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, every Atlassian will have the choice to work from an office or from home.

We’re looking for a commercial transactions attorney to join our growing team. This role will be the first sales legal support located in Europe, supporting strategic transactions for Atlassian in a strong and continually growing market for Atlassian. As a foundational member of the legal team in Europe, you will have an exciting opportunity to grow the team, and establish the legal team’s presence, from the ground up. As a member of our commercial transactions team, you will draft and negotiate a variety of outbound contracts, with an emphasis on enterprise agreements.

This individual may be located in our Amsterdam office, but we are open to hiring in one of our other European office locations, or remotely in the EU or UK for the right candidate.

Your core responsibilities will include:

  • Negotiating enterprise cloud and license agreements for applicable Atlassian products and services in support of direct and channel sales in EMEA.
  • Collaborating with our privacy, risk and compliance, security, finance, accounting and product teams to facilitate contract reviews and internal process improvement, and development and enhancement of our customer-facing forms.
  • Providing pragmatic, business-minded guidance on contract-related issues.
  • Developing support materials and providing trainings to educate our direct sales and channel teams on contract terms and other legal issues.
  • Coordinating with US-based legal colleagues to harmonize recurring EMEA customer requests and reduce friction points.
  • Cultivating a detailed working knowledge of priorities and business strategies of sales and channels teams, and fostering strong relationships with key partners. 

More about the qualifications of an ideal candidate:

  • 4+ years of experience (with at least two of those years in-house required) drafting and negotiating enterprise technology contracts directly with customers.
  • Legally permitted to practice law in at least one EU member state or in the UK.
  • Strong knowledge of commercial law application in civil law jurisdictions.
  • Experience in discussing data protection topics, particularly with respect to GDPR and EU state-specific implementation regimes, and revenue recognition issues in connection with sales contracts.
  • Excellent judgment and strong communication skills.
  • Self-starter and great teammate with a sense of urgency to get things done.
  • Ability to handle competing priorities in a dynamic environment and collaborate across a distributed team.
  • Willingness to handle new areas of responsibility.
  • Fluency in English, as a minimum (proficiency in other languages such as Dutch, German, French, or others, is a bonus).
  • CIPP/E certification, understanding of EMEA financial services and other regulatory regimes is a bonus, but not a requirement.
