Content Designer, Jira

Information is a powerful and essential element of the user experience. If that statement makes your eyes light up, you might be who we're looking for.
At Atlassian, we look at the way we communicate technical information to our customers as an end-to-end journey. This journey begins with our customers and their needs, continues through the discovery and purchasing process to learning our products and ends with just enough content to guide our customers or solve their problems. We know that good writing and software are not always considered synonymous, and we're on a mission to change that.
This isn't a traditional technical writing role. As part of the Design Team, you'll be empowered to experiment with a variety of approaches to information in the website, UI, documentation, supporting materials, and anywhere else our customers experience information. We are also constantly working to find better ways to measure what makes an information experience successful. You'll be using these methods (perhaps suggesting new methods we've not thought of) to constantly challenge ourselves and improve our craft.
This particular role is for an embedded Content Designer on a newly created team who have been given mandate that will impact all customers in the way they use our products. If you are looking for a role that can have a big impact, this is it.

More about you 
This job is for someone who thinks bigger than traditional software documentation. You can explain complex features within tiny amounts of product real estate and communicate value in a compelling, clear, and effective way.
We're looking for candidates who love to work with teams to ensure they're providing a great information experience. Someone who's ready to not only own the information experience for their customer journey, but also contribute to and help drive projects that benefit the larger documentation community here at Atlassian.

When you join the team, you'd be expected to have:

  • excellent technical writing skills
  • a love for both technical and user content
  • experience working with software development teams and designers, feeding back into all parts of the process - concept, design, development, release and maintenance
  • great stakeholder management skills
  • a proven track record of working in and managing documentation projects in an agile, fast paced environment

And ideally, we'd hope you'd have:

  • a knack for creatively engaging with audiences
  • an ability to challenge yourself and others
  • experience in improving or building both information architectures and content strategies for documentation
  • Bonus points if you have experience working with collaboration tools, wikis, or content management systems.

More about our team
We believe information is critical to any user experience. When you join Atlassian as a Content Designer, you become part of the Atlassian Design organisation. Content design includes everything needed to understand, support, market, and use that product. You won't own all the content, but you'll help make sure the stories we tell are consistent and create a great experience for our customers.
