cloud java aws backend testing
Feb 19 2021
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 is searching for a backend Software Engineer to join the Jira Cloud Scale & Performance team in Gdansk.
The Jira Cloud Scale & Performance is responsible for improving scalability of Jira Cloud, the most popular product among 194 000 Atlassian customers all over the world.
Now, the team behind the Jira Cloud platform has a huge role to play in enabling our customers' journey to the Cloud. Together, we are enabling customers to confidently extend their Atlassian Cloud products, without trading off on security or reliability.

Where you’ll make an impact:

  • As a member of the Jira Cloud Scale & Performance team, you will build, improve and operate the infrastructure, services and APIs that are part of Jira Cloud platform, a building block used by Jira Software, Jira Service Management and other products including third party developers to extend Atlassian products.
  • We will focus especially on the needs of Enterprise customers, who seek guarantees that Jira Cloud meets their scale requirement.
  • Together we will work on solutions increasing Jira Cloud throughput and performance, a foundation for constantly growing Cloud customer base, yet not impacting user experience. For example how can we scale horizontally introducing eventual consistency whilst having no impact on reliability and user experience?
  • In this role, you will collaborate closely not only with your immediate team, but also with engineers across a wide range of Jira Cloud product family, infrastructure teams, as well as with product managers.

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

  • Understanding software development in JVM languages like Java or Kotlin and an understanding of how to write performant, decoupled, testable, maintainable code.
  • Understanding of high-availability, fault-tolerant, scalable, distributed systems.
  • Willingness to take ownership of the software you write all the way to production, and experience operating software in production. This includes building monitoring into your code, tweaking dashboards, defining alerts, writing runbooks, etc...
  • Experience with agile software development methodologies and software development practices (unit testing, pair programming, and continuous integration).
  • Ability to communicate and collaborate on ideas and designs with your team and beyond, in a remote working environment.
  • A "non-hero approach": rather than celebrating heroic efforts pulled off to resolve an incident, prefer engaging in engineering practices that avoid the incidents in the first place!

The following are not required, but definite bonuses:

  • Experience with Amazon AWS cloud offering
  • Experience with RDMS, Elasticsearch
  • Good understanding of typical web application patterns and challenges of both microservices and serverless architectures.
  • Experience with incident management processes and participating in 24/7 on-call rosters.
