Do you have a passion for crafting products and insights with data? Do you love the idea of rapidly iterating on new features and finding the ones which move the needle and hit customer engagement out of the ballpark? Would you like to drive real change at the world’s hottest SaaS company?

You are able to work effectively with a variety of other disciplines across the company.
 
In a data-hungry place like Atlassian experiencing rapid growth, business opportunities from the application of data science abound. Join us for the opportunity to do groundbreaking applied machine learning work that will help shape the Atlassian user experience!
