Last updated 4 minutes ago
Location:Sydney
Job Type:Full Time

Atlassian is continuing to hire with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. All new and existing Atlassians will continue to work from home until it’s safe to return to our offices. When our offices re-open, we will provide the choice to work from home or return to work in an office unless a job requirement makes it necessary for a particular role to be performed at an Atlassian office.

Atlassian helps teams everywhere change the world. Our products are revolutionizing the software industry and helping teams collaborate and craft the magic that delivers their best work. Think NASA launching the Rover on Mars or Cochlear gifting those born deaf with the ability to hear, your work directly impacts the products they use to advance humanity.

We're looking for an Engineering Manager to lead a team of remote Australian based developers, working on the central messaging platform in Atlassian, building high levels of reliability and at a large scale. We seek to get the complexities, inherent in sending over 7 billion notifications annually, out of the way of Atlassian developers and customers. Our mission is to provide a highly available, cost effective, large scale messaging delivery solution for all Atlassian Cloud products across the globe. The team covers all the aspects of design, engineering, implementation, operations and tools/automation development & ops. We build it and we run it.

You'll be responsible for running an effective team, 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, mentoring and supporting them in their professional development, unlocking their potential, and challenging them to step outside their comfort zone to grow and excel. You'll work closely with product management and other teams to manage the direction of the project.

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • Employee performance & growth management
  • Operational experience for running mission-critical production services for teams
  • Experience leading a software development team in a technical capacity
  • Ability to mentor developers to drive team culture, pushing innovation and quality
  • Ability to maintain good cohesion and culture for a remote team

It's great if you have:

  • Significant experience with building large scale cloud services
  • Experience building, automating, and maintaining infrastructure in AWS such as the AWS API Gateway and Lambda’s
  • Familiarity with handling large scales of messages and e-mail delivery architecture
