We're the Automation Platform team, part of the Teamwork Platform in Atlassian. We're on a mission to bring Automation to all teams. Think of IFTTT or Zapier for the Enterprise. We're building an Automation platform that is powerful, scalable, safe, and flexible - one that both internal and external teams can use and extend equally. We also own product experiences and features that get used by real end-user. We started out by building Automation within Jira, JSW, JSM and Confluence. We're now on a mission to take the Automation Platform to all products! This hybrid allows the team members to have varied experiences, from building scalable, reliable systems using serverless AWS technologies, to creating engaging UIs for the end-users to Automate.

Things about our team:
Small team, big potential: We have big plans, so you can start small and grow with the team
Experienced, no-fuss: We have a mixed bunch of long-term Atlassians, along with some enthusiastic newcomers!

Fast development cycles: 30s hot deploying, sub-60-minute commit, PR, deploy to prod cycles

You'll help the team scale and mature.

  • Help build great people: It's your role to understand the team as individuals and support their specific needs.
