Job Description

Are you passionate about software quality? Do you think like an analyst, care passionately about getting it right first time, and view coding with the eyes of a high-energy perfectionist? Then please, read on!

At Atlassian we've reinvented QA. For us, the difference between making good software and making great software is our Software Quality Engineers. Not to be confused with traditional QA’s or testers, our Quality Engineers are the guardians of the quality of our code base. In simple terms, testing at Atlassian is performed by our developers, who are responsible for the maintaining quality standards in their own coding – the opposite of other companies, where a QA’s job is to fix bugs on a developer’s behalf.

  • You will assist with building the long-term Quality roadmap for all of Atlassian’s products.
  • You’ll take point on quality related decisions through sophisticated, data backed, business cases offering compelling options.
  • You will promote, define, refine and implement continuous innovation in QA processes.

You will also have most of following;

  • Expert knowledge of Service Quality - Eradicating, preventing, detecting and mitigating quality risks.
  • A passion for Risk Management - Identifying high risk/high reward opportunities and betting boldly, but not recklessly, on them
  • A keen interest in Recruitment - Sourcing and recruiting the best talent for QA via outbound and inbound channels.
  • Validated experience in Team Leadership - Being a visible role model for the QA Engineers in getting things done and meeting your own goals and commitments, helping your team to grow, develop and hit their individual goals
  • Great skills in Relationship Management - Fostering and maintaining strong relationships with partners, product family collaborators, QA managers and cross-functional leaders.
