UX Design Team Lead

Job Description

If you live and breathe the user experience, love solving hard problems and thrive on variety, then why not consider making your mark as a Design Team Lead with Atlassian.

In this exciting role, you’ll have a foot in craft and still contribute as a designer, but you'll also lead and manage a small team of designers who are looking to you to be a guide and a mentor.

Your team will be responsible for all parts of the Atlassian design process for a specific product (or products), including helping define vision, process and decisions, interaction design, user research and usability testing - Ultimately it’s about creating a killer user experience for our customers!

More about you

We love designers who are eager to deliver across the entire design process, and not just one aspect such as user research or visual design. We’d would love for you to have 5+ years of hands-on professional experience as a UX Designer or Interaction Designer, ideally with software or complex web-based applications experience and 2+ years people management experience.

Your colleagues probably describe you as a self-starter with your eye constantly on simple solutions, and someone who can easily step into the customer's shoes with the enthusiasm to create great experiences. You’ll also need great facilitation and collaboration skills, a flexible and friendly approach to working in teams, and the attitude to always strive for the best outcomes.

More about our team

You’ll be joining a team that is crazy smart and very direct. We challenge each other constantly to improve and ask hard questions. We're dedicated to agile methodology and big believers in 'lean'. We also know all too well the importance of validating assumptions about customers and using various types of testing to prove ourselves right (or wrong). It’s all about improving our user’s experience - no matter who or where they are.

More about the perks

Our offices are open, highly collaborative and yes, fun! To support you at work (and play) we offer some great perks: ample time off to relax and recharge, five paid volunteer days a year for your favourite cause, plenty of food and drinks (including our famous 'Charlie's bar'), ergonomic workstations with Aeron chairs, 20% work time for your passion projects, unique ShipIt days, a company paid trip after five years and more.
