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.
At Atlassian, we've built a billion dollar, fast-growing business based on high-quality products, free trials and a focus on customer satisfaction. Interested evaluators convert to paying customers, activating a prolific "Flywheel" that has delivered 200,000+ customers to date. Our Product Advocate team comes into play prior to or during a customer's evaluation journey, and serves as the product experts to help connect our solutions with their needs. We inspire trial activations and ultimately purchases by supporting customers with recommendations and resources based on our deep product knowledge of features and functionalities. In turn, we provide our product and marketing teams with customer feedback to guide roadmap prioritization and messaging optimization.
As the ultimate mission of our team is to provide best-in-class customer support, our success metrics are built to reflect this. Responding to customers in a timely manner and capturing their satisfaction with our response, are the two biggest ways we measure success. We need folks who are passionate about giving accurate, helpful information to our pre-evaluators and evaluators so they can make an informed decision. We rely on our products, and our knowledgeable team of Product Advocates explaining the benefits of those products, to drive sales.
More About You
We are looking for positive, professionally curious people who have technical chops, an innate ability to delight customers, and a burning desire to seek out and drive change for our products, processes, and performance. If you're looking to work for a game-changing company, and you have an analytical and innovative mindset you'd like to use to influence the direction of a healthy and growing suite of software development tools, then Atlassian is the place for you.
A Day in the Life
As a Product Advocate, you'll be responsible for managing and responding to customer questions through our service request queue and over the phone. You'll work cross-functionally to make sure the customer is interacting with the right team based on their needs, and support other teams who need assistance answering their customer's product questions. In addition, you'll aggregate and summarize customer feedback and provide to our Product Management and Marketing teams to help define product strategy. You will also support two of our top-attended product demos and assist with customer questions in real-time. Last but not least, you'll be expected to uncover ways to optimize the way we support our customers and seek out new and different ways to help increase satisfaction, all while doing so in a fun and supportive environment!
Required Skills

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.


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?
