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 are seeking an outstanding Principal Program Manager to drive transformational People programs that deliver high quality People products to our business and elevate the Atlassian employee experience.
This is an excellent role for someone with deep experience in both program management and People teams (e.g. Talent, HR, TA, Compensation) who is passionate about technology, digging deep into the data, and championing the employee experience. Strong candidates are program leaders with a track record of successfully launching large scale, high complexity, high impact programs. Risk, dependency, and change management super powers are essential for role success.
