Job Description

Is leadership in your DNA? Make your mark as a Team Lead for our developers who build features for our awesome software dev tools and next-generation products. This diverse position will provide technical leadership and mentorship through pairing, daily stand-ups, code reviews and ongoing support. You'll work closely with developers, product managers and designers to craft our products. You’ll ensure that commitments stay on track, remove any roadblocks, and facilitate timely decision-making. You’ll also help the team evaluate new features and the impact of trade offs. 


This role meets with team members one-on-one to foster growth and help developers reach their goals. You’ll also collaborate with other teams across Atlassian to exchange expertise and ensure project coordination is handled smoothly.

  • Deep understanding of software development in a Java environment
  • Strong experience growing and nurturing high performing, agile teams (4-6 person)
  • Architectural experience scaling out web applications
  • Experience in Cloud Architecture, or at least the dream to learn
  • Experience mentoring developers and encouraging them to flourish

More about this team  
We are always growing, learning, and adapting, in and out of the office. You’ll be joining a team that is smart and direct. We ask hard questions and challenge each other to constantly improve our work. We are self driven but team oriented. We're dedicated to agile methodology and big believers in 'lean'. We know the importance of validating our assumptions about users and implement various types of testing to figure out whether we’re right (or wrong). Our bottom line is improving our user’s experience, no matter what.


More about the perks

Our offices are open, highly collaborative and yes, fun! To support you at work (and play) we offer some killer perks: ample time off to relax and recharge, five paid volunteer days a year for your favourite cause, plenty of food and drinks (including our famous 'Charlie's bar'), ergonomic workstations with Aeron chairs, unique ShipIt days, a company paid trip after five years and more.
