The primary focus of your role will be to take ownership of the broad technical direction to ensure our products are evolving and sustainable for the long term.
Aside from strong technical prowess including hands on coding ability you will have deep understanding of architecture and an ability to foresee and plan for changes, you are also an effective communicator. You need to be able to translate your deep technical skills to influence other developers, product managers and senior managers to ensure the team understands the vision, is on-board with it, and is moving towards achieving the product's ongoing goals.

More about you
We'd love if you have an extensive background in full-stack development, SOA architectures, API design, networking, internet topology, and virtualization. It also helps to have strong skills in software construction and integration patterns. We will want you to have an understanding of high-availability, fault-tolerant, and scalable systems.
Personality-wise, if you're good with "fixing the plane while in flight" (not just greenfield solutions), you will be right for this role. You will have the ability to ask tough questions, have a principled but also pragmatic approach to decision-making, have stellar written and verbal communication abilities (that also means skilled interactions with developers and non-technical people alike), and experience as a public speaker. You're also the type that loves to teach others and be hands on yourself.
Finally you are an effective communicator, able to articulate your technical & architectural know-how in a way that will influence the engineering teams towards a united vision and goal, understanding that building incredible software cannot be done in isolation but together as one team.
Some Developer roles at Atlassian require international travel 1-4 times per year. Your recruiter will discuss whether this is a requirement for you during your initial conversation with us.
