Senior Software Engineer, Data Platform

    • Mountain View, CA
Atlassian is continuing to hire with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. All new and existing Atlassians will continue to work from home until it’s safe to return to our offices. When our offices re-open, every Atlassian will have the choice to work from an office or from home.

Job description

Atlassian is looking for a Software Engineer to join our data platform team in IT which is responsible for building our real-time data ingestion system, maintaining our big data technologies and facilitating the movement of billions of messages each day. We are looking for an open-minded, structured thinker who is passionate about building services that scale.

On a typical day you will help our engineering teams ingest data faster into our data lake, you’ll find ways to make our data pipelines more efficient, or even come up with ideas to help instigate self-serve data engineering within the company. Then you will move on to architecting, designing, and building a platform at a scale that very few other people have had to work with.

You’ll get the opportunity to work on APIs that multiple people depend on both internally and externally to Atlassian and an AWS based platform which uses technologies such as ElasticSearch and DynamoDB. We are a team with very little legacy in our tech stack and as a result you’ll spend less time paying off technical debt and more time identifying ways to make our platform better and improve our users experience.

More about you
As a software engineer in the data platform team, you will have the opportunity to apply your strong technical experience building highly reliable services. You enjoy working in a fast paced environment and you are able to take vague requirements and transform them into solid solutions. You are motivated by solving challenging problems, where creativity is as crucial as your ability to write code.

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

  • A BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • Strong programming skills (some combination of Python, Java and Node.js preferred)
  • Experience building and designing platforms and micro services
  • Experience with ElasticSearch, DynamoDB, and other technologies to process incredible volumes of streaming data
  • Experience writing GraphQL, structuring data, and data storage practices
  • Experience leading a project from beginning until completion
  • A passion for mentoring and sharing knowledge with other developers
  • A willingness to accept failure, learn and try again
  • An open mind to try solutions that may seem crazy at first
  • Experience working on Amazon Web Services (in particular using S3, SQS and the like)
  • U.S. Bachelor or higher degree, or its equivalent, in Computer Science, Information Technology, Information Systems Management or a closely related field of study.

It's preferred, but not required that you have:

  • Experience building self-service tooling and platforms
  • A passion for building and running continuous integration pipelines.

You’ll be joining a strong team that is spread out among multiple Atlassian locations. We value when people ask hard questions and challenge each other to constantly improve our work. We are independent but love highly collaborative team environments, so you'll get the opportunity to work with lots of other awesome people just like you.
