Apr 06 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 looking for a backend software engineer to join our Dev Tooling team. You’ll be joining a team focused on building tools for fellow Atlassians with a focus on ensuring a unified and enjoyable experience for development teams to leverage from project creation through production deployment.  Our team has a direct impact on the day-to-day quality of life for fellow Atlassian engineers.

In this role, you’ll get the chance to:

  • Spend your day head down in code.
  • Solve complex and interesting problems.
  • Contribute to code reviews and documentation as well as take on complex bug fixes
  • Begin writing useful technical documentation
  • Drive internal team projects to completion
  • Mentor more junior members

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

  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent
  • Proficiency in Python and/or Go. 
  • Fluency in any one database technology (e.g. Postgres or other RDBMS, and/or NoSQL like DynamoDB)
  • Experience using AWS and Docker containers
  • Real passion for collaboration and strong interpersonal and communication skills

It’s great, but not required, if you have:

  • Experience using Kubernetes
  • Experience with highly available systems
  • Experience working with a distributed team
