Atlassian is continuing to hire with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. Everyone new to the team, along with our current staff, will temporarily work from home until it is safe to return to our offices.
Atlassian is a leading provider of collaboration, development, and issue tracking software for teams around the world. With over 100,000 global customers (including 85 of the Fortune 100) and millions of users on our cloud platform, we are advancing the power of collaboration with products including Jira Software, Jira Service Desk, Confluence, Bitbucket, Trello, and more. Motivated by clear values, an AMAZING culture, and consistent revenue growth, we’re on a journey to unleash the potential of every team. We’d like you to be a part of this journey.
The Identity Platform division is looking for a passionate engineering manager to lead the runtime-authentication team in our Mountain View, California office. Identity is an innovative and dynamic organization, and in this role you’ll lead a team of talented developers in designing, building, and operating micro-services and capabilities that handle billions of API requests daily to authenticate and authorize millions of users and applications. As an engineering leader, you will drive technical excellence in your team as you contribute to evolving key Identity platform services and capabilities to meet the highest standards of reliability, performance and scale. Your greatest responsibility will be looking after the individuals reporting to you – coaching and supporting them in their professional development, unlocking their potential, and challenging them to step outside their comfort zone to grow and excel.
What you'll do...
- Collaborate with developers, architects, and product managers across several engineering teams to build new and enhance existing Atlassian Identity Platform services and capabilities
- Contribute to the technical and business strategy of the team, including making technical recommendations and functional solutions.
- Guide your teams in understanding the right metrics to track and improve.
- Provide developers with support: holding regular one on ones, giving context on priorities, collaborating with other teams, unblocking projects, resolving conflicts on the team.
- No previous experience in the Identity domain is required. Candidates would benefit from previous experience with building and operating highly scalable micro-services and applications in AWS, and leading high-performing teams.

- The skills for breaking down problems into executable chunks and coordinating multiple engineers to deliver a solution.
- Strong skills mentoring, growing, and retaining talent.
