Apr 07 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 seeking a Principal Software Engineer to join our Data Exchange Platform team! The DXP team builds abstracted data movement and exchange capabilities via technically opinionated services with the goal of scaling, standardizing, and evolving the transit of data at Atlassian. This team has a wide impact across Atlassian's portfolio of products including innovations and acquisitions. We build services for scale - handling tens of thousands of requests per second and hundreds of millions of requests per day from Atlassian customers. We value and encourage autonomy, and our team members like to roll up their sleeves and drive change. We have a high operational bar and take pride in setting team members up for success.

You'll be joining a dynamic, 25-person engineering team that delivers impactful, creative improvements to our products. As a forward-thinking leader, you'll collaborate regularly with engineers and provide new insights and feedback to help the team deliver a remarkable customer experience. You'll guide the team through ambiguity and new terrain, surefooted and pragmatic even in the dark. 

On their first day, we'll expect the candidates to have:

  • Excellent, in-depth command over SaaS and Cloud with extensive understanding of AWS and the building blocks within that platform
  • Experience building and running large-scale event-based systems like Kafka, AWS Kinesis, or similar
  • Solid understanding of API design and data modeling fundamentals
  • Awareness of the nuances of secure cloud design across Infrastructure and Data
  • Ability to modulate between going wide to address a problem space in tandem with delegating responsibilities to junior team members, as well as rolling your sleeves and diving deep into execution of more abstract problem spaces and prototypes as needed.
  • Proficiency in any modern object-oriented programming language (e.g., Java, Kotlin, Go, Scala etc.). This role involves being an integral part of the implementation as well.
  • Engineering discipline to produce software with quality as part of a high trust team
  • Clear, well-articulated communication to build and express a technical vision for a given platform capability and pitch it to critical internal partners
  • Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent

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

  • Familiarity with enterprise practices like data access control, data sovereignty, and data residency
  • Experience with Kubernetes and Docker
