Senior Sales Strategy & Operations Analyst

Job Description

At Atlassian, we are on a mission to reinvent B2B selling.  We have built a $400m+, fast-growing business without traditional sales tactics.   By focusing relentlessly on high-quality products and converting free trials into happy customers, we have created a prolific "Flywheel" delivering 60,000 customers to date. We believe we can proactively engage with our customers through "Smart Touch" - specific, value-added outbound engagements that generate higher conversions and incremental bookings throughout the customer lifecycle.  The Senior Sales Strategy & Operations Analyst is integral to this program - leading the reporting and generating insights needed to execute Smart Touch effectively.

What we want to get done:

  • Build foundational reporting around underlying sales metrics (lead conversion, opportunity forecasting, bookings).  Create real-time dashboards that a sales leader can easily follow.  Be able to work with a technical team to identify customer needs and develop reporting requirements for BI dashboards.

  • Own the end-to-end process of tracking key sales and operational metrics and delivering regular insights to Atlassian partner teams (inside sales, channel partners, customer success managers, renewals team, etc.).

  • Lead change management and go-to-market projects.  Identify root cause and execute related projects to improve team performance around key customer lifecycle and conversion metrics.

  • Collaborate with executive management, inside sales and channel management to identify and prioritize "Engagement Experiments" based on bookings upside potential.

  • Refine customer segmentation, help design ideal engagement model, and execute a plan to enhance cross-sell/up-sell velocity.

  • Implement a sales capacity model that allows Atlassian to predictably tie deployment of incremental sales resources to incremental bookings.

  • Help plan and own internal quarterly business reviews and strategic planning of key customer accounts.

More about you

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

  • A strong desire to execute, drive impact, and demonstrate urgency with projects big and small.

  • Ninja-like analysis skills: You know what questions to ask, what the data says, and what actions we can take based upon the results.  You are a power user of Excel and either have strong SQL skills or willingness to learn.

  • Slick ability to package data into relevant insight: You’ll be expected to build best-in-class, real-time dashboards from CRM data.  Solid BI (e.g., Tableau, GoodData, Wave) and Salesforce expertise is a big asset.

  • Project management whiz: You proactively scope a complex project, break it into manageable chunks, and execute against a work plan.  You communicate deliverables regularly and avoid preventable fire drills.

  • You love partnering: You get that an organization is made up of very different parts. You relish influencing other teams and co-piloting cross-team initiatives.

  • Process improvement knowhow:  Continuous improvement is in your DNA.  You can enhance business processes from the diagnosis to documentation to execution.

  • Ability and desire to cover the range of activities from C-level presentations to hands-on, data deep-dives.

  • Minimum 4-6 years of ever-increasing responsibility in Sales Operations, Strategy, BizOps, or Analytics role within a B2B (ideally SaaS) company or in a strategy consulting environment.
