Senior Architect - Server Enterprise

Location:Sydney
Job Type:Full Time

Atlassian is continuing to hire for all open roles with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. Everyone new to the team, along with our current staff, will temporarily work from home until it is safe to return to our offices.

Team Server is responsible for the self-hosted versions of the Atlassian products everyone knows and loves. Team Server has been incredibly successful over the last 4 years in delivering products at increasing scale and complexity. Team Server Enterprise is focussed on our biggest customers as their needs become more complex and demanding. The most successful companies in the world rely on our solutions to deliver critical business infrastructure. But our story is evolving, more and more of our customers are moving to private Cloud and are engaging with SaaS vendors including our own offerings.

The person in this role will answer these questions for our customer:

  • How do we tell a story to our customers about scale and performance in a private Cloud world?
  • How do we tell a story to our customers about an increasingly hybrid (self-hosted blended with SaaS) world?
  • How do we define our architecture to leverage these new platforms and tell a story about the Cloudy future?
  • How do we bridge our customers from their self hosted world to the future of Atlassian which is our SaaS Enterprise offering?

Key Responsibilities:

  • Building a 3 year architectural vision for our Server Enterprise products.
  • Considering the needs of existing customers and the overall Atlassian strategy in building out this vision.
  • Partnering with the senior product leadership of all our existing self hosted products.
  • Leading from the front in terms of deep technical expertise, and using these skills to inspire, motivate and mentor our more senior technical staff.
  • Considering the industry trends and directions when building out this 3 year architectural vision.
  • Leading the existing set of architects to a cohesive vision that considers the existing architecture of our products.
  • Partnering with Cloud Enterprise technical leadership in shaping a vision that underpins the success of Team Server Enterprise for the next five years and draws a strong clear line to Cloud Enterprise for our biggest customers.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Have walked the walk in regards to bringing self hosted applications to a Cloud world.
  • Have large enterprise software deployment expertise in on-premise and cloud (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud).
  • Be an authority on large scale application development, including clustering methodologies, with demonstrated knowledge in application performance measurement and optimization.
  • Have demonstrated experience in influencing multi-functional teams and guiding complex technical initiatives to successful conclusion.
  • "get" the Enterprise, and will have demonstrated experience in solving the particular needs of Enterprise customers.
