, and remote-friendly workplace
  • A technical background isn't required, but a basic understanding of software engineering is a definite plus, as is a deep understanding of Atlassian's products, platform, and ecosystem, or an ability to quickly learn new business and technology concepts

An Insider's view of Atlassian

What's something quirky about your company?

Atlassian creates a culture that sees and understands employees as humans. We take time to celebrate how weird we all are, and it shows in the work we do.

Kesha

Product Marketing Manager

What is your vision for the company?

As the world gets eaten be software, Atlassian plays a foundational role: how do we help knowledge leaders articulate how business operates today? How do we engage 'visioneers' to help reimagine an analog process into something digital? And how do we ensure that we enable developers to be as productive and effective as possible?

Noah Wasmer

Head of Tech Teams
