Senior Front End Engineer


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.

The Atlassian Frontend Platform team is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to help us build the future of our frontend developer platform. The problems we tackle are some of the most challenging and exciting in the industry, from scaling monorepo infrastructure to frontend performance to the future of bundling at scale. Your job will be to help the team solve these challenges and contribute to the future vision for our platform. You will be surrounded by a team of passionate problem solvers who are dedicated to creating world-class tooling.

By joining the AFP team you will have an opportunity to develop the platform that Atlassian builds upon to craft fast, scalable, and reliable frontend experiences. As part of your role, you will work closely with engineers across the company to solve their problems and improve our platform. If you are passionate about developer infrastructure, asset bundling, frontend performance, and working on open source, this is the opportunity you've been waiting for!

On your first day, we expect you to have:

    • Exposure to JavaScript build tooling with an interest in optimizing the development loop
    • A deep understanding of the JavaScript language and ecosystem
    • Passion for developer productivity and coding patterns at scale
    • Understanding of how to build performant, decoupled, testable, and maintainable code
    • Evidence of enjoying sharing knowledge, tips, and tricks, and helping other developers
    • 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 great – but not required – for you to have:

    • Experience measuring and implementing performance optimizations
    • Experience developing large scale applications with NodeJS and React
    • Operational experience – instrumenting code, and monitoring the errors, metrics, and analytics of large-scale web applications
    • Experience with open-source projects, having contributed to or owned one
    • Some industry experience with public cloud offerings (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure)
    • Familiarity with microservices and related patterns
