Atlassian is looking for an AI Sales leader to drive our emerging Artificial Intelligence offerings to market successfully as an overlay to our high-touch sales teams. This leader will play a crucial role in driving our emerging Artificial Intelligence sales efforts by providing strategic leadership in close collaboration with the sales, solution engineer, product, and marketing teams to develop and execute comprehensive growth strategies. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in sales, a deep understanding of AI industry trends, and the ability to effectively prioritize efforts to optimize for global revenue impact.

The ideal candidate will possess a unique blend of executive selling expertise, strategic thinking, and leadership skills.

As an individual contributor, this role will work closely with a peer located in Europe for global coverage.


At Atlassian, we strive to design equitable, explainable, and competitive compensation programs.

For this role, our current base pay ranges for new hires in each zone are:

Zone A: $174k-$209k

Zone B: $157k-$188k

Zone C: $144k-$173k

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