About Atlassian

Tools for teams, from startup to enterprise: Atlassian provides tools to help every team unleash their full potential

Job Description

Working at Atlassian
Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Assuming you have eligible working rights and a sufficient time zone overlap with your team, you can choose to work remotely or return to an office as they reopen (unless it’s necessary for your role to be performed in the office). Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.
Atlassian is empowering hundreds of thousands of customers in over 190 countries and rapidly growing. Keeping our customer data secure is our top priority. The Product Security team ensures that Atlassian products are developed securely. The team's mission is to enable engineering teams to build secure products while providing them with the appropriate security context to make decisions. We are looking for an enthusiastic Senior Application Security Engineer to work on the SDL (Secure Development Lifecycle) program, who not only values working with the development teams to secure their products across the entire software development lifecycle but enjoys uplifting the documentation and practices leveraged by the entire team.
In this role, you will work in a security program that owns the definition of the SDL (Secure Development Lifecycle) practices. You will work closely with security and product teams to improve SDL maturity and develop security capabilities to support these practices. SDL practices include but are not limited to creating and improving secure development standards and guidelines, self-service security assurance toolings, SAST and DAST solutions. You will have the opportunity to work with experienced colleagues to empower engineering teams to build secure software by default. You will report to the SDL Product Security Manager.

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

    • Adept experience working in security-focused roles
    • Solid understanding of web application security
    • Review source code (Java, reactJS, and Python are the most common languages)
    • Experience reviewing architectural design and performing threat models of software components
    • An ability to reason about security decisions and communicate security requirements
    • Experience leading projects from start to finish and mentoring other security practitioners

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

    • Web Application penetration testing skills
    • Experience coding in at least one scripting language such as Python
    • Published contributions and presentations at security communities
Our perks & benefits
To support you at work and play, our perks and benefits include ample time off, an annual education budget, paid volunteer days, and so much more.
