Location:Sydney
Job Type:Full Time

Do you want to lead an energetic and friendly team that delivers world-class improvements to Jira? We’re on a journey to improve and change the way Jira Cloud works. Having delivered on the promise of making privacy a first class citizen in Atlassian and Jira, the team is moving to new areas. You’ll be working with performance and scale for Jira Enterprise and making sure that we can handle even the largest customer.

You'll be responsible for building effective teams, empowering them to achieve their goals, and putting those goals into broader context. Your greatest responsibility will be looking after the individuals reporting to you, coaching and supporting them in their professional development, unlocking their potential, and challenging them to step outside their comfort zone to grow and excel.

Come help us take Jira to the next level and enable developers to do their jobs better!
