Group Program Manager, Platform

Atlassian's Program Management team is on a mission to ensure that R&D can successfully scale. Specifically, R&D Program Managers at Atlassian build trusted networks, seek clarity and serve as the grease and the glue to ensure teams deliver complex cross functional programs as seamlessly as single team projects. Your impact is amplified beyond delivery through your ability to advance the program management craft. Together, the team develops and applies practices, plays, and agile frameworks, to build pathways for autonomous, empowered, and lasting teams.
