Working at Atlassian

Atlassians can choose where they work – whether in an office, from home, or a combination of the two. That way, Atlassians have more control over supporting their family, personal goals, and other priorities. We can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

This is a remote position. To help our teams work together effectively, this role requires you to be located in the Pacific Timezone.

Your future team

Atlassian’s second flagship product, Confluence, is evolving into a connected knowledge workspace for all teams. As part of this evolution, we’re looking for a design leader who can look beyond a single product and drive more seamless experiences across Confluence, Jira and the rest of the Atlassian solution set.

You will report into the Head of Design for Confluence Monetization & Enterprise and will focus on experimentation, modernization, and long-term strategy of the product. As a Design Manager, you will lead a team of product and content designers working across our onboarding, cross-flow, and upsell experiences. You’ll partner closely with cross-functional leaders to deliver high-quality work in a fast-paced environment.

If you want to help shape the future of Confluence and contribute to the next era of Design at Atlassian, this is the team for you.


  • Manage a team of product and content designers, helping them to do the best work of their lives

  • Lead complex, high-impact initiatives that raise the quality bar for our customers

  • Partner with a range of cross-functional teams (including Engineering, Product Management, Research, Marketing, and Data Science) across our Atlassian product portfolio

  • Collaborate with our platform teams to deliver innovative, cohesive end-to-end experiences

  • Champion the design craft and help shape our processes, practices, and culture

  • Be a part of the growing and thriving Atlassian Design team


  • 8+ years of product design-related experience, including 3+ years of management experience

  • A demonstrated passion for high-quality design and customer experiences

  • Craft expertise in interaction design, prototyping, content design, or visual design

  • Hands-on experience improving the work of those around you, as either a manager or design mentor

  • The ability to drive a user-centered design process that consistently leads to quality outcomes

  • Confidence in presenting work and getting others on board with a chosen design direction

  • A proven track record of effective collaboration with Product Management, Engineering, and other cross-functional teams

  • Strong communication, systems thinking, and cross-functional collaboration skills that you demonstrate in the way you work across multiple teams, solicit and synthesize feedback, and facilitate design discussions


At Atlassian, we strive to design equitable and explainable compensation programs. To support this goal, the baseline of our range is higher than that of the typical market range, but in turn we expect to hire most candidates near this baseline. Base pay within the range is ultimately determined by a candidate's skills, expertise, or experience.

In the United States, we have three geographic pay zones. For this role, our current base pay ranges for new hires in each zone are:

Zone A: $188,800 - $251,700

Zone B: $169,900 - $226,500

Zone C: $156,700 - $208,900

This role may also be eligible for benefits, bonuses, commissions, and equity.

Please visit for more information on which locations are included in each of our geographic pay zones. However, please confirm the zone for your specific location with your recruiter.
