As a Team Coach at Atlassian, you will:
- Join Atlassian’s Programs and Practices team as a critical driver to scaling our organisation’s success, through championing our teams and building collaboration capabilities
- Partner with our teams to improve their effectiveness, feeding back insights, patterns and themes into the Practices team
- Facilitate instructor led education and enablement
- Create examples of what great looks like, prototyping and designing new tools or proofs of concept that fellow teams can observe and learn from.
- Build upon the Atlassian Playbook, incrementally building out a knowledge base of practices to be leveraged by other products/platform teams.
In order to be successful in this role, you:
- Naturally balance the need for pragmatism and empathy, while being action oriented and results focused.
- Know how to strike the balance on just enough process; you know what will help a team run effectively, and are capable at introducing change in a way that helps make us effective and more confident.
- Think fast on your feet, come up with solutions to critical situations, make timely decisions and take calculated risks. Constantly search for new knowledge or concepts and are willing to learn better ways of doing things.
- Are an excellent communicator. You are able to connect with people all over the globe at various levels of seniority, and you're comfortable calling "BS" if you see it - even with execs!
- Enjoy coaching teams and leadership teams in a remote first ‘Team Anywhere’ working environment.
- Have the ability to quickly develop credibility at all levels of the organisation. You're a multiplier who recognises the intelligence around you and you inspire and motivate others to do their best work.
- Embrace diversity and are highly receptive to new ideas and people who are different. Your positive energy inspires those around you to consistently achieve goals.
Your approach to coaching is enabled through:
- Seeing “scale” as a positive, ensuring teams and individuals benefit from Atlassian growth.
- Agnostic over Methodology - you understand the concepts of Lean, Design Thinking and Agile, but don’t sign up to them as a religion. Instead you pride yourself on making teams effective, not compliant.
- Delivery over Transformation - by default, delivery takes priority. You seek to coach through delivery. But equally know that there may be scenarios in which the team is in the depths of delivery and solving the wrong problem. For a better outcome, you coach teams to “slow down to speed up”.
- Contextual over Standardisation - you acknowledge teams are solving different problems and with varying maturity, so seek for consistency over standardisation. But … equally you absolutely value leveraging learnings from your sister teams.
- Facilitation over Consulting - you believe coaches are enablers, connectors, facilitators. They have skin in the game, part of the team and their upcoming success.
- Transparent, visible progress - you are comfortable sharing the good and the not so good, framing opportunities for further improvement.
- Systemic over Localised - you believe in the impact of working on the system as a whole, rather than optimising locally.
In terms of experience, this means you:
- Have hands on experience leading lean enterprise, large-scale transformation initiatives.
- Are a practitioner at heart, having previously worked in product teams, shipping and iterating customer value.
- Enjoy leading a ground swell of change, to improve and evolve how our teams work together
- Balance the tactical immediate needs, while not losing sight of the longer term strategic needs.
- Appreciate the valuable blend of instructor-led training with just in time team coaching
- Have experience coaching across value streams.
- Are comfortable facilitating conflicting viewpoints, bringing equal voice and perspective across all three crafts, always with the customer need at the core of the conversation.
