Working at Atlassian

Atlassians have flexibility in 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.

Atlassian is seeking a Lead Principal Machine Learning Software Engineer to join our Central AI team. The Central AI organization constructs the fundamental infrastructure, data pipeline, frameworks, models, and other capabilities to expedite AI feature development throughout the entire company.


Your future team

The Central AI organization is a key component of the broader Atlassian Intelligence initiative. Its mission is to expedite AI innovation across all our products and platforms, ensure a unified AI user experience, and establish a robust AI infrastructure for Atlassian's future.

While it's anticipated that the majority of AI-driven initiatives will be developed and executed by federated product teams within Atlassian, the role of Central AI is pivotal to this process. Central AI is tasked with constructing the underlying infrastructure and capacities, which are crucial for the seamless integration and optimal functionality of AI across various departments. By doing so, Central AI ensures that different teams within the organization do not work in silos but have access to a unified foundation that promotes efficiency and collaboration. Additionally, Central AI is responsible for developing some of the core shared experiences typical in the AI domain, such as search, knowledge discovery and conversation.

What you’ll do

As a Lead Principal Machine Learning Software Engineer, your role will be instrumental in steering the development and deployment of advanced machine learning algorithms. You will be tasked with training complex models and working in close collaboration with product, back end/front end engineering, and analytics teams to seamlessly integrate AI functionalities into every Atlassian product and service. Your day-to-day responsibilities will span a wide range of tasks, including designing system and model architectures, conducting meticulous experimentation and model evaluations, and mentoring budding ML engineers. Your role extends beyond these tasks, playing a crucial part in harnessing the transformative power of AI across our product suite.


Your background

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

  • Master or PhD in a quantitative subject (Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Operations Research, or relevant work experience)

  • 15+ years of related industry experience in the data science domain

  • Expertise in Python or Java with and the ability to write performant production-quality code, familiarity with SQL, knowledge of Spark and cloud data environments (e.g. AWS, Databricks)

  • Experience building and scaling machine learning models in business applications using large amounts of data

  • Ability to communicate and explain data science concepts to diverse audiences, craft a compelling story

  • Focus on business practicality and the 80/20 rule; very high bar for output quality, but recognize the business benefit of "having something now" vs "perfection sometime in the future"

  • Agile development mindset, appreciating the benefit of constant iteration and improvement

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

  • Experience working in a consumer or B2C space for a SaaS product provider, or the enterprise/B2B space

  • Experience with large-scale web search or enterprise search systems

  • Experience in developing deep learning-based models and working on LLM-related applications

  • Excelling in solving ambiguous and complex problems, being able to navigate through uncertain situations, breaking down complex challenges into manageable components and developing innovative solutions
