Principal Strategy and Business Architect, Customer Success and Support
- Austin, TX
Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity, assuming candidates have eligible working rights and a sufficient timezone overlap with their team. As our offices re-open, Atlassians can choose to work remotely or return to an office, unless it’s necessary for the role to be performed in the office. Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.
We’re looking for our next amazing Senior Business Architect to help us turn vision into strategy into tactics. As part of the Customer Success and Support Operations Enablement Team, Our Business Architecture function is responsible for helping to formulate the how & why of our strategy. We’re building a global queue management system, scaling migrations solutions, and improving processes, just to name a few of the exciting programs we have underway. Are you passionate about strategic problem solving and driving a cross-functional team to deliver success? Then we need you!
In this role you’ll work closely with our business analysts, program managers, and developers in a cross-functional team. Your role will be to drive the strategy and tactics towards a measurable goal, helping the team to have a clear picture on what will move the needle the most. Often we have a list of ideas and dreams; you’ll help move these through an ideation workflow to where they’ll be ready to start planning.
You’ll be working on a handful of programs with durations of 3-12 months (the specifics will vary). These programs tackle key CSS business needs and you’ll be able to see a tangible impact on our internal and external customers upon successful completion.
What you are accountable for:
Take high-level business problem statements and translate them into action plans with precise strategies and tactics.
Work with our program delivery teams and support operations teams to help scope the right solutions for the right problems.
Connect with other teams at Atlassian (product, legal, IT, security, field services for example) who are leading changes in the business, with the intent of understanding how our CSS organization should incorporate or influence.
Stay up to date on new market trends and methodologies, helping to ensure that our support organization is working on the right things.
Influence our CSS leadership team with strategic initiatives driven by both internal and outside inputs.
More about you:
You value high-quality work with attention to detail and have a track record of delivering both. You combine curiosity, judgment, humility, and drive, and like asking "why" to unravel a seemingly complex problem and get to the root cause. You engender a collaborative environment where teams work together to solve problems with a positive outlook.
When you encounter a problem, you come up with multiple solutions, weigh the tradeoffs and efforts, identify the best path forward, and exercise good judgment to drive ahead. You have experience in organizational change and turning information and questions into action. You're effectively interacting with people across all levels of an organization and can field questions during a presentation like a pro.
You learn quickly to be impactful in new areas to keep pace with our rapid growth and evolution. You can take an ambiguous assignment and deliver value quickly. You employ multiple tools, methods, and techniques to get things done.
On the first day we'll expect you to have:
- 10+ years of relevant professional experience in product management, strategy management, program management or business analysis.
- Experience building a program from scratch, developing a strategy informed by research.
- Demonstrated ability to move ideas into concrete tactics, including anticipating challenges and helping programs get unblocked.
- It's great, but not required, to have experience working in a dynamic software company with operations and support teams located in different geographies.
