  • Engage and build relationships with customers at the C-level and other executive levels, driving to long-standing relationships across the organization

  • participate in customer discovery to understand the customer's current state, what business problems they want to solve, and map back to the Atlassian products, platforms and solutions that will get them where they want to be

  • Probe for and identify additional opportunities for cross-product/solution expansion

  • investigate, discover, and assess client pain points

  • Be a product expert of Atlassian software in the pre-sales process, articulating and showing the customer the value of the software and how it can change their way of working

  • have a broad understanding of full Atlassian product and solution offerings and paint a compelling story of how they work together to unlock the power of teams

  • Lead compelling value-based demonstrations, both standard and customized

  • Understand, lead, and guide the customer's technical needs in the sales process to gain buy-in from the customer on Atlassian being the right decision

On paper, you have 8+ years of experience interacting with Fortune 100 customers in a pre-sales capacity, with excellent communication, strong presentation skills to multi-level senior audiences, and heavy experience with the C-suite. You’ve got unmatched agility to do what it takes to get the job done and rally the internal teams to do the same. That’s not my job isn’t something you’ll hear on this team - if you’re looking to be a cog in the system, this job isn’t for you.

You’re a creative problem solver who can interpret complex business problems, boil them down into solutions, and collaborate with prospects, partners, and the Atlassian sales team to deliver compelling value-based solutions. You’re equally comfortable in both a business and technical context, interacting with executives or talking shop with strong technical audiences. You love to learn and continuously grow and challenge yourself, are open to giving and receiving feedback, tolerate failure, love to win, hate to lose, and are passionate about making customers and Atlassian successful.
