Security Engineer, Ecosystem

Our security team is growing. We are building a new Ecosystem Security team to guide the security strategy and initiatives for third-party apps which customers can use with their Atlassian products. Are you excited at the prospect of enabling thousands of application developers to improve the security of their applications, and ultimately improve the security of millions of users that deploy and use these applications with Atlassian products? Atlassian has an amazing opportunity for you!

This Security Engineer will work closely with the product and platform engineering teams to ensure Atlassian’s APIs allow third party applications to safely integrate with Atlassian’s cloud and server products. We want to build a strong security foundation for all applications in Atlassian’s ecosystem and your responsibilities will include defining security policies and best practices for Marketplace applications. Last, but not least, you will work closely with the Atlassian Marketplace team and our internal security teams to make processes and tooling available for third-party developers to help them improve their security posture and comply with Marketplace security standards. You'll also be able to spend up to 20% of your time on independent research.

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

  • 4+ years working in security
  • Experience in SaaS security models, cloud security architecture and infrastructure
  • Experience coding in Java, Python or Go, and at least one scripting language.
  • Experience leading projects from start to finish and mentoring other security practitioners
  • Expertise in building developer commitment to security
  • Experience building security programs aimed at understanding and improving the security posture of products.
  • An ability to reason about security decisions
  • An ability to communicate ideas clearly and effectively to engineers who know way more than you about their code


  • Contributions to the security community or open source projects
  • Presentation experience at industry events
  • Experience building security programs for third-party software developers
