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.
Confluence transforms how teams everywhere work by getting everyone on the same page. As a Senior Program Manager on the Confluence team, you will directly impact this mission by partnering closely with our leadership teams to bring our strategies to life - driving and executing on key top priority programs that span multiple teams.
As an experienced Program Manager on the Confluence team, you are someone who thrives in making order out of chaos. You can take new strategic plans and work towards executing on them. You will drive completion of cross-organization, top company priority projects, and communicate effectively with R&D teams internal to Confluence and external throughout the rest of the company. To be successful in this role you will be able to dive deep into the technical details across every aspect of the relevant Confluence programs in order to anticipate blockers before they happen. You will need to deeply understand Confluence's priorities, relate them to company level business goals. You are a center of team spirit, and you craft and implement pathways to up-level the team.
Confluence's success is instrumental for Atlassian to hit its business goals and OKRs and you will have a direct hand in this. Does this sound exciting to you? Then you might be the person we're looking for.
In this role, you'll get to:
  • Work across R&D teams for a smooth execution of our strategy.
  • Lead our teams to plan, set goals, execute, and learn
  • Run complex, strategic projects (ranging from technical delivery and analytical deep dives to operational efficiencies)
  • Design and take charge of meaningful dashboards and readouts for key executives
  • Champion and cultivate cross-team relationships to organize and manage dependencies
  • Coordinate work "on the team" such as team health exercises, decision-making plays, and org size/shape assessment. Lead strategic off-sites and associated planning rituals

About you:
  • You are an excellent collaborator and communicator that can expertly inspire change across teams
  • You thrive in ambiguous, complex, challenging and/or changing environments
  • You have the ability to balance priorities among the long-term vision and short-term execution strategy
  • You are a self-starter who can run on your own while keeping others in the know
  • You are attentive to detail and meticulously organized
  • You are able to effectively and collaboratively identify and synchronize project interdependencies across multiple teams, and navigate risks and change along the way.
  • You're a coach, a facilitator and a multiplier, passionate about software product teams, with a focus on teamwork and how we can work better together

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:
  • 7+ years of relevant professional experience working with product, engineering, design and related functions
  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Business, Computer Science or related field (or equivalent experience)
  • Have experience in diagnosing pain points for teams, moving them to 'good', and committing to ensuring they get to 'great'

It's great, but not required if you have:
  • Experience working on programs with web and mobile applications, microservices and relational and non-relational databases
  • Experience working with remote, global, and cross-functional teams and matrix organizations, and an understanding of SaaS business models and enterprise sales

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?
